New Delhi: The streetlights are not working on a road from Vardhman City Mall to JJ Colony in Sector 7, Dwarka. The entire stretch has become unsafe for people to use after dark.
To make matters worse, there is also a confusion about the rectification of streetlights in the area. General public doesn’t know whom to contact and has to lodge a complaint for rectification of streetlights.
There is no mechanism which could help the community people to approach the authority and resolve the problems soon.
Another issue is that most of the street lights are covered with tree branches which need to get trimmed regularly.
Field staff of the concerned agency should take regular rounds of the area to find out whether streetlights are in order or not.
Concerned agencies' names and contact numbers should be painted on streetlight poles so that they could be contacted.
