Reportedly, the administration has formed ward-level disaster management committees at all Nagar Panchayats and regional units under IMC. Besides managing the disbursement of medicines and accelerating the inoculation drives, the officials at these bodies will also acquaint the district disaster management team about the actual situation from time to time.
Being one of the most proactive civic bodies, the Indore Municipal Corporation has undertaken a list of projects to block the chain of infections. Through regular monitoring of vulnerable areas and focused sanitisation drives, the organisation has made sure that it deploys all possible steps for controlling the contagion. With the establishment of localised ward rooms, the responsibilities will be divided leading to a better enforcement of all the needed actions.
Indore, the most affected city in Madhya Pradesh
