A two-day special session of Delhi Assembly begins on Wednesday to facilitate the passage of a Bill to split the Municipal Corporation of Delhi, currently controlled by civic bodies, into three smaller civic bodies.

The government is confident of passage of the bill without any difficulty as opposition BJP has already indicated that it would not oppose trifurcating MCD although the party had been critical of the move.

"We are confident that all the legislators will support the bill as MCD is being split to improve civic services and bring accountability," said a senior Minister.

Accepting a long-standing demand of chief minister Sheila Dikshit, the home ministry had last week approved a proposal of Delhi government to trifurcate MCD ahead of civic polls in April next year.
