It was great to witness how SDMC Commissioner, Gyanesh Bharti has been taking up new initiatives & practices to lead in Swachhata efforts. Machineries inducted will be deployed in inaccessible areas & will help in cleaning of silted drainage which was otherwise a difficult task.
These will add to effectiveness in Swachhata activities & water sprinkling for making Delhi clean & pollution free.
My Ministry has provided an amount of ₹12.64 cr from Urban Development Fund (UDF) for these vehicles for attending to Swachh Bharat Mission.
Mitigating pollution & providing effective cleaning had been the priority for all municipal corporations & ULBs in Delhi.
I was delighted to flag off 6 mechanical road sweepers, 17 tractors with water tankers, 2 super sucker machines & 26 CNG powered trucks for the SDMC areas.

1731 कच्ची कॉलिनियों के नक्शे दिल्ली सरकार को बनाने थे। जब वो ऐसा नहीं कर पाए तो ये काम डीडीए को सौंपा गया।
अब 1100 कॉलिनियों के नक्शे तैयार हैं। 500 नक्शे RWAs के सुझावों के लिए पोर्टल पर अपलोड कर दिए गए हैं। बाक़ी नक्शे कुछ ही दिनों में अपलोड कर दिए जाएंगे।
Mapping of 1731unauthorised colonies was to be done by Delhi Govt. When they could not do it the job was entrusted to DDA. Mapping is complete for 1100 colonies.500 have already been uploaded on portal for suggestions from RWAs. Remaining will be uploaded within a matter of days.
Today we are in the middle of an unprecedented planned urbanisation drive anchored in my ministry. One can see the transformation in our urban spaces. In Delhi alone, where I now live, the results of robust urban infrastructure including mobility is spectacular.
