Business Engagement in City Services
One of the models that emerged out of previous discussions is engaging corporates and small businesses/entrepreneurs in the city.
The idea being that of formation of Advisory Councils for local government bodies like Police, Municipal Services, Power Corporation and engaging the participation of businesses paying taxes through these councils.
Kindly share your inputs on how such a model can effectively work. We can then take the recommendations to states via a body like Niti Aayog and request them to pilot in a few cities in India.
If there are case studies of such a model working already in some cities, do share that with the circle.
We look forward to your inputs! more
