----letter sent to DDA Commissioner (Planning):

Sub: DMP-2021 Public Notice: Request for clarification

Ref: DDA press release, reported in newspapers today

Dear Mr Jain,

News reports today, with quotes from a DDA press
release and a spokesperson, suggest that the DMP-2021
"public notice" that has been up on DDA website for a
few days is the one on which "views and suggestions"
may be sent in 90-days, etc.

I had the impression that what has been on DDA's
website for a few days was the draft circulated to
confidante experts and sections of the press before
approval on 10.01.2005 – since the index page, while
it does say "public notice" does not mention details
of gazette notification or even date, Land Use Plan
and other maps are missing, several pages carry the
header "for restricted circulation", etc, besides
which other s.11A Public Notices for DMP-2001
modification (such as for hospitals and for
recreational clubs published today) continue to be
issued and there are also pending Public Notices,
court matters, etc.

If the document is indeed out for the 90-day Public
Notice, I will be very obliged if you would let me
know where I can peruse / purchase the English and
Hindi versions.

Yours sincerely

Gita Dewan Verma, Planner
