Delhi: No mega infrastructure initiative in SDMC budget | Delhi News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: No mega infrastructure projects have been specified in the proposed budget estimates for 2022-23 of South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC). Only ongoing or new initiatives and small projects to improve civic services and recreational facilities were highlighted by commissioner Gyanesh Bharti on Tuesday.
The projects funded through public-private-partnership, CSR schemes or other sources of funds include Shaheedi and Bollywood parks, plastic waste plant of five tonnes per day capacity, a material recovery facility, e-vehicle charging stations, parking app, compressed biogas plant at Hastsal and solar panels on municipal buildings. Besides, starting the recourse centre for children with special needs in each zone, establishing stack or multilevel parking facilities at new identified sites and animal and bird centres at Vasant Kunj were among other projects part of the existing or proposed budgets.
“We have prepared the detailed project report for the Bollywood Park, which will come up on eight acres at Jangpura. The proposal, which will be done in PPP mode, will be presented in the next standing committee meeting. We have planned to erect 3D and 2D cutouts of filmstars, process of film production and other equipment related to film production,” said an official.
For Shaheedi Park, too, funds received from the Centre’s Urban Development Fund Scheme would be utilised. “
SDMC has signed an agreement with Broadcast Engineers Consultant India Limited to run parking facilities through the “My Parkings” app to help users book parking space in advance, find vacant space, pay online and find the route to the facility.
“The move will ensure hassle-free parking facilities to users and attract them. An MoU has been signed with IGL for construction of a compressed biogas plant with a capacity of 100 TDP wet waste at Hastsal and land has already been provided for this purpose,” said the official.
