Ref: Your reference numbers 5228, 5231, 5268, 5269 dated 4th & 5th October 2001

This is with reference to representations from Vasant Kunj Rehari Patri Vyapari Ekta Manch. They have raised the issue about non-implementation of the Master Plan and non-provision of the land for informal sector.

As per the Master Plan there is a provision for informal sector in all our commercial sectors such as local shopping centre, community shopping centre and district shopping centre. In many of the places DDA has allowed the land for such informal sectors in our various schemes. As far as the Vasant Kunj is concerned I have requested the Chief Architect, DDA who is in charge of designing the shopping centre to identify the land for such informal sector and forwarded the same to Land Department for further necessary action.
