BENGALURU: The Urban Development Department on Monday evening issued an order restructuring and increasing number of zones in the city from eight to 10.A senior official from Urban Development said, “This will be the base for the government to make smaller corporations out of BBMP. This is just a beginning.
The state government’s move to split the BBMP was objected by the Centre. It said we cannot do anything till the next Council poll. So we have time to prepare for the bigger split into five corporations.”
In the BBMP budget, an exclusive Corporation Act for BBMP was mooted. BBMP is working under Karnataka Muncipal Corporation Act.
“If BBMP is divided into more corporations, we need to have a dedicated Act. Government has not started framing draft rules yet,’’ a Congress Councillor said.
