Reasons for restructuring the existing ALM structure  

From an involved Reader -- please respond.  

Need for restructuring the existing ALM structure:

 

1) Citizens residing in or using authorised structures and paying their taxes to the BMC are often dis-satisfied by the responsiveness of the BMC to their complaints and suggestions. Citizensí charters and a computerised complaint management system need to be backed up by organised structures within and outside the BMC to improve the delivery of citizensí services and responsiveness of the BMC.

 

2) Experiments tried out in the past such as ALMs and LACCs have yielded valuable experiences but have inherent limitations as the local citizens groups or ALMs are either individual volunteers or NGO representatives who are self-appointed or recognised by the BMC officials on the basis of some good work done by them in waste segregation and management.

 

3) For the purposes of achieving scale and providing a sustainable organisational structure for the involvement of local citizens groups in a) the enforcement of the Rules regarding the anti-littering, segregation of waste, etc and b) the overall cleanliness and upkeep of public spaces in the concerned localities.
