Mumbai, Jan 25 (UNI) The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has decided to give lap-tops to the elected Municipal councillors in order to make their work easier.

Speaking at a press conference here today Municipal chief Jairaj Phatak said that the councillors will be given the lap-tops after a tender for the same is floated and the lowest tender bid accepted.

''The lap-tops will be given to the councillors in the coming weeks, for a period of five years till their term lasts and will have to return it once it ends,'' Mr Phatak said.

Mr Phatak also announced that the central government has given more power to the assistant, deputy, joint and the Municipal commissioner's to conduct a random check in the diagnosis centres in the city, whom they suspect of conducting tests to determine the sex of the foetus. ''We welcome the governments decision as we have more power in this matter now,'' Mr Phatak stated.

Before the conference started, corporation officials enacted a street play on the diagnostic centres and demonstrated how the rule to follow the law for diagnostic centres is important for the society. '' A similar play will be enacted in all the 24 civic wards in the next couple of months,'' the civic chief said.

The corporation will also fill the vacancies in the reserved category in the various departments of the corporation after calling for applications from the candidates, Mr Phatak added.
