The new Bidhannagar Municipal Corporation (BMC) will now have a logo of its own, designed and approved by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
Mamata has earlier designed logos for various government schemes and concepts like ‘Biswa Bangla’ and ‘Kanyashree’, which are now widely used.
BMC mayor Sabyasachi Dutta said the corporation needed a logo of its own for identification. “The civic body did not have a logo till now. The name of the civic body is now officially Bidhannagar Municipal Corporation,” added Dutta. According to BMC, the logo, which is blue in colour with a tinge of yellow, was finalised on Monday.
The corporation authorities have already carved the mayor’s letterhead with the new logo at the top. The name ‘Bidhannagar Municipal Corporation’ will be written in blue colour.
The letterheads of the corporation top brass, including the commissioner, chairperson, deputy mayor and the seven mayor-in-council members, will also use the new logo.
