Double Minded Corporation, Community Centers at StakeAmongst various developmental works enlisted for Udaipur Municipal Corporation (UMC) one is construction and development of Community Centers around town, however the double minded UMC on one hand claims that these centers are incurring losses for department, whereas on other hand is initiating construction of new such centers around town; while regular maintenance and care-taking of available centers is still a big question mark.

According to an official source, there are around 56 community centers in various parts of city, but the corporation has officially rented only 20 such centers, the rest are being occupied either by residents of respective colonies/localities or has been considered as private property of influential people.

Sources further added that several complaints have been put forward to the Mayor and other officials of the corporation notifying prevailing maintenance issues, however instead of taking action in favor, the people in power harshly replied the complainers that community centers are giving big losses to corporation.

Ironically, on inauguration of construction of an additional hall and toilet block at Swarn Jayanti Park in Goverdhan Villas, Mayor Rajni Dangi claimed that the construction of community hall will surely give new heights to facilities being provided by the UMC.

From the information collected from other departments of UMC, in past 4 years corporation did not even care to appoint guards or watchmen for its community centers, as a result the facility is misused by anti-social elements for illegal activities.
