New Delhi: 1ST OCTOBER 2022-The Delhi Government is working on a mission mode to ensure complete the cleaning of Yamuna by 2025, provide 24*7 clean water to every household and connect the houses of all unauthorized colonies with sewer lines. In this direction, Deputy Chief Minister Shri Manish Sisodia gave approval to various projects of the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) including free sewer connections to houses in various localities across Delhi, replacement of old pipelines with new ones, groundwater recharge through lakes and increasing the capacity of STPs. Completion of these projects will help in meeting the target of cleaning the Yamuna by 2025 and provide a relief to lakhs of people of Delhi from sewerage problem.
Speaking about the projects, Shri Manish Sisodia said, “The Kejriwal government is committed to ensuring a better sewerage system and 24-hour clean water supply to every citizen of Delhi. Work is being done on a mission mode in this direction and in a phased manner. New water pipelines, laying of sewer lines and providing door-to-door sewer connections in various areas of Delhi are a few important steps taken by the government. Apart from this, it is necessary to expand modern sewer lines and connect sewer to homes for better sanitation, to improve public health, to clean the Yamuna and to improve the environment.”
*64 colonies and 10 villages to be attached with the sewer system
Delhi Government will construct a chamber to connect Sant Nagar GOC, Singhu GOC, Shahbad GOC, Pradhan Enclave GOC and Kureni GOC with house sewer connections. 64 colonies and 10 villages will be attached with the sewer system in the aforementioned areas. Presently, the work of laying sewer connections by the Delhi Jal Board, from manholes to households is in progress. This did not include the construction of the chamber and the connection with the individual houses earlier. Delhi Jal Board has decided that the department carrying out the construction work in the areas or colonies which have not been notified for taking sewer connection and the areas or colonies which have not been handed over to the maintenance division, shall have domestic sewer connection up to the premises of the consumer. So that the consumer does not have to apply for permission to cut the road from the road ownership agencies. Along with this, 6 inch SW / DWC pipe will be laid up to the edge of the building line to give house connection in all the ongoing construction works. In such a situation, the construction of brick manholes will not be mandatory. Chambers will be constructed in these colonies and rural areas by the Delhi Jal Board which will connect the sewer connection from the manhole to the premises of the consumers.
Deputy Chief Minister Shri Manish Sisodia said, “The main objective of the Delhi government is to clean the Yamuna on a priority basis. Better sewerage management in unauthorized colonies and villages is an important step to ensure this. Earlier it was very expensive to get sewer connections because people had to pay development, connection and road cutting charges. But the Kejriwal government is providing it free of cost. This will benefit lakhs of consumers across the capital.”
*Sewer Connection pipe in Karawal Nagar and Mustafabad will be connected to the households
The house service connection pipeline already laid by DJB in Karawal Nagar and Mustafabad constituencies will be connected to individual households in the area. This includes Chandu Nagar, Moonga Nagar, Rajiv Gandhi Nagar (New Mustafabad), Nehru Vihar, Old Mustafabad Gali No. 1 to 9, Mustafabad Extension Gali No. 10 to 27, Dayalpur Extension A, B, D, E, F Block and surroundings. (New Chauhanpur Village), Khajuri Khas Village LOP and Khajuri Khas A-D Block, Khajuri Khas Extension E Block, Khajuri Khas Extension E Block (LOP), Khajuri Khas F-Block and Chandbagh, etc. Here the individual house sewer service connection will be connected to the sewer manhole of the Delhi Jal Board. The work of providing and laying house service sewer connections is already in progress in these colonies.
*Old pipelines from Alipore Guest House to Sanjay Gandhi Transport to be replaced with new ones
Deputy Chief Minister Shri Manish Sisodia informed that the old PSC pipeline from Alipore Guest House to Sanjay Gandhi Transport Nagar (UGR) will be replaced with the new MS pipeline. This will stop the wastage of water and maximum water can be supplied from the groundwater. Presently water is being supplied from Alipur Guest House to Sanjay Gandhi Transport Nagar (UGR) through the PSC pipeline. This pipeline is very old and due to frequent leakages, the maintenance wing has to face a lot of difficulties and a large quantity of drinkable water is wasted. There are electric cables and gas pipelines etc. on top of this pipeline and because of this, it is difficult to repair leakages. Hence the Kejriwal government has decided to replace the main pipeline in the said area.
*Capacity of Rohini Lake 1 and 2 will be increased
The construction work of Lake No.-1 in Rohini Sector-25 is currently in process. Spread over 10 acres, the lake has a capacity of 7.5 MG and its depth is 1.5 meters below the present ground level. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had suggested during the on-site inspection to increase the capacity in view of the inadequate capacity of the lake. In such a situation, now this lake will be deepened about 6 meters below the current ground level. This will help recharge as much groundwater as possible. Apart from this, the total capacity of another lake will be increased from 7.5 MG capacity to 15 MG. It is to be noted that an RO plant of 20 MGD capacity will be set up at Rohini STP, considering the 30 percent wastage, at least 26 MGD water is required. To meet this demand, water will be supplied through tube wells around Rohini STP including proposed lakes. With this, the capacity of both lakes will be 15-15 MG.
*Kejriwal government will conduct a study to assess groundwater floor in the newly constructed lakes*
Deputy Chief Minister Shri Manish Sisodia said that the Kejriwal government is working on a war footing to turn the dream of making Delhi a 'city of lakes', into reality. In this direction, Delhi Jal Board has constructed various artificial lakes in Delhi to recharge groundwater. These include Pappankalan Lake, Dwarka Lake, Najafgarh Lake, Nilothi Lake, Rohini Sector-25 Lake, Timarpur, Iradat Nagar Lake, Roshanara Lake (Old Dry Lake), Okhla STP, etc. Through these lakes, maximum underground water can be recharged in cost-effective ways to maintain the ecological system. The special thing is that on behalf of the Delhi Jal Board, groundwater flow modeling and other studies will be conducted on the newly created lakes. The main objective of these studies is to find out the direction of water flow, flow velocity, the effect of pumping well and gradient receptors in it. So that maximum groundwater can be recharged. The groundwater will be extracted by boring tube wells near these lakes. The extracted groundwater will be treated in an RO plant to make it potable.
*STP capacity will increase to make Yamuna pollution free*
Deputy Chief Minister Shri Manish Sisodia informed that the capacity of Keshopur Phase-I STP will be increased from 12 MGD to 18 MGD. He added that the Kejriwal government is increasing the capacity of various Waste Water Treatment Plants in Delhi which will treat the dirty water and clean the Yamuna. Many STPs have been built with the latest technology with waste effluent standards of TSS-10 mg/Litre, which can remove nitrogen, and phosphorus as well as kill pests.'

