To prevent crowding in the premises of the Municipal Corporation of Dehradun (MCD) amid the Covid-19 pandemic, municipal commissioner Vinay Shankar Pandey recently directed the officials to set up three counters in Town Hall from Thursday to hear the queries and problems of the public. Pandey said that this initiative is taken to minimise the risk of contagion among people as well as the officials of the corporation. Pandey has appointed six MCD officials who will hear the issues of locals on working days.
On the first day, deputy municipal commissioner Sonia Pant and senior municipal health officer Dr R K Singh were assigned the duty in Town Hall. Pant informed that she received about five complaints which were about blocked drainage, sanitation, damaged streetlights and sanitisation besides two queries regarding death certificate and property tax. She said necessary action has been taken by MCD on every complaint. Pant said that anyone who has any queries and complaints can visit the Town hall from 11 AM to 1 PM.
Meanwhile, the toll free number of municipal corporation is still not functional since the first lockdown and according to Pandey it would not be restored anytime soon too. Pandey said that it requires about 15-20 people to operate a call centre which would not be possible while maintaining social distancing in the centre, therefore people can approach MCD officials in Town Hall for their issues. He said if any local needs to meet him or the mayor for any particular issue, they will be available to hear out their problems.
