|The recommendations of the National Commission on Urbanisation led the Govt. of India to constitute a Parliamentary Standing Committee which recommended 74th Constitution Amendment Act. in 1993. This amendment conferred a constitutional footing on Urban Local Bodies and assured a Uniform Urban Administrative pattern in the Country following principle of democratic decentralisation - envisaging more powers to the elected body, more power to the women, more transparency in administration, widened harizons of activities and less but limited control of the State Govt. State Finance Commission, District Planning Committee, reservation for women, Scheduled Caste & Tribes were made. Ward Committee were set up, elections at regular intervals were made compulsory, new powers were delegated to them to raise more funds through taxation and levy of fees to become self-reliant. This State has implemented all the provisions of the 74th C.A.A. Many of these provisions were in fact, in existence in the State’s decentralised Urban Administration policies since late seventies but now they enjoy better backup by constitutional sanction.
