am Last year unpaid sanitation workers resorted to spilling garbage on the streets Top News Salaries of approximately 45000 employees of the East and North Corporations have been delayed once again owing to the continuing financial difficulties of the two civic bodies Nearly 15000 employees of the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) comprising the top three categories — A B and C — have not received paychecks for the last two months In the North about 30000 employees under the three categories are yet to receive last month’s salary However the corporations have disbursed salaries of D category workers — safai karamcharis Last year the corporation had delayed salaries of sanitation workers multiple times because they were short of funds prompting them to go on strike The East Corporation runs a monthly salary bill of Rs 120 crore while an additional Rs 14 crore is spent on pensions The civic body has been clamouring for implementation of the Fourth Finance Commission report which brings to the corporation about Rs 1700 crore extra per year — its share of the state government’s tax collection The corporation’s financial troubles are rooted in the skewed distribution of assets and resources during the trifurcation of the unified Municipal Corporation of Delhi Officials said that during the time of trifurcation East was to receive priority funding in the ratio of 40:40:20 (East:North:South) but the move has not been actualised EDMC Commissioner Mohanjeet Singh told The Sunday Express that while the internal income of the corporation amounts to approximately Rs 65 crore “expenses outweigh the income by far” However with safai karamcharis being paid “up to date” Singh said a crisis like last year — when workers resorted to spilling garbage on the streets — has been averted “Most employees have been paid till April There is no delay in payments of D category workers” he said East Delhi mayor Nima Bhagat told The Sunday Express that only one (Shahdara South) of the two EDMC zones brings any revenue and that the civic body will not be able to sustain itself without the government’s cooperation Earlier this week North Delhi commissioner P K Gupta had also stated that the corporation needs finances over Rs 500 crore to sustain itself and carry out day-to-day operations For all the latest Delhi News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Rekha Saxena | Updated: July 28 2016 6:04 am Strengthen Centre-state relations by giving the Inter-State Council teeth Top News The eleventh meeting of the Inter-State Council (ISC) held on July 16 2016 after a gap of 10 years came as a bolt from the blue This delayed convening is surprising given Narendra Modi’s harping on the theme of “cooperative federalism” during the 2014 election campaign While convening the ISC meeting Modi described the forum as the most significant platform to strengthen Centre-state and inter-state relations and discuss policies A federal system needs interactions between the various levels of government namely the union state and local Therefore the need for an inter-governmental mechanism is obvious in this system The framers of early federal constitutions swayed by the classical notion of dual sovereignty did not visualise the need for inter-governmental forums However the architects of India’s Constitution saw the need for inter-governmental forums in the working of the federal system There was a consensus during the Constituent Assembly debates on establishing such a forum In spite of the legal status bestowed upon the ISC under Article 263 it was not set up until the Janata Dal-led National Front Government headed by VP Singh accepted the recommendation of the Sarkaria Commission and established the ISC by a presidential ordinance on May 28 1990 The establishment of the ISC was necessitated by the changes in the Indian party system and the institutional transformations associated with it This body was set up as an instrument for cooperation coordination and evolution of common policies Under Article 263 of the Constitution the ISC is mandated to ensure better Centre-state cooperation and resolve Centre-state or inter-state issues However it has been largely underutilised In its first meeting in October 1990 then PM VP Singh agreed to institutionalise the procedure for regular consultation between the states and the Centre The ISC had then proposed to meet thrice a year but in 26 years it has met only 11 times The reasons for this failure to emerge as an active inter-governmental forum can be discussed in terms of two phases First in the first four decades of the Indian federation during which the ISC was not formally set up the Congress was dominant at the national and state levels Therefore issues were discussed across the table at party forums During this phase the ISC was also sidelined because economic planning necessitated the creation of the National Development Council (NDC) which worked as a functional substitute for the Inter-State Council Second in the multi-party coalition phase since 1989 the importance of the ISC was further reduced as some state parties were represented in the federal coalition government at the Centre and the Union cabinet itself became a kind of inter-governmental forum The return of the single-party majority government at the Centre in 2014 has necessitated the strengthening of inter-governmental mechanisms for the harmonious working of the federal structure In this milieu there is a great need to empower institutions like ISC and make them more interactive inclusive transparent and accountable The ISC can work as an effective forum of cooperative federalism The ISC needs to be given all the powers contemplated in the Constitution Clause A of Article 263 which gave the council the power to investigate issues of inter-state conflict was dropped in the presidential ordinance establishing the ISC It should provide greater opportunities to civil society institutions and the corporate sector to make their representations Moreover the ISC and NITI Aayog should be merged into one constitutional forum to improve the institutional participation of state governments in inter-governmental affairs It will enhance the institutional status of the NITI Aayog by being attached to a constitutional body ie the ISC Further to make the ISC a truly federal rather than a central body its secretariat should be shifted from the Union Home Ministry to the Rajya Sabha secretariat so that it would be under the direction of a neutral federal functionary the vice-president of India rather than Union home minister The writer is professor at the department of political science University of Delhi For all the latest Opinion
