The Domkal Municipality has continued to serve the residents of Domkal in the district of Murshidabad covering more than 1.5 Lacs population. Even though it has done a commendable job in the past as a Gram Panchayat, there is a lot of scope for improvement and perfection to work as a newly constituted Municipality. It's time that we start dreaming big for the Domkal city. A city with Nawab’s history, heritage and lineage deserves to be rated as a world class city in terms of quality of life that it offers. We begin our humble journey with this ambitious, but achievable vision in mind.
In keeping with the growing needs of its burgeoning population and increasing expectations and aspirations of the citizens, the Domkal Municipality, in the recent years, has embarked on large scale development of its civic infrastructure as well as strengthening of its institutional capacity to serve its residents better. We have to consolidate the work that has to be completed in the area of water generation, solid waste disposal, roads infrastructure, management of parks, presentation/ augmentation of greenery in the Domkal area. We have a vision of the total green & clean Domkal Municipal area by 2020
We believe that the city of Domkal with its size, importance and complexity deserves a more empowered civic body with wider ambit of services, that can be made accountable for most of the civic services and amenities that citizens expect on their day to day life. Such strengthening of the elected local government would also be in line with the 74th Constitutional Amendment. We believe that the major development schemes started by the State Government under the leadership of our beloved Chief-Minister Mrs. Mamta Banerjee would surely be carried out with hand to hand implementation by the civic body like the universally acknowledged Scheme of “ Kanya Shree “ & SABALA, the “SabujSaathi” the “KhadyaSurakha” and many more.
We will continuously thrive to bring these programs and projects on track, align them with needs and expectations of the citizens and ensure that these are implemented in a time bound manner, thereby improving quality of life of the residents of Domkal by delivery of expected results.
We would also like to ensure that benefits of these projects and all other development initiatives to be taken up by us, reach all strata of the society and progresses made be inclusive and equitable. Hence, great emphasis will be put on social sector development& Poverty alleviation & Food Security Program. Emphasis would also be made to improve city's health and hygiene thorough focused initiatives in vector control and overall improvement in sanitation and cleanliness as we would like to see a Green & Clean Domkal Municipality in the near future.
We all know that the Murshidabad district is a well- known agricultural district in West Bengal and so our main aim is to improve the condition of the cultivators with an introduction to the modern technology in the field of cultivation & ensure the farmers security & their benefits. Our beloved Chief-Minister has recently announced that no farmer has to pay “Khazana” of the cultivated land. It is a vital milestone in the history of West Bengal. It will surely benefit the farmers & improve their livelihood. The scheme by the State Government to procure the Paddy by the farmers at a good rate by the Government is also a welcome step by the generous Chief-Minister whom we owe our gratitude best compliments.
Last but not the least our constant endeavor would be to ensure that this journey to prosperity and development should not put additional burden on the residents of Domkal. We will thrive to introduce a modern regime of simplified tax structure that will root out corruption and ensure better compliance.
We promise to offer a transparent and responsive civic administration, leveraging on the latest initiatives in IT and e-governance. We also promise that all our councilors and civic officials would be in constant contact with the residents, accessible and focused on providing better services to you.
Thus, we begin our journey with blessings of all the people of Domkal. I sincerely invite all of you to join hands with us and help us make this city a world class one. Without your active involvement and participation, such dream can never be fulfilled.
