Recently, the New Delhi Municipal Council announced its budget for the period 2022-23. Several proposals were included in it which were signing agreements with only renewable energy providers, no purchase of diesel and petrol cars for employees, setting up 100 EV charging stations, and others.

NDMC wants to shift to the 100% renewable energy municipal body of India. It will also sign agreements with solar and hydel energy providers only. It will launch Pay-Gov payment portal in the financial year 2022-23.

“NDMC continues to take lead in pollution mitigation measures and has resolved to stop the purchase of petrol or diesel-based passenger cars and will acquire electric cars in future, converting its existing fleet too in a phased manner. NDMC has already introduced more than 60 e-charging stations in its area and is augmenting by more than 100 in this year itself,” the civic body chairman Dharmendra said.

“A fleet of the e-scooter is planned to be deployed in this year complementing the smart bikes. Its cycle-in-city scheme is expected to put in place dedicated cycle tracks in facilitating office goers to cycle to work in a safe and enjoyable manner. To reduce dust pollution, intensive tree washing is being continued. Mist sprayers have been deployed at central park with more coming up and mechanical road sweepers have proven to be very effective in mitigating dust in the air. Green strips are being developed at a fast pace so that entire brown space is covered leaving little scope for dust pollution,” he added.

“Providing an electric connection to JJ Cluster in left out jhuggis work is in the pre-tendering stage and is likely to be taken up during the 2022-23 financial year. Two fault locating vans for detecting the fault of feeders are in process and the fault locating vans are likely to be procured by June 2022,” he said.
