After approving development projects worth Rs 1,766.72 crore in its budget proposal for 2012-13, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi’s (MCD) works committee on Tuesday sanctioned more development schemes amounting to Rs 40 crore. The money will be spent on constructing roads, community halls and school buildings.
Chairman of the works committee, Jagdish Mamgain, on Tuesday said the committee had approved the construction of school buildings at Sultanpuri, Pooth Khurd, Bawana, Pushp Vihar, Geeta colony and Shastri Nagar, adding that Rs 18.60 crore would be spent on it.
The other projects approved include multi-purpose community hall at Punjabi Colony, Narela and Geeta Colony, which will be used to host functions.
“Besides, we will construct an outfall drain at village Holambikalana and densely carpet road at Prem Nagar and Jalyanvas,” Mamgain said.
A drain at Khurenji and RMC Road on Old Matiala Road will also be constructed. For its own municipal staff, Rs 2.5 crore has been set aside to install water supply in the staff quarters at Usmanpur. Mamgain said the staff quarters received water from tubewells, but with the project, they would get supply from the DJB.
