Chandigarh known as the City Beautiful recognized as one of the cleanest, greenest and safest cities in the country. Though the city is known to be very well-planned and well-maintained, the Administration continues to strive hard towards improving the infrastructure and management. During the financial year 2019-20 too, the UT Administration has undertaken numerous development projects for the welfare and facilitation of residents.
Among the steps undertaken, the Advisory Council was revamped to encourage the participation of various stakeholders in the decision making process in the governance of the city. Another important initiative undertaken was democratic decentralization as per time to time guidance of NITI Aayog in the shape of indicators under Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as well as under various schemes monitored by Prime Minister Office whereby the functioning of Health, Education, Infrastructure development, Smart City, Financial Inclusive, Digital transaction, Swachh Bharat Mission and computerization and the management of V3 roads, parks and gardens transferred to the Municipal Corporation. The glory of SukhnaLake was revived through a massive upgradation programme. Further, true to the vision of the city’s architect Le Courbusier, the UT Administration envisages to retain the basic architectural heritage of the city while addressing public needs within the city’s rapidly changing demographic profile.
