Shimla, Feb 10
In view of delimitation of Shimla MC wards the Deputy Commission, Shimla today issued a draft proposal for the same. In the same seven new wards have been proposed to be added. The exercise came in affect in light of general elections of SMC scheduled to be held in April this year. In notice issued Feb 10, the DC Shimla has invited suggestions and objection pertaining to draft delimitation proposal in a period of 7 days.
As per the proposal the total numbers of wards proposed for Shimla MC have been increased from 34 to 41. Among those wards broken up into two are Krishna Nagar, Khalini, Vikasnagar and Kasumpti. Herein as per the draft proposal they shall now be Lower KishnaNagar and Upper krishnaNagar. Khalini is proposed to be Lower Khalini and Upper Khalini. Similarly lower Vikas Nagar and Upper Vikasnagar and Kusumpti shall be Kasumpti –I and Kasumpti –II.
This will add four new wards to this tally. Further among the three new ones are Dingudhar, Brockhurst and Shankali.
Earlier this month a spokes person of the Election commission had informed that instructions have been given to Deputy Commissioner Shimla to prepare draft proposal for dividing the wards of MC Shimla by 10th February, 2022 and to also invite objections by residents of Shimla, after which the process has been initiated.https://himachalscape.com/preparations-for-delimitation-of-mc-shimla-wards-started/
