Summary

Previous to the enactment of Act X of 1842 taxation had been imposed in the larger towns and by Regulation X of 1810 town duties which were of of the nature of an octroi and had been a source of revenue before the days of the British rule were reimposed in the city of Patna and in the towns of Purnea Bhagalpur Muzaffarpur Chapra Arrah and Gaya while a tax on houses and shops at the rate of 5 [...] This Reglation was amended by Act XV of 1837 which appears to be the first Act to recognise the necessity of sanitation in towns for by that Act it was declared lawful to appropriate a portion of the tax so levied to the purposes of cleaning and repairing the towns in which that tax is levied" while the maximum of the tax was raised to Rs. [...] Twenty years after the passing of the abortive Act of 1842 the publication of the Royal Army Sanitary Commission's report drew attention to the unhealthy condition of the towns and to the need for an improved form of municipal administration and led to the passing of Act III of 1864 (The District Municipal Improvement Act). [...] The Government of Bihar and Orissa soon after the constitution of the Province took up the revision of the Act and the bill prepared was ready for introduction in the Legislative Council when the Reforms scheme was announced. [...] The majority of the members will be members of the Legislative Council and the Board will be in fact a Committee of the Council to advise the Minister of Local Self-Goverment.
