The Aam Aadmi Party took on the MCD soon after its merger, saying it has repeatedly failed to pay salaries to its employees.

The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has released one month’s salary and pension to all its employees and pensioners.

“The MCD has released one month’s salary to its employees. Additionally, the civic agency has also released one month’s pension to its pensioners. The corporation has made a fund of Rs 432.84 crore available for this purpose,” said a senior MCD official.

The salary of around three months was due to the employees of the civic body. Despite financial constraints, the corporation aims to release the outstanding salaries and pension, the official said.

The unified MCD formally came into existence on Sunday, with IAS officers Ashwani Kumar and Gyanesh Bharti assuming charge as the new civic body’s special officer and commissioner, respectively.
