Mumbai’s female corporators seem to be more efficient than their male counterparts.
This is the finding of a recent survey conducted by the Praja foundation that rated corporators on the basis of the number of issues raised, attendance at general body and civic committee meetings, education and criminal records.
Nearly two-thirds of women corporators (27 of 89), scored more than 70%. Only 15 male corporators out of 135 got the same score.
Besides looking at official records to ascertain each corporator’s performance, as part of the survey, 28,000 people from different wards were also interviewed about the perception they had of their corporator’s honesty and efficiency.
