Kharagpur Municipality is a sparkling speck in the vast expense of Paschim Medinipur. It is a great honour and pleasure for me to be a part of this glorious municipality which has stepped into its 63rd year of establishment.
This website is dedicated to the citizens and interested persons who could get access to various information on development works achieved and future programmes with a mellifluous vision. The present urban scenario of municipality prompts us to ensure Sanitation, Roads, Electricity, Pure Water Supply, better Drainage System comprising ideal environment for maximum benefit of all citizens.
We also give equal importance to e-governance. It is true that we have many miles to go. Slowly but steadily we are destined for the visions that have long been cherished. We have already computerized the Departments like - Trade License, Birth & Death. Again Computerization in Assessment, Mutation and sanction of Building plans have been taken up.
Responding to the call of government we already have introduced AMRUT (Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation), NULM (National Urban Livelihood Mission), SBM (Swachh Bharat Mission), NUHM (National Urban Health Mission) & PMAY (Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana) in our municipality to make overall development. Through AMRUT Projects, we are making infrastructural development of those wards where it lacks. Through NULM, we are making means of earning bread for those who are far the downtrodden section of the society. Through Swachh Bharat Mission we are going to make total clean society step by step.
In view of the aforesaid status of the City, I would like to propose that for amusement and mental development of the children and to create a beautiful spot of Tourism and other amenities like SWIMMING POOL, CHILDREN'S PARK, STADIUM etc. at a pollution free zone at Kharagpur so that the children of this city will be encouraged on seeing the proposed Children's Park & Swimming Pool etc.
We are working with a VISION for the Year 2025.
