In a meeting held on Wednesday evening with vice chairman, ward commissioners and officials of DMB at the conference hall of deputy commissioner’s office, Jha has directed to sort out issues like distribution of labour and others related to transportation of waste to dumping zone within Thursday and start the process of cleaning the town before 6 am of Friday.

He also set 20 days timeline for DMB to start 100 per cent door to door collection of garbage on daily basis within municipal area.

On submission by DMB that a fund of Rs 13 lacs will be required to start the whole process of door to door garbage collection, the deputy commissioner instructed additional deputy commissioner, Dibrugarh cum DMB executive officer Ranjit Konwar to assess the manpower, vehicle and other machinery required for the job along with machineries and fund already available with DMB.

He also urged vice chairman to hold board meetings at the earliest, take measures to increase revenue collection and cancel trade licenses of business establishments whether small or big, who do not possess dustbins and are making the city dirty.