*Online monitoring system will capture the status of DUSIB’s vacant lands and building assets with comprehensive details like geo coordinates, photographs, reports on illegal occupancy, etc; this will help the government in taking swift action against encroachers- Dy CM Manish Sisodia
*Delhi Government is ensuring a better quality of life for everyone in slums and JJ clusters through DUSIB; Online monitoring of government lands of DUSIB is also an important step in the same direction- Dy CM Manish Sisodia
NEW DELHI: 1ST OCTOBER 2022-The Delhi Government will get vacant lands of DUSIB audited to track the encroachment on the board’s lands across the capital. In this direction, Deputy Chief Minister Shri Manish Sisodia has directed the officials to submit the audit report in 15 days. He has also asked them to establish an online computer inventory system for government lands under DUSIB, on a priority basis. An online system will help the government in tracking and stopping encroachment activities on government lands. The orders have been issued by the Deputy Chief Minister in light of a few encroachment and illegal land acquisition cases reported by the local residents.
While issuing the orders, the Deputy Chief Minister said, “Encroachment and illegal possession of government land is a serious matter and their removal is the priority of the government. DUSIB has been directed to take immediate action against those encroaching the government lands and also set up an online monitoring system to capture and regularly update the status of DUSIB’s vacant land and building assets with comprehensive details like geo coordinates, photographs, reports on the detection of encroachment and illegal occupancy, details of the officer in charge, etc. This system will help us keep track of all the activities happening on the government land and take swift action in case of any encroachment.”
Along with this, the board officials have also been directed to get a third-party audit done of its existing assets on a priority basis and submit the report within 15 days.
Shri Manish Sisodia said, “DUSIB’s main aim is to improve the quality of life and ensure government services to Slum and JJ Dwellers in the capital city of Delhi. Under the leadership of CM Arvind Kejriwal, the government has taken many initiatives through the board to provide a quality life and basic amenities to people living in these areas. Setting up an online monitoring system for DUSIB lands is also an important step in the same direction so that government lands which are for the common public can be freed from the clutches of land mafias.”
It is to be noted that the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board functions under the control of the Government of Delhi and is primarily functioning under the purview of the DUSIB Act, 2010. This act empowers the DUSIB to notify certain areas as slums, where with the passage of time, the buildings have become dilapidated and the basic civic services are missing. Apart from this, DUSIB has also been assigned the role of looking after the JJ settlements/clusters by way of provision of civic amenities and their resettlement too.

