Apart from this the facility for on-line water tax submission is also not available in Dharamshala Municipal Committee he added.

The updated accounting system has not been incorporated into the financial management of Dharamshala Municipal Committee and despite that Sudhir Sharma the Urban Minister has misused his position to cook fake information to get the smart city status for Dharamshala, which is a violation of the duties and fostering of regionalism.
