The Punjabi Bagh stadium is hardly used for sports. Does the MCD plan to stop or minimise its use for other purposes?

The stadium could not be used for sports for technical and practical reasons. Therefore, it was utilised as a venue for social functions. The whole matter was recently reviewed and there is a plan to reconstruct the stadium.

How many MCD parks are allowed as wedding venues?

How many community halls does the MCD own and how many are to be built?
There are 216 MCD community halls in Delhi. In 2009-10, nine new halls were opened and 147 will be constructed in the next five years. Out of these, 128 are to be constructed in wards which do not have a single community hall.

The MCD charges Rs. 200 per function for cleaning the venue after it is over. The MCD staffs regularly remove the leftover.