*CM Arvind Kejriwal dreams that each child in Delhi should get free world-class school and education facilities, team Education working diligently to fulfill this dream- Dy CM Manish Sisodia
*India will become the world's No.1 country, only by providing free and quality education to every child in the country- Dy CM Manish Sisodia
*Till every child in the country will not get a quality education, we will continue to teach this to generations that India is a developing country- Dy CM Manish Sisodia
*India will become No.1 by inculcating the entrepreneurial and job provider mindset in children, not by speeches- Dy CM Manish Sisodia*
*The day the children of America and Japan will start dreaming of working in the companies started by our students, on that day we will be able to officially teach that India is a developed country- Dy CM Manish Sisodia
NEW DELHI: 1ST OCTOBER 2022-Continuing the tradition of starting his day by visiting a Delhi Government School every morning and meeting the children regularly, Deputy CM Shri Manish Sisodia visited Government Co-ed Senior Secondary School, Dwarka Sector 2 on Saturday at 7:30 am. He joined the students in their morning assembly and interacted with them to know about their experiences of transformation in the school building, improved educational facilities, etc.
Students said that after moving from the old school building to the new one with excellent educational facilities, learning and reading have become more fun and their confidence has increased. The children added that earlier they did not have much attachment with the school but now it has changed because of the magnificent building of the school, availability of new educational facilities like lab-library, better classrooms, benches and improved teaching methods opted by the teachers.
Responding to the students’ experiences, the Education Minister said, "Chief Minister Shri Arvind Kejriwal and I have a dream that every child of Delhi should get a wonderful school to study, where they should be given world-class education free of cost. We are working hard to fulfill this vision.” He added that if India has to become the world's No. 1 country, then arrangements for free and quality education should be made for every child in the country.
Addressing the children, Shri Manish Sisodia said that the thoughts that stir your mind all the time while you are sleeping are actually your dreams. He said that no idea of yours is a dream until you think about it for 24 hours. When you will realize this, you will start working hard for it, then no matter how big your goal is, you will definitely achieve it.
He added that even after so many years of independence, India is still a developing country. When we were in school, it was taught that India is a developing country and even now children are taught the same in schools. This status of the country can be improved only by ensuring education for every child in the country. Until every child in the country will not get an excellent education, we will continue to teach the same from generation to generation. That's why in Delhi we are working to ensure that every child gets a quality education.
The Deputy Chief Minister also said, “If we want to make our country No.1 in the world then we will have to ensure quality education for every child. Along with this we also need to ensure the development of an entrepreneurial or job provider mindset among children. Today, when children leave school and college after studying, they leave with a job seeker mindset. They dream of going to America and working in companies like Google and Facebook. But in developed countries, children do not dream of doing jobs in these companies, but dream of starting such companies.” He added that across the country, 99.9% of children have only one dream, that they will do some good job after completing their studies, but till we do not change this dream from job seeker to job provider, we will not be able to achieve our goal of making India No.1 in the world.
Shri Manish Sisodia said that the day the children of America, and Japan will start dreaming of working in the companies created by our students, on that day we will be able to officially teach that India is a developed country. It will not become one by giving speeches only.
*Experiences shared by the students during interaction*
During the interaction, a class X student said that he wants to become a computer science engineer. Earlier this dream was for his own progress but now it is associated with contributing to the progress of the country, thanks to Deshbhakti Curriculum.
Another student Harsh said that he wants to end the problem of unemployment from the country by becoming an entrepreneur.
Ankita, a student of class 11, said that not only her mindset has changed with EMC, but her parents have also started to believe that getting a job is not the only option for a career.
A class 12 student said that she wants to become a psychologist and she got her inspiration from the Happiness Curriculum. By becoming a psychologist, she wants to remove the stress from people's lives and teach them to lead a healthy lifestyle while being happy

