There are good examples for this in state, which I dont want to mention for city war!.
It all comes to budget size...Which is basically how much revenue a municipal body collects in terms of tax and other misc revenues.. for smaller municipalities, they have revenue collection from area of 20 to 30sqkms...But if you see corporations, their area is 75 to 100sqkm..So they manage to collect significantly higher tax than when they were municipalities....In case of my town, all showrooms, major shopping complexes, hospitals, factories lies outside the municipal boundary limit..These depend on the town population for their revenue but pay no tax to the municipality.

Some Municipal Corporations have larger size - 500-2000 sq.km. Example, Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Chennai, Vishakapattanam, etc.

Yes it is true,.. But we don't have a corporation or UA which can be comparable to delhi, mumbai, banglore, chennai etc...

നമ്മുടെ നാട്ടിലെ മുനിസിപ്പൽ കോര്പറേഷനുകളുടെ വലുപ്പവും ജനസംഖ്യയും താരതമേന്യ delhi, Mumbai, Chennai,Bangalore പോലുള്ള metropolitian സിറ്റികളുമായി വെച്ചുനോക്കിയാൽ മൂന്നിൽ ഒന്ന് പോലും ഉണ്ടാകില്ല......

മറ്റു സംസ്ഥാങ്ങളിൽ പൊതുവെ കണ്ടുവരുന്ന ഒരു പ്രവണത ആണ് ഏതെങ്കിലും ഒരു നഗരത്തെ concentrate ചെയ്തരിക്കും ആ areayile വികസനം...... അതാണ് Bangalore, Chennai polulla നഗരങ്ങൾ വളരെ വേഗം വളരാൻ ഉണ്ടായ ഒരു കാര്യം....... പിന്നെ അതിനു വേണ്ട സപ്പോർട്ട് അവിടുത്തെ ഗവണ്മെന്റ് കൊടുത്തു....
Chennai Metropolitian Area എന്ന് പറയുന്നത് 3 ജില്ലകളിൽ (Chennai,Thiruvallur,Kancheepuram) വ്യാപിച്ചു കിടക്കുന്നതാണ്..... ഏകദേശം 1 കോടിയോളം ഉണ്ട് ഈ മേഖലയിലെ ജനസംഖ്യ..... ഇന്ന് Thiruvallur, Kancheepuram ജില്ലകളുടെ നല്ലൊരു ഭാഗവും ചെന്നൈ thanne ആണ് ennu parayam........ചെന്നൈയിലെ പല പ്രമുഖ IT companies, Car Factories, Educational Institutions എല്ലാം തന്നെ ഇന്ന് ee മേഖലകളിൽ ആണ്.......

ഒരുപക്ഷെ നമ്മുടെ നാട്ടിലെ പല പ്രമുഖ നഗരങ്ങളുടെയും വളർച്ചയെ സ്വാധീനിച്ചിട്ടുള്ള ചില രാഷ്ട്രിയ ഇടപെടലുകൾ oke ഉണ്ടാവാം.....

പ്രധാനമായും ചില ജില്ലാ രൂപീകരണങ്ങൾ ചില പ്രദേശങ്ങളുടെ വളർച്ചയെ ബാധിച്ചിട്ടുണ്ട് എന്ന് തന്നെ വേണം പറയാൻ .......
ഒരു വലിയ ഉദാഹരണം ഉള്ളത്.... മധ്യ തിരുവിതാംകൂർ മേഖലയിലെ 3 നഗരങ്ങൾ....
17 കിലോമീറ്ററിൽ 3 നഗരങ്ങൾ Changanasserry, Thiruvalla, Chengannur ഇന്ന് സ്ഥിതി ചെയ്യുന്നത് 3 ജില്ലകളിലായിട്ടാണ്......

അതേപോലെ തന്നെ കൊച്ചിയുടെ വികസനം pothuve vadakan മേഖലകളിലോട്ടു ആണ്.......
തെക്കു സ്ഥിതി ചെയ്യുന്ന സ്ഥലങ്ങൾ ആയ അരൂർ, തുറവൂർ, ചേർത്തല തുടങ്ങിയ പ്രദേശങ്ങൾ ഒരുപക്ഷെ എറണാകുളം ജില്ലയുടെ ഭാഗമരുന്നെങ്കിൽ കൊച്ചി Metropolitian city കളുടെ പട്ടികയിൽ എത്തിയേനേം....

മറ്റു സംസ്ഥാനങ്ങളിലെ നഗരങ്ങളിൽ മാത്രം ലഭിച്ചുകൊണ്ടിരുന്ന സൗകര്യങ്ങൾ നമ്മുടെ ഈ കൊച്ചു കേരളത്തിലെ ഓരോ ഗ്രാമങ്ങളിലും ഇപ്പോൾ ലഭ്യമാണെന്ന് ഓർക്കണം..

( ഇതെന്റെ ഒരു അഭിപ്രായം. )

Good to see all those faces along with the tail end figures. That some how make them accountable for not doing their job properly. Though they are all thick skinned people.

They knows that nobody will ask them about the fund utilisation. They are in a position where they can choose their own way of fund utilisation.

What difference does it makes if Corporations' Moothrapura" is as filthy as Muncipalitys' "Moothrappura"' ? All these governing bodies are for the better management & welfare of the people & not for Meniparachil .

I agree that corporations do get a lot of fund but are they properly managed or at least well off than Muncipality in Kerala .

I am willing to wait for a smart city any number of years. Or a bullet train or a hyper loop. I shall even forget the fund allocation. I am not bothered whether my place is an ordinary Panchayat, a Mucicipal council or a Municipal corporation. I am not eager to see my place grow in to a megacity. I care two hoots about any other hoopla that is written in the pages of urbanization. But I can't wait for one thing.

This is a simple thing any Municipal ward can do without any fund allocation. It needs no technology transfer. I am talking about a few garbage bins in our cities and villages.

Yesterday I went to 'Payyambalam' beach of Kannur after a long time. I was saddened. The entrie beach is a litter ground. Ice cream packets, plastic bags, beer bottles, discarded chappals, mineral water bottles and piles of paper scattered all over the beach. I tried to locate a Garbage bin to deposit the wrapper of a chocolate bought by me for my grand daughter. I could not find any. Temporarily I kept it in my pocket.

I do not know what prevents our civic authorities from placing garbage bins at regular intervals and empty it daily. It does not cost a sky. A few lakhs in small municipalities and a few crores in Big cities are sufficient for it. You need not wait for any fund allocation. It does not need any technology even. Auction the clearance of these bins to somebody for a small price. Many immigrant labour force will come forward to take this contract. Unlike our own Municipal employees, they will do it efficiently. If they do not, their contract can be cancelled and given to somebody else. You cannot suspend the Municipal employee if he does not do his duty.

The second thing I would like to see in my city is sufficient public toilets, well maintained, to relieve ourselves. Today people are forced to walk all the way to a Railway station or a Bus station. I am not talking about moneyed class who visit a mall or a multiplex for their daily needs, but about common citizens. These facilities can be properly maintained again by the help of migrants. They would be only happy to under take it, if they are allowed to collect Rs.2/- per user. I have seen many well maintained public toilets in many parts of India run successfully by the NGO. 'Sulabh Shouchalay'. Why don't our civic bodies entrust them this job, which they are doing freely. Only things our civic bodies need to provide them are the space and water connection to them?

We can talk about other fancy things later. Unfortunately nobody is interested here. Everybody is after a twenty floor residential tower, which they consider a great achievement of their city.
