It seems that the East Municipal Corporation of New Delhi needs a pied piper as the civic body struggles with an overabundance of rats. The condition is so worse that the senior officials have set up traps inside their headquarters.

These rats not only eat the remnants of daily snacks and lunches but also nibble at important documents.

One of the officials said that the creatures had gnawed off the bottom of the document that had the signature of the approving authority and he had to get those papers re-signed to make a payment to a vendor, as reported by The Times of India.

The peons of the office have been instructed to keep important documents in metal almirahs.

As per the EDMC spokesperson Yogendra Singh Maan, no major destruction of records by rats has been reported. Few clerks recalled how the Commissioner once had brought all the work to a halt last year after a foul smell from somewhere in the false ceiling in his chamber. When the staff could not ascertain the offending carcases, they called experts from North and South Corporations to guide the sweepers to find the dead rat.

The rat traps put up by officials were procured for use during the 2010 Commonwealth Games. The officials hope that the rats are eliminated soon.


Such an environment at the Municipal offices does not inspire confidence in the minds of the people. How can people expect the authorities to help solve the problems of the city when they are not able to solve their own problems?