*No fuel in Delhi without valid PUC from October 25; Delhi Government announces strict measures to curb vehicular pollution

*From October 25, valid PUC to be mandatory for buying petrol and diesel at all pumps, Environment Department to issue notification soon: Gopal Rai

*Green War Room to be launched on October 3 to implement Winter Action Plan: Gopal Rai

*Anti dust campaign to be started in Delhi from October 6: Gopal Rai

*Will start free spraying of Pusa bio-decomposer to prevent stubble burning from October 10: Gopal Rai

*Delhi Government will strictly implement GRAP, a joint action plan should be made for all NCR states: Gopal Rai


NEW DELHI:01.10.22-Taking a step further after CM Shri Arvind Kejriwal's announcement of the Winter Action Plan, the Delhi Government today announced another set of strict measures to enforce the same. Most prominent among the measures is that consumers will not be able to buy fuel in Delhi without valid PUCs from October 25. Environment Minister Shri Gopal Rai informed, "From October 25, valid PUC will be mandatory for buying petrol and diesel at all pumps, Environment Department will issue its notification soon. The Green War Room will be launched on October 3 to implement Winter Action Plan. An anti dust campaign will be started in Delhi from October 6. We will start free spraying of Pusa bio-decomposer to prevent stubble burning from October 10. Delhi Government will strictly implement GRAP. However, a joint action plan should be made for all NCR states."

Environment Minister Shri Gopal Rai addressed an important conference regarding the Winter Action Plan. He said, “Keeping in mind the phenomenon of the rise of pollution level in Delhi every year, the Delhi Government, along with about thirty government departments, prepared the Winter Action Plan. Chief Minister Shri Arvind Kejriwal presented the plan in front of the people of Delhi yesterday by the. He also informed that ever since coming into power, the fight against pollution is going on a war footing as a result of which PM 10 level of Delhi has declined by 18% in the past five years as per the report by an agency of the Central Government. The support of the people of Delhi was pivotal in our mission. The Environment Department has also undertaken various studies to assess the reduction of pollution in the last 10 years on other parameters and we will release the outcome of study to the public very soon.”

He further said, “In Delhi, a 15-point action plan has been prepared against pollution, which will be implemented with strictness in Delhi, and all departments have been directed to rename prepared on alert mode for the same. CAQM has issued the modified GRAP system today and the Delhi Government has decided to implement it strictly. It should also be implemented in a similar manner across the entire NCR. We are now in a position to take action three days prior to deterioration of air level on the basis of forecast. All the departments will come into action swiftly because the change in pollution level in the winter season could be forecasted to an extent, but the rain and wind direction also has an important role to play.”

Talking about the implementation of the Winter Action Plan, he said, “In order to firmly implement the GRAP system as well as the 15-point Action Plan announced by the CM yesterday on the ground, we are going to launch a 24x7 war room in Delhi Secretariat from October 3rd. It will allow us to monitor the implementation of our plan efficiently with the support of the citizens of Delhi. It is because at several places in NCR, the GRAP system gets announced but there is not much seriousness about its implementation. That's why there is a need for public cooperation in Delhi. Our Government will not remain dependent only on the officers and hence, the war room will remain operational 24x7. We will increase the citizen’s involvement through the ‘Green Delhi’ App so that the government’s report can be verified through the feedback of the people."

