New Delhi: New Delhi Municipal Council will provide coaching in Wrestling alongwith few other sports. This was announced after the NDMC Budget 2024-25 presentation in its Special Council Meeting presided over by Shri Amit Yadav, Chairman NDMC.

Shri Yadav, while addressing the media, said “NDMC will provide coaching in 12 sports disciplines and Wrestling has  been also included.” He also said that  “Sound and light system of Talkatora Indoor stadium will also be improved.”

 “This year was a milestone for NDMC as we had to prepare New Delhi for hosting the G-20 summit, under the leadership of our beloved Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. NDMC devoted itself to ensuring the success of this significant event and took numerous initiatives to prepare the city to welcome our guests from across the world. Through the concerted efforts of team NDMC we not only met but exceeded the expectations. “

Shri Yadav said,  ” In our budget for 2024-25, total expenditure is more than our RE figures for the current year and the receipts are higher than that of RE leading us with a surplus, a trend maintained by NDMC for the last number of years. Higher revenue expenditure for RE 2023-24 is on account of increased power purchase prices and payment of salary to the newly appointed 4,400 PalikaSahayaks. The increase in receipts is the result of our efforts in collection of property tax and estate dues. We expect the expenditure to further increase in FY 2024-25 on account of disbursement of arrear of salary/pension and other retirement benefits on implementation of 7th CPC in NDMC.”

As part of our ongoing commitment to Employee Welfare, NDMC by exercising powers conferred to it under the NDMC Act took decision to regularize 4,400 RMR workers after obtaining approval from the Central Government to formalize the process.
