The Delhi government on Monday informed the Delhi High Court that it has initiated the process to place the report of the 4th Finance Commission of Delhi before the legislative assembly.
Justice R.S. Endlaw was told by the government that the report along with a memorandum of action taken on the commission’s recommendations was placed before the lt. governor, who ordered it to be laid before the Delhi legislative assembly.
The court in September asked the Delhi government to inform it whether it would table in the upcoming assembly session the 4th Finance Commission recommendations on improving the financial condition of civic bodies.
Filing an affidavit in the court, the Delhi government said: “The process for placing the report before legislative assembly during the current session has already been initiated.”
The court was hearing a plea filed by BJP legislator Vijender Gupta seeking direction to the Delhi government to “immediately implement” the recommendations of the 4th Finance Commission of Delhi which was constituted in 2009 to decide the share of municipal corporations in the total revenue of the capital.
