Sri Amit Ray,

Chairman,  Hooghly Chinsurah Municipality

“ The Hooghly Chinsurah Municipality,established in the year 1865, is one of the oldest Urban Local Bodies of this state. It is a very old town with historical importance. This town is very close to the West Bank of the great river Ganga and it lies within the Kolkata Metropolitan Area (KMA).

 We intend to encourage setting up of hi-tech industries and other business enterprises considering public -private participation as well as maintaining the proper environment for the existing industries. 

To render better municipal services to the citizen we intend to strengthen our municipal institutional infrastructure increasing the skills of the employees through training and regular monitoring, setting up public grievance cell, making computerized office with on-line services. 

To achieve the above-mentioned goals we envisage making a complete plan with better transparency in all spheres of municipal services through the participation of all the Stakeholders in the locality. 

This is Hooghly-Chinsurah Municipality could be achieved through programmes and measures encompassing.

  • Alleviation of poverty.
  • Provision of safe drinking water supply.
  • Sewage disposal system and waste water treatment.
  • Improved Soild Waste Management System.
  • Modern improved infrastructure of roads lane and bye- lanes with adequate street lighting facilities both in slum level and intra-local municipal infrastructure level.
  • Improved social and economic infrastructure, like education, health, park and garden, market, public conveniences, resettlement and rehabilitation of potential evictees from informal settlement.

All the above would thus ensure that all our citizens lead better healthy lives with appropriate rights”.
