Move to involve citizens in the annual budget of the Pune Municipal Corporation for the year 2009-10

Each resident can suggests projects up to Rs 5 lakh:

Janwani, an NGO supported by Marhatta Chamber Of Commerce, Industries and Agriculture (MCCIA) and Centre for Environment Education (CEE) will soon organise a discussion on how people can get their ideas included in the annual budget of the Pune Municipal Corporation for the year 2009-10 though the participatory budget process.

This is the fourth consecutive year that the PMC will invite suggestions from people. The idea is based on the fact that a single corporator, who represents 15,000 residents may not be able to get the people's aspirations reflected in the budget.

The PMC has set projects worth Rs 25 lakh for each of the PMC's 144 wards to be implemented according to suggestions coming from residents in the area. Each resident can suggests projects up to Rs five lakh and once included, these projects will find a mention in the PMC budget.
