An Act to validate the constitution of an interim municipality for Ambernath municipal district and to make certain consequential provisions upon conversion of village panchayat into a municipality.

Whereas, by Government Notification, Local Self-Government and Public Health Department, No. DTM. 2553/A, dated the 6th May, 1959, issued under section 4 of the Bombay District Municipal Act, 1901 (Bombay III of 1901), the State Government declared the local area specified therein which was within the limits of certain village to be a permanent municipal district with effect from the 11th May, 1959 under the name of the municipal district of Ambernath;

And Whereas, relying on section 191-B of the said District Municipal Act as it stood before its amendment by Bombay Act VIII of 1959 (which came into force on the 13th March, 1959) the persons vacating office as members of the village panchayat constituted an interim municipality for the newly created municipal district with effect from the 11th May 1959, with the Sarpanch and Deputy Sarpanch of the panchayat as the President and Vice-President, respectively, of the municipality;

And Whereas, by Government Notification, Urban Development and Public Health Department, No. DTM. 2553-A, dated the 9th July, 1960, issued under section 191-B of the said District Municipal Act as amended by Bombay Act VIII of 1959, the State Government nominated the same members of the village panchayat as councillors, and the Sarpanch and Deputy Sarpanch thereof as the President and Vice-President, of the interim municipality, with retrospective effect from the 11th May, 1959 till the election was held and vested the assets, rights and liabilities of the village panchayat in the municipality with effect from the said date;

And Whereas, the general election was then held and the first general office upto and inclusive of the 18th March 1961;

And Whereas, the councillors of the interim municipality continued in office up the inclusive or the 18th March 1961 ;

And Whereas, doubts have arisen as to the validity of the constitution of the interim municipality and the continuance of appointments, notifications, taxes, rules, by-laws and other matters in force in the area; mainly on the ground that an order required by section 191-B of the said District Municipal Act as amended by Bombay Act VIII of 1959 was not issued by the State Government as soon as the local area was declared to be a municipal district ;

And Whereas, it is expedient to provided for the removal of such doubts and to validate the constitution of the interim municipality and the action taken and things done by that municipality and the action taken and things done by that municipality, and to provide for matters connected with the purposes aforesaid; It is hereby enacted in the Sixteenth Year of the Republic of India as follows :-
