Keeping with its tradition of dedicated services to the community, NDMC during the past years has accepted the challenges of the changing times and has provided high-grade facilities in many spheres of urban life by establishing many prestigious institutions to render essential and standard services to the citizens. REVISED ESTIMATES 2002 - 2003 Receipts Against the projected receipts of Rs 862 crore, the likely receipts during the year were projected at Rs 881 crore. It has been possible to exceed the targets for revenue receipts due to concerted efforts for collection of electricity dues, licence fee and property tax, including arrears. Expenditure Against the estimated expenditure of Rs 861 crore, the revised expenditure was pegged at Rs 875 crore. The increase in expenditure notwithstanding, the year, ends with a surplus of Rs 6 crore, even after contribution to various reserve funds created by NDMC for replacement / renewal of assets as well as for servicing of pension payments. NDMC has been enjoying financial autonomy for a fairly long time, giving the body sufficient functional autonomy in discharging its responsibilities efficiently and effectively. But current trend of expenditure did not present a rosy picture. Nevertheless, the unfavorable trend had been reversed to a considerable extent due to effective roles played by Finance, Law Departments of NDMC. During the year, the increase in the electricity tariff with effect from 01.6.2001, in the wake of the Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission’s (DERC) order dated 23.5.2001, was successfully contested by Finance and Law Departments before the DERC / Delhi High Court. This resulted in retrospective reduction in tariff with effect from 1.6.2001, leading to an annual savings of about Rs 35 crore, besides recovery of excess payment of Rs 16.22 - 25 - Broad achievements of the Council during the year 2002-03 have been as under :

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
