New Delhi: The North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) will start sweeping at night in 16 commercial places in its area of jurisdiction on an “experimental” basis from January 1, 2017.
This night sweeping initiative in 16 identified marketplaces and roads will be taken up on a “trial” basis to ensure proper sanitation.
Huge crowds in morning hours make sweeping and garbage collection difficult, said Pravesh Wahi, the chairman of the North Delhi Municipal Corporation’s Standing Committee, explaining the rationale behind the trial.
The 16 identified areas include Jama Masjid, Gaffar Market, Chandni Chowk, Rohini, Ajmal Khan Road, Kamla Market, Model Town II, RG Complex (Prasant Vihar), Main Bazaar (Paharganj), Sadar Bazar, Alipur, and Narela, he said.
The departments concerned and officials in the zones have been directed to ensure effective implementation of the initiative, he added.
