The Jalgaon City Municipal Corporation's Special General called yesterday turned to a violent mode when newly formed group leader and opposition leaders had a few exchanges of slurs. The fight begun with heat exchange ended with both beating each other badly and was finally stopped by City Police.
The Special Meeting was called to discuss No-Confidence Motion against Corporation Commissioner on 7 various reasons. The whole day at Corporation begun amidst strong protest against ruling party on this no-confidence motion by various organizations and ended with both wrestlers and their parties filling Police complaints against each other. The ruling party amidst the whole chaos put up the No-confidence motion and had 46 votes of its own members favoring this resolution while the opposition did not vote for/ against this resolution seeing the whole epic. The whole shameful tragedy baffled the Administration authorities seeing this for the first time and the Commissioner could not get time even to answer the Motion drove against him. Corporation Commissioner submitted his written answer to the no-confidence motion afterwards. Please read detailed answers below in next topic.

The Corporation area right from morning was under tight security with 3 large vans, 3 vehicles, Rapid Action Force and Ladies Police patrolling the area and the whole nearby periphery was sealed to avoid any of such issues.
Answer to No-Confidence Motion:
(As quoted by Dr. Pravin Gedam, Commissioner, Jalgaon City Municipal Corporation)
1) Housing Scheme:
The whole housing allotment case had severe financial irregularities and I have no doubts on that whole case. Around 11,500 houses in the allotment process were given at almost free cost which is purely a financial suicide. All Office bearers including public representatives made decisions that were favorable to Contractor. The whole scheme did not have Non-Agricultural Land and Construction permission and hence I conveyed this to State Government.
I have urged Authorities to make an Audit of whole allotment process and those responsible be held and the amount be collected from them.
2) I have joined Corporation on 09th October 2005 and till that date Corporation Taxation collection was 2.84 Crores and now in last 5-6 months the revenue has sky rocketed to 15 Crores figure. Our Administration issued historic large number of Section 406(3) notices without we having Deputy Commissioner (Revenue) post filled and we are happy to convey that our revenue collection has by large increased not decreased.
3) Bills payment is a transparent administrative process and considering this factor I have introduced "First Come First Serve (FCFS)" basis for payment from 31st October.
4) I have made all possible best efforts to start Octroi Tax in Jalgaon City. The State departments having various conventions and routine task caused delays in sanctions and treatment me responsible for this is a topic of question mark.
5) Corporation has 4 places in mind for building up Shopping Complexes and out of these 4, one is reserved for Hospital and second for parking purposes. The third place is in Court case and until the Court verdict, we could not process. The last and fourth place is pending for Non-Agricultural Land permission and most of these complexes building up resolutions were cancelled in year 2002 itself. The only Shopping Complex resolution passed was in year 2005 was for Swami Vivekananda Shopping Complex.
6) I have not done any of the administrative tasks with Ruler aspect. I am here to serve and do best with common consensus and I have taken all my colleagues and employees views before finalizing even smaller or large tasks. The Administration should finalise its policy before calling Public Representatives meeting and we have made best of attempts to follow this. Even we found that the public representatives did not consider our views and aspects at many places.
7) None of my act of work is against public welfare and benefits. Hence all the termed No-confidence motion items are non-justifying and bear no grounds.
my joining, I have
1) Octroi Collection Started
2) Attempts to start City Bus Service
3) Satellite survey of city property
4) Roads development
5) Smoother Office Administration
6) Waste recycling plant
7) City Planning department - pending matters cleared
8) BOOT basis Toilets construction underway
9) Double Entry Accounting system effected since last 5 month

The increasing amount of Government formalities and taxation burden has thrown the business community in the anger. VAT Tax came forward as a simplifying means of taxation and eased trading line, but the Corporation Level Octroi tax is still here which is troubling local businesses a lot. The Octroi tax applicable to all Corporation Area cities is in major collected through private party contractors in whole State. The contractor having target achievement funda tries to pressurise the traders on various day to day issues on this account. Finally all the business associations in the state have come up with a strong bonded union to fight this tax and that too in times when State Budget is about to be announced.
Our Country's democratic ruling is in the State where "If you wish to implement something, you have to be a part of ruling party and/ or strong political figure or either you have to be Supreme Court". The widening gap of business process understanding between rulers and payers in long term would harness Visionary plans of E-Revolution and becoming World super power. Ruling Governments aught to understand the significance of majority Tax paying community and take them in confidence before implementing taxation. If we want to simplify all these means then we need to give representation to business associations in our Political systems. This will not only ease the communication gap but will also help ascertain the right path to reforms.
