An agenda will be presented to the House for final approval in this regard. The meeting is scheduled for May 27.
“In this regard, it is stated that a number of Covid-19 cases were reported in the year 2020 and the city was under lockdown and the MCC was in financial crisis. Therefore, to reduce expenses, the matter was submitted to the MCC General House meeting held on 31.08.2020 to impose a 20% discount on POL/HSD on Official Staff Cars for Officers and other categories, with the exception of staff cars attached to firefighters”, specifies the agenda.
The agenda stated that now several villages have been incorporated into the jurisdiction of the MC and the pandemic is also under control.

Accordingly, the matter is subject to the review of the MCC General House,” it said.
