The government will clip local self-government secretary’s powers: Pinarayi Vijayan
By Indian Express 14-Oct-2019
“The Municipalities Act and the Panchayat Raj Act give vast powers to the secretary. The council lacks the power to make decisions or hear appeals. A review petition against the secretary’s decision can be filed only at the LSG Tribunal in Thiruvananthapuram,” he said.
The government will take steps to establish tribunals in Kochi and Kozhikode to reduce the average time for disposing of the appeals from the current 6-12 months to one month. At present, the secretary is the final authority to make decisions on building permit applications and can even overrule the recommendation of the LSG engineer, Pinarayi said.
