Book Description

About The Book

The book in the existing context empirically examines the Municipal Administration in Uttar Pradesh. On the basis of his findings Dr. G. D Bhatt arrives at the conclusion that government is burdening the municipal bodies in Uttar Pradesh with increasing responsibilities without matching support in the form of expansion in staff and other facilities. He has marshaled statistical data to support his contention. Recruitment rules are not satisfactory; training is conspicuous by its absence; absence of a rational pattern of pay-scales; unsatisfactory provision of fringe benefits; municipal finances just not enough to enable the urban bodies to perform nation-building activities properly and make out towns ideal and worth living and the government has not adopted a modern code of grants-in aid.
