"Health facilities galore but no taker"

A write up was published in in Dwarka Plus (A TOI supplement) titled "Health facilities galore but no taker," (August 25). The work "....but no taker" suggest that the medical facilities are in surplus in Dwarka and that the demand for a Central Government Health Scheme dispensary is not justified. My question is that whether without such basic facilities, how can we truly call Dwarka - a sub-city?

I ask from the authorities that when a large number of Central Government - working and retired - employees are residing at Dwarka and they are contributing towards this facility to the government also, why there should not be a CGHS dispensary there. How many retd or working employee can afford the costly treatment of private doctors/ hospitals and why they should afford when they are contributing for the health service?

In reply to an RTI filed by the undersigned, Mr. R. Ravi, Dy. Secy. of Ministry of Health has, in his letter dated 22.8.07, informed that "at present there is no proposal to open a dispensary at Dwarka, New Delhi". However, Mr. Ravi has not given any reason for the same. Is it justified that so much employees who are contributing for a particular service are kept out of its ambit and asked to go the Delhi govt dispensaries? Definitely, this amount to the deficiency of service. Is it not the duty of the Central Government to provide the medical facilities to lakhs of employees and the families of retd.(senior citizens) and its working employees near their residences?

Moreover, in the aforesaid write up of Dwarka Plus, apart from four Delhi government dispensaries which are now operational, it has been stated that all other scheme are in the pipeline. Can the employees wait till these schemes start working?

Dwarka entrance road-nightmare for residents

This is the condition of the "road" -"opened to trial run" (can someone elaborate how a road can be opened for trial for so many months!) this gives entrance to dwarka from dabri side, and goes into janakpuri.
This has been deteriorating since past one year and no one in authority seems to be bothered with the horrible condition of this road that can give jitters to us drivers and has damaged our vehicles terribly.
Also while going towards janakpuri, there is wide ditch ready and waiting to welcome any unwary driver. Is this how we tax paying residents are supposed to be treated by Delhi Govt?

Elite law school likely to come up in the Capital in three years

Foundation stone for complex at Dwarka was laid in July 2006, but project was stalled following a controversy over setting up a mediation centre.
Following several hurdles and hiccups, Delhi will at last have an elite law school on par with other law colleges in the country, coupled with a National Mediation Centre, at Dwarka.

The project will take at least three years to be operational, it is learnt.

The foundation stone of the integrated complex at Dwarka was laid by the then Chief Justice of India Y K Sabharwal on July 22, 2006, but following a controversy over the setting up of a mediation centre at Tis Hazari, the project was stalled.

The project got a nod when the Delhi Judicial District’s oldest Bar Association at Tis Hazari protested CM Sheila Dikshit’s proposal of decentralisation of courts and opening of district courts at Dwarka, Saket and other districts.

Earlier, the setting up of mediation centre was also opposed and agitators had vandalised the Mediation Cell at Tis Hazari. The protesters alleged that the cell was funded by the Ford Foundation and the concept would “undermine the legal system of the country” and was an attempt by corporate houses to “privatise the law system”.

The agitators had also attacked the members of newly-formed Rohini Bar Association. However, a year later, matters appear to have been sorted out.

“We have accorded recognition to the Rohini Bar Association and have recognised the new court complex. We always wanted the government to make sure that all new proposals ultimately help the public and are convenient to the Bar members,” said Sanjeev Nasiar of the Delhi Bar Association.

“The bar associations have agreed to the mediation centre plan, provided that corporate interests do not undermine the legal system,” said Delhi Legal District officials.

According to the earlier plan, the three proposed institutions — the Delhi Judicial Academy, the National Law School and the National Institute of Mediation and Conciliation — will come up on a 12.19 acre-plot with an estimated cost of Rs 108 crore.

The Delhi Judicial Academy will provide training to Delhi Judicial Service and Delhi Higher Judicial Service members, while the National Law School will be on par with elite law schools at Bangalore and Pune.

The integrated complex will also have residential facilities. Though all the three institutions will function independently, they would share some common facilities like comprehensive library and an auditorium.

The PWD will be going ahead with the remainder of the construction at Dwarka. “The revised schedule will continue smoothly and electrical systems should shortly be installed,” said A K Malik Executive Engineer (Building Project Electrical Division) to Newsline.

Munak canal will end Dwarka’s water problems, says DJB

If the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) officials’ claims on Haryana deciding to press forward with work on the crucial 80 mgd Munak canal are to be believed, Dwarka residents could soon find a solution to their water woes.

According to Jal Board officials, Haryana had earlier slowed down, and had even halted the work when 80 per cent of it was complete, wanting more water for farming.

“The Munak canal, which carries upper yamuna water, will be ready by mid 2008. It will save nearly 80 mgd of water from seepage of which 40 mgd will go to Dwarka. Dwarka currently gets 3 mgd of water” said DJB CEO Arun Mathur.

