Respected Chairman Sir,
1.0 With your permission I rise to present the proposed Budget Estimates of Siliguri Municipal Corporation under Section 69 of the West Bengal Municipal Corporation Act, 2006 for the financial year 2012-2013 along with Revised Budget for the financial year 2011-2012. I also like to avail the opportunity to welcome all Hon’ble Councillors who are present and request all of them to take part in the discussion and to adopt the Budget Estimate of the income amounting to Rs. 146.57 crores and expenditure amounting to Rs. 147.82 crores for the year 2012-2013.
1.1 Before placement of the Budget Estimates for the year 2012-2013, I would like to mention that on account of Assembly Election of West Bengal Legislative Assembly (which was held in May 2011), the Budget Estimates of Siliguri Municipal Corporation for the financial year 2011-2012 was placed in the meeting of the Councillors of Siliguri Municipal Corporation on the 25th day of August 2011 & the same was adopted by the Board of Councillors of SMC with few modification on 27th August, 2011 and as a result of which the present Board of Councillors have got little time of only 6/7 months to conclude the financial year 2011-2012. However we have tried our best to bring a qualitative change in the Municipal Administration in such short span of time to fulfill our task with financial assistance of both Central & State Govt. and from our own earning.
1.2 I like to mention here again that during preparation of Budget Estimate for the year 2012-2013 of Siliguri Municipal Corporation, emphasis has been given for need base development of Siliguri keeping in mind the trend of urbanization of this town as we are committed to the people of Siliguri to develop Siliguri Municipal Corporation as a people oriented strong organization and which will take various developmental activities in greater public interest.
