Top civic authority officials in Dwarka said the sub-city will be made into a model city that everyone will be proud of. The assurance was made by the officials at the 18th Foundation Day celebrations of the Federation of Cooperative Group Housing Societies, Dwarka, at a function held at Gokul Garden in Dwarka, Sector 7.

Senior officials from different civic agencies took part in the celebrations and shared their own insights and experiences with the members of the housing societies congregated on the occasion. Resident organisations also presented a colourful cultural programme to mark the event, where a souvenir of the federation was released.

Addressing the gathering, West Delhi Lok Saba MP Parvesh Verma promised that Dwarka will develop into a ‘model city’ in the NCR. Listing out future projects coming up in the sub-city, Verma said ambitious projects in the pipeline included a diplomatic enclave, a football stadium, a golf course, schools and colleges. To ease congestion and smoothen traffic flow, the Dwarka authorities will build an underground tunnel road from Dhaula Kuan to the Sector 21 Metro station. The project has got ministerial clearance and is now at the designing stage, said the Lok Sabha MP, who was the chief guest at the function.

Among those who attended the function were Chief Engineer, DDA, Dwarka, SN Singh; CEO of BSES, Amlan Sinha; ACP Dwarka, Rajendra Singh; and Executive Engineer DJB, Anil Kumar Sharma.


Chief Engineer of DDA, SN Singh, mingled with residents and said he was open to meeting them anytime. At present, there were many procedures pending in handing over the management of facilities to the PWD. Sadly, paucity of personnel in different departments such as Engineering, which is short of staff by 15 per cent, was affecting the pace of work, he admitted.

He also said DDA was seriously considering the requests for a foot overbridge (FOB) or underpass in Dwarka. “The demands for an FOB or an underpass have been there for a long time. We are working on that and our first target is to get the plan approved,” Singh said.


CEO of BSES, Amlan Sinha, said work was in progress about a single meter system in the CGHS societies. The process was on and soon the new single meter system would be activated.


Executive engineer of Delhi Jal Board (DJB) Anil Kumar Sharma told the gathering that soon a cash counter would be opened in Dwarka Sector 5, to serve senior citizens and people wanting to pay in cash. At present, many senior citizens were finding it difficult to reach the cash counter located in Kakrola. The new Sector 5 cash counter will start functioning from April 1, he said.

On the sewage charges and penalties on rainwater harvesting systems in societies, Sharma said, “Till now all the charges have been waived off by the government. But from June 1, the use of borewells by societies will be charged a fee of Rs 100 per flat. It is the responsibility of the managements to seal the borewells,” Sharma said, adding, “for a rainwater harvesting system, a self-certification from the management should be submitted to DJB. The officials will then inspect the spot and validate it.”

But this self-certification must be submitted before May 31 by the RWAs.
