restricted to in making of the rules and to provide for carrying out the
purposes of the Ordinance. Under the provisions of the Ordinance, it is the
Corporation, composed of its elected Mayor and Commissioners, would perform the
functions of the Corporation in its overall interest and not the Government in
the garb of providing ‘general guidance’ and is neither entitled to interfere
in the day to day administration or various other functions of the Corporation
nor in the functions of its Commissioners. The functions of the Government in
this regard is restricted to overseer and see that the Corporation functions

guard not to over-step its jurisdictional limits and invade into the functions
of the Corporation.