He added, “The anti-dust campaign will begin on the 6th. All the rules and regulations prepared under the GRAP system have been sent to all the departments. I am also requesting the private agencies and construction companies to comply with two new measures we have brought this year, along with the measures which are already in force. First, all the construction sites with an area greater than 5 hundred sq metres should mandatorily register themselves on the web portal developed by the Environment Department. If they show any negligence in registration, they will be shut down in case the AQI level increases as per the GRAP system."

Shri Gopal Rai said, “Second, earlier, the sites with an area over 20 thousand sq metres were required to install an anti-smog gun. We have changed the rule, and the same is conveyed to everyone. Now the construction sites sized between 5 thousand sq metres to 10 thousand sq metres are required to have anti-smog guns. A construction site with an area between 5 thousand sq metres to 10 thousand sq metres needs to have one anti-smog gun. Construction sites sized between 10 thousand sq metres to 15 thousand sq metres are required to have two anti-smog guns and sites having a size between 15 thousand sq metres and 20 thousand sq metres need to have three anti-smog guns. Construction sites with an area greater than 20 thousand sq metres are required to have four anti-smog guns. We will take strict action if the new directions are not followed. There is still some time to make the necessary arrangements to comply with them because there will be no leniency.”

He continued, “CM Shri Arvind Kejriwal also announced that we will sprinkle bio-decomposer to decompose the stubble and avoid stubble burning. We have also increased the coverage area from 4 thousand acre to 5 thousand acre. We are taking the bio-decomposer in liquid form from the PUSA institute. We will start sparkling the bio-decomposer in all fields from October 10th belonging to those farmers who have filled the form, irrespective of whether or not they were growing basmati. I am appealing to the farmers, especially the ones who have fields on the Delhi-Haryana border in the Narela, Bhawana and Mundka area, that there were reports of stubble burning in those areas last year. They should use bio-decomposers to decompose the stubble. We have also alerted the Revenue Department to ensure that no one burns the stubble this year.”

Informing about a new provision regarding PUC certificates for effective compliance, he said, “Moreover, there is a new development under process. In the past, we have taken a lot of measures to curb vehicle pollution and new measures have also been inculcated in the Winter Action Plan. We are gearing up to implement another rule to not fill the petrol on petrol pumps in case the vehicles do not have PUC certificate. The Environment Minister said, “Towards this extent, we released a public notice for suggestion on March 3rd, 2022 and then we issued notices to all the departments on March 14th, 2022. We received suggestions from all the stakeholders by May 2nd, 2022. I chaired a meeting with officers of the Transport Department, Traffic Police, Food Supplies Department and all the concerned departments on September 29th where this decision was taken. The Transport Department will issue a notice on October 3rd, 2022 and people will have time till October 25th to get the PUC certificates of their vehicles. From October 25th onwards, no one will get petrol without a PUC certificate. The Transport Department will also give notice to all the government departments so that they can also check if they have valid PUCs.”

He added, “Last year, we took stringent action through strict surveillance and we can see the result of our action. I am appealing to the Delhiites that it is not possible to implement the Winter Action Plan without your cooperation. Your health and well-being are of utmost importance for us and we will work night and day to tighten a noose on pollution. People have followed the rules we have brought in the past, but pollution is an atmospheric issue as well. As per CSE’s report published last year, only 31% of Delhi’s pollution has emerged from sources within Delhi and the remaining NCR areas contribute towards 69% of Delhi’s pollution.”

Environment Minister Shri Gopal Rai concluded, “I am requesting the governments of those NCR areas to prepare their Winter Action Plan and form special teams for its monitoring and implementation. For instance, all the ministers and senior officers of Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Haryana reside in their respective state capitals, and they are not able to relate to the issue of air pollution in the NCR or the areas of their states bordering Delhi. This Winter Action Plan should keep in mind the needs and security of those areas. They should create a regional task force to oversee the implementation of this plan and it should be headquartered in the NCR range. We will remain in contact with all those state governments on this aspect. But before that, I want to appeal to the Delhiites to come together in implementing the Winter Action Plan announced by CM Shri Arvind Kejriwal yesterday so that we can avoid respiratory issues in the upcoming winters.”
