INTRODUCTION -The Delhi Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Bill, 2022 was introduced in Lok Sabha. The Bill aims to unify the three municipal corporations of the national capital. Revolutionary Socialist Party (RSP), Congress, and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) opposed its introduction. The Delhi Municipal Corporation Amendment Bill, 2022, was presented in the Lok Sabha on Friday, BY NITYANAND RAI sparking harsh criticism from Opposition MPs. The bill proposes to merge the Capital's three municipal corporations and give the Centre full control of the civic body. The Bill, according to Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi, goes against the goal of "democratizing and decentralizing" the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) through its trifurcation 10 years ago. "After the unification of MCD, Delhi's problems would be solved.". After the session, Union Minister Meenakshi Lekhi said, "We would do the same in Delhi as we did in Jammu and Kashmir by abolishing Article 370." The MCD was divided into 3 bodies in 2012: the municipal corporations of North Delhi, South Delhi, and East Delhi. Manish Tewari, M.P. claimed that the Parliament lacked the legal authority to bring the three municipal authorities in the Capital together. He stated that the Delhi Assembly has the authority to do so."State governments have the right to form municipalities under Articles 243P and 243R of the Constitution of India, which took effect on June 1, 1993, after Part 9A was added into the Constitution of India. Second, according to Article 246 read with the Seventh Schedule, entry 5 of the State List, the states have the authority to form municipal corporations," he explained. The Delhi Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Bill, 2022, introduced by Union Minister of State for Home Nityanand Rai, refuted opposition arguments by saying that Article 239AA of the Constitution granted Parliament the power to amend laws passed by the Delhi Legislative council. The Union Cabinet passed the amendment bill on Tuesday, which specifies that the term "Central Government" shall supplant "Government" in at least 11 sections of The Delhi Municipal Corporation Act, 1957. It further proposed that a Special Officer will be appointed to lead the corporation until delegates from a unified MCD are chosen. Many regard this as the Centre gaining a foothold in the country until elections are held. The move has been described as "disruptive" by one of the opposition parties' leaders like Gaurav Gogoi and Manish Tiwari who say Parliament lacks the competence to amend the bill. “This is disrupting the legislative assembly and the desire of the individuals of the legislative assembly. They have enacted an Act that enforced the trifurcation of the Municipal Corporationimproved governance, and more efficient delivery of civic service for the people of Delhi.
