Former Mayor, Ms Nanda Jichkar said innovation is must if one wants to achieve progress in life. She was speaking at opening ceremony of the “Giving Economy Changemakers Summit 2019” organised by VIA Entrepreneurship Forum and Crowdera. She said that one should innovate and help the civic body develop city’s infrastructure. “We all need good roads, gardens and other amenities for which all citizens should contribute.” She further justified the recent hike in municipal taxes and said that the people of Nagpur city had accepted the revised taxes. “However in other municipal bodies like Nashik Municipal Corporation, the authorities had to role back the decision to increase the taxes.”
Earlier Mr Chet Jainn, Founder and CEO of Crowdera, said that the ‘act of giving’ creates more abundance in your life. “Good people donate wealth but their personal wealth keeps on growing. There is logic behind it,” he highlighting giving back to the society is must.