The nearly Rs 400 crore canal project is expected to cater to visitors to the upcoming Commonwealth Games, planned malls, convention centers, future housing projects and also a new Airport being planned in Dwarka, say officials.

A new 40 mgd plant is already being planned in Dwarka. The remaining 40 mgd will be divided between a 20 mgd Okhla plant to benefit the south and southwest areas while 20 mgd will go to an upcoming Bawana plant, officials said.

Meanwhile, DJB officials said it would get nearly 60 mgd water by recycling its waste water at treatment plants apart from running the Sonia Vihar plant to full capacity by March 2008. “Whenever water is treated, 8 per cent of it is lost. But we will now recycle and retain this water for use in five major plants, thus saving us 40 mgd,” said Mathur, who expects it to be ready by March 2008.

An additional 20 mgd is expected from Bhakra-beas board, officials added. “All this will add upto 160 mgd of extra water by next year. Of this, 120 mgd will be ready for supply by early next year,” said Mathur.

Officials said that though Uttar Pradesh was supplying the full 140 mgd for the Sonia Vihar plant, less than 120mgd was being used due to infrastructure problems. Mathur claimed that infrastructure work on pipes and tests at the plant were at an advanced stage.

Ans. Since most of the people are living in cooperative societies, people should not stint on employing good security agencies, secondly, they should keep handy emergency phone numbers.

4. To be able to maintain high literacy level of Dwarka as a sub city, a library must be provided to the literate intellectuals ranging from experienced teachers, journalists, bureaucrats, technocrats and other professionals residing in Dwarka. To whom can we approach for this?

This time a calf had faced a severe accident at Sector-9

Yesterday evening around 4 pm a speeding car hit a calf at Sector-9Dwarka in front of Queens Valley school and ran off and in the accident broke two of its hind legs and there was nobody to pick it upuntil I saw it lying and two of the labours working there alongwith arickshaw puller carried the calf to the footpath and was waiting forsomeone to help them around 6.15pm and arranged some medicines andbandaged the legs of the calf. The calf was then profusely bleeding .I called up from the Dwarka City directory all the vets available butno one dared to come. Everyone had their own emergency case and some were out and just avoiding. The residents just passed by leastbothered. In fact if a human being is also lying by the road no bodydares to pick up the body until the police arrives and does somethingwhich is too late. Then the calf was taken to Dwarka veterenary hospital which was then closed as it closes at 3pm. Then we called upSanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre and SPCA too but both were justavoiding and diverting us to get in touch with Munirka hospital andthe number of Munirka they were giving was out of order. Then we called up 100 and Dwarka Police Station people also arrived and calledup Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre and SPCA and they were alsodiverted to Munirka. Somehow we reached Munirka people ChaudhariDeshram Mamorial Gau Sewa Trust who in turn send the vehicle on which we arranged to send the calf at around 8.15 pm and carried thebleeding calf for treatment to Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre whereit is being treated. Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre did not have anambulance of their own or must be having only one carriage which must have gone somewhere. In case of emergencies they cannot provide anambulance and boast of being a very big hospital.
Dwarka Police thana people said that it was MCD's work and they would pick up and carry the calf to the MCDhospital and called up the MCD people around 6.30 pm but the MCDvehicle is still to arrive. Since last evening till today morning it has not arrived. If we would have been waiting for the MCD people thenthe calf would have bled the whole night and would have lost his life.How does our MCD work?

The vehicle had come from the address below:-Pradhan Mahindra SinghChaudhary Deshram Gau Sewa TrustPO JNUMunirkaNew Delhi - 110067Cell. 9810304051
They provide vehicle free of service . They pick up the injured animals and drop them at Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre.

RAIN EFFECT of DELHI, Picture of Bus Drawning at Sect 22, Dwarka Subcity-Delhi

Mobile Videos :

Dear All,
Please find the condition of an Under Pass build and maintained by DDA/ Flyover Division at Sect 22, Dwarka, connecting NH-8 (Shiv Murthy).
The negligence by the agency(DDA) in this matter is very clear, I have written a number of complaints and even RTI on this under pass's poor maintenance. However NO Progress nor any action has been taken by the authorities at DDA.
Lakhs of working class from Dwarka to Central/South Delhi and Gurgaon is struck up due to this underpass blocked today.
DDA claims the Asia's largest subcity is one of the highstandard and example of DDA's good work???
DDA is neglecting the subcity like any other part of the city. The only part of Delhi whch is constructed and controlled under Master Plan...(is it masterplanned?)
Its always a BLAME GAME by Authorites. However, in this case it comes under DDA only, neither Delhi Govt nor any MCD/DJB/PWD is responsible.Appreciate you highlight this image and take up with DDA Vice Chairman/Engineer Member and Flyover Division team.

Thanking you,
Nav Sansad Vihar
