      reg. directly elected mayor.

      this was tried during shivsena regime some times in 1999-2000. it
      was abandoned as unworkable.

      with several authorities working simultaneously, like airport
      authority, port authority, railways, ONGC, defence establishments
      besides MMRDA, MUTP, MUIP etc, a directly elected all powerful
      mayor may become toothless tiger.

      citizens charter, signing of joint MOUs between corporators, ward
      administration and area NGO councils with refinement for
      devolution of power to the citizens may be some progress towards
      fulfilment of central idea behind 74th amemndment. this could be a
      begining.

      8000 reps will mean 50000 candidates from various party ticket
      holders and independents. money will burn and finally powerless
      area reps may end up becoming brokers and corruption will
      increase.

      recalling powerless area rep will serve no purpose. in gramsabha,
      power to dismiss sarpanch, upsarpanch and instituting disciplinary
      action against gramsewak rests with divisional commissioner based
      on enquiry report conducted by CEO upon written complaint from 20% gramsabha members to the effect that the panchayat have spent
      money without taking sanction from gramsabha.
