After the results of the municipal elections are declared on Tuesday, the three new corporations — South, North and East — will have to start their administration before April 30.

But preparations at the Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Civic Centre are yet to start with officials thus far being unable to come up with the list of employee distribution. Placement of furniture and computers at the designated floors has also not been done.

An MCD official said the swearing-in ceremony of the three Mayors will, however, take place at the Civic Centre. The chosen Mayors will then decide where the swearing-in of the councillors should be held.

The 28-storey structure will be headquarters of two municipalities — North and South Delhi Municipal Corporations. The East Delhi Municipal Corporation will have its headquarters in the Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development (DSIIDC) building in Patparganj.

"The offices are taking shape at a slow pace because the commissioners of the corporations are yet to be finalised," he said.

In an order, Additional Commissioner (Establishment), Janak Digal has reserved

17 floors for both the municipal bodies.

As per the plan, the ownership of the Civic Centre will remain with the North Delhi Municipal Corporation hence it will also have the administrative control over the building. South Delhi civic body will pay maintenance charges to its North Delhi counterpart.
