  22. 22. CONCLUSION After all the analysis and studies of the AMC, we came to the conclusion that it is not perfect and matured. This is due to the fact that the AMC is too young in comparision with the other Municipalities in our neighbouring states, and we, the people are also donot aware about the roles and functions of the AMC. It is a note to keep that the AMC is yet to fulfill even its first term after it came into existence in Mizoram, even the first term is being proceeding and for the time being lots of plans and project are yet to be completed by it. In addition, there is insufficient availability of staffs and assistence in the Office. Actually, there is no assistence to the Councillors in privacy. Even if they need assistant they have to pay the burden for the service of their own assistence.
  23. 23. In oder to achieve the desire needs of the people, the Government should increase the AMC with regard to taxes and revenues. It is the need to vested the full fledge power in the hands of the AMC by the State Government if it is the need to achieve further more. Besides the Local Councils also have to keep good co-operationwith the AMC. Nevertheless, AMC is established for the welfare of the citizens and it is the duty of every citizen to co- operate with it in harmonise manner. Taking note that there is inevitable duties to be fulfilled for the success of the Aizawl Municipal Council. May AMC stays strong and fruitful in the future date…
