Referring to the Second Administrative Commission report, in which intensive research was done on Urban Governance, the Lt Governor observed that the report suggested that by 2026, level of Urbanization will significantly increase and we can witness that phenomenon today.
Keeping this in view; Lt Governor suggested that the officers visit different municipal areas and collect information and data for reform-linked investments that would help in region-wise long term planning.
