Sub. :  Draft Governance Legislation for Bengaluru City

On behalf of Mr. Rajeev Chandrasekhar, MP and Convener – ABIDe Task Force, I am enclosing herewith the proposed draft legislation for Bengaluru City, tentatively titled Bengaluru Region Governance Act, 2009, which is undergoing public consultation currently.  This is intended to supersede the current KMC Act 1976.

The principles used for drafting the act are citizen centricness, enhanced responsiveness, accountability, transparency and institutionalized citizen and neighborhood involvement in the city’s development.

We would be glad to receive your views / comments on the same, if any.

We also request you to widely circulate this document amongst your friends and colleagues in order to ensure greater visibility / awareness and wider feedback.
