New Delhi: The Resident Welfare Association (RWA) of Nahru Nagar, South Delhi, has called residents of the area to illuminate dim-lit areas near their flats by installing streetlights under Chief Minister Street Light Scheme which was started by Delhi government.
Nehru Nagar Yuva Residents Welfare Association, the RWA body has asked the residents to participate in the scheme and help in illuminating the dark spots and dim-lit spots in the colony. For this, the RWA has offered assistance to the residents.
“We have kept prints of the form at our office. The residents can take it from there and fill the forms. The RWA will collect the forms and submit to the MLA office,” told Sachin Shah, president of the RWA.
“The process is very simple. The residents have to fill necessary details in the form and mention their electricity registration number. The power corporation will come and survey the applicants. After that, the lights will be installed,” Shah explained.
“It will help in illuminating our area. Besides, the applicants may save some money on the bill as well. It is just like the scheme where residents applied for CCTV cameras near their homes,” Shah added.
Shah also said that he has received seven applications till date. “We will wait for few more days. The number of applications will rise in coming days,” he added.
Under CM Street Light Scheme, the state government will install around 2.1 lakh streetlights to light up dark spots. The 3 discoms will have the responsibility of installing these streetlights. Each discom will install 70,000 streetlights.
Till date, there are around 7 lakh streetlights in Delhi and 2 lakhs more will be added under this scheme.
