Patna News: Patna’s Civic Body Budget Will Be Dedicated to Clean Environment| Patna News

Patna: For fiscal 2022-23, the budget of Patna Municipal Corporation will give more weight to waste management and disposal, infrastructure projects and the environment. Its members of the standing committee will discuss the budget at the next meeting, which will take place within one week.
Sita Sahu, Patna mayor, said that the PMC budget would be available by February-mid. It will likely be a surplus budget and focus on daily waste management at Ramachak Bairiya.
The budget will address the shortages in basic facilities like water supply, sanitation, roads, upgradation and healthcare. She said that the budget should prioritize completing pending infrastructure projects.
Indradeep Chandravanshi (a member of an empowered standing committee) stated that the first priority for the PMC is to eliminate 12 lakh tonnes of garbage at the Ramachak Bairiya dump site. As the segregation process begins, material recovery facilities are being installed to manage legacy garbage. We also plan on disposing of daily waste from both commercial and residential places. Each ward will be equipped with automatic organic waste converter machines. It will help us reduce the waste. He explained that the ward councillors need to designate a location for the machine’s installation.
The machines will be installed by the city’s big hotels to dispose of organic waste. The civic body plans to also set up secondary garbage points in all circles — Azimabad Bankipore Kankarbagh New Capital Patliputra, Kankarbagh, Kankarbagh, Kankarbagh, Kankarbagh, Kankarbagh, Kankarbagh, Kankarbaghe and Patna City. We currently have a Gardanibagh secondary garbage point, and another one is being built at Agamkuan. Indradeep (councillor for Ward 48) said that we also need permission to install 13 new overhead water tanks at different locations.
According to him, six large drains will be redeveloped in the city by the civic body. They will receive a Rs1,000-crore package for five years from the urban development department. They will give Rs 200 crore for the fiscal year 2022-23. Indradeep said that six drains are being redeveloped and that three of them will be beautified by the smart-city project.
These drains include Patel Nagar and Kurji, Saidpur. Sri Krishnapuri, Yogipur, Kankarbagh, and Yogipur. To address the traditional parking problem in Patna, the PMC will also develop smart parking lots at 38 unorganized vehicle-parking spaces through a public-private partnership (PPP). This budget will also provide funds to fix the roads that are unsafe or have been dug up for other projects.
