The newly-formed Gandhinagar Municipal Corporation (GMC) has started the process to form its administrative setup with the help of other civic bodies in the state.
It has started picking key officials from all possible quarters,and a beginning has been made with the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) sending on deputation its senior assistant auditor Vikram Patel to GMC as chief auditor.
The civic standing committee on Thursday passed a proposal,which says Patel will be sent to GMC on deputation following a communication from the Urban Development Department.
GMC commissioner R C Kharsan said he had sought key personnel like chief auditor and municipal secretary for posting in the GMC.
This is part of that request. We have also got a retired official who will work as the municipal secretary. For this,a former official of the Vadodara Municipal Corporation,Pinakin Joshi,has been selected, Kharsan said.
