    Public Hearings in Aadarsh Bastis

    As part of the MoU with DUSIB to strengthen community engagement in Adarsh Basti Centre for Advocacy and Research (CFAR), Mahila Pragati Manch (MPM) and Community Management Committee (CMC) have been given the responsibility of providing evidence on quantity and quality of access toand use of sanitation services across 14 Adarsh Bastis where we are partnering with Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB).

    In pursuance of this mandate, in Nov-Dec 2016 we are organizing public hearings in all 14 settlements (Balmiki Basti, Rajiv Camp-Chitra Vihar, East Guru Anand Nagar, Indira Camp-Beghampur, Janta Jeevan Camp-Okhla, Indira Camp-Beghampur, Janta Jeevan Camp-Okhla, Karotia Camp-Okhla, New Sanjay Camp-Okhla, Seemapuri, Sunlight Colony, Rajasthani Camp-Sarita Vihar and Sanjay Camp-Dakshhinpuri)

    On December 27, 2016, Public Hearing was organized at Gram Kheda, Jhilmil, in the presence of key officials from DUSIB and Delhi Jal Board (DJB). Prior to the Public Hearing we conducted interactions with residents in almost every lane to identify the deponents for the Public Hearing.

    Toilet complex has only 16 seats which is less to this populated area, there should be more seats. Other thing is that CTC should be open during night time too, where we are supposed to go in night time?- Sonam gupta

    There should be water supply in small lanes too, there is unnecessary quarrel in the area because of this issue- Rabia

    Garbage dumping house is very far away in our area. There should be small dumping stations in interiors because sometimes people miss garbage pickups because there are out on work duty- Ajeet Kumar

    Light poll in our street is leaning down and discharge current as well which is very dangerous- Rukhsana

    Based on the depositions following commitments were made by the officials: 

    • DUSIB will reconstruct old CTC in 45 days, will also give instruction to the caretaker to keep toilet open for users till 11pm.
    • Repairing and reconstruction work of drains is in progress and DUSIB will increase the height of drains with proper slope wherever water stagnation problem is occurring
    • DUSIB will cover open gutter near the community toilet
    • Delhi Jal Board will install taps in each lane as soon as possible

     Decisions taken by the community group members: 

    • Will file written complaint to MCD official to clean the open drain near slum and fix a permanent place and timing for the garbage van so that all people can throw households waste in the garbage collection van.
    • Will also write to BSES office for adequate street lights in the area and  to repair electricity pole
