On Monday, leader of the MCD House Subhash Arya and chairman of the Standing Committee Yogender Chandolia for the first time worked from the newly built Civic Centre. This, despite the centre not getting a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the fire department.
The first six floors of the 28-storey building are yet to receive fire clearance. Due to this, political representatives, most of who will be sitting on those floors, had not shifted to the new building.
This delay had led to a lot of inconvenience to the common public who had to continuously juggle between the Civic Centre on Minto Road and the Town Hall in Chandni Chowk.
While the departments had shifted to the new Civic Centre, political representatives of the MCD were still working out of the Town Hall.
This had led to the Standing Committee chairman deciding to shift permanently to the new address from this week.
"The Standing Committee meeting hall is yet to be ready. So we may have to keep going to Town Hall for weekly meetings, but next week I will be shifting to Civic Centre," Chandolia had said.
