In Tamil Nadu, a new Municipal Corporation has been formed. Avadi, a Chennai suburb, has been announced as the fifteenth municipal corporation in the state.
An ordinance to this effect has been promulgated by the Governor, which will be replaced by a bill to be passed in the state Assembly later.
The ordinance says, growing population in Avadi, rising income levels and the increasing demand for more civic services necessitate the upgradation of the municipality into a corporation. (AIR NEWS)
