The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has decided to pull up its legal department.
On Wednesday, the Standing Committee of the civic agency, alleging rampant irregularities in MCD’s law department, sought a detailed report of number of cases pertaining to the civic bodies pending in various courts and tribunals.

Standing Committee chairman Yogender Chandolia asked commissioner KS Mehra to give the report on November 10.

“The commissioner has been asked to submit a report informing how many cases belonging to various departments pending in courts and the names of lawyers handling them,” said Chandolia. The MCD has a whole entourage of lawyers whose total monthly salary comes to nearly R1.25 crore.
