On Monday, the BJP-led Municipal Board of Dibrugarh (DMB), which faced a sample of financial irregularities claims, was disbanded.
The civic body was dissolved with immediate effect by a notification (vide No. UDD(M)/15 1/2009/358) released by the Assam government's main secretary to the Department of Urban Development (UDD) on Monday.
The step was taken after Dibrugarh's deputy commissioner's inquiry and Assam's municipal administration director's report on allegations against the DMB.
There are allegations of financial misappropriation, unsuitable management of DMB's main cash book and logbooks for office vehicles, and unsuitable records of DMB property.
There are also allegations of irregularities in renting out public parking spaces and advertisement and business distribution, parking and hoarding through the system of unlawful tendering.
