i purchased today (21/03/05) the Draft Master Plan for
Delhi 2021!!!
published by Narendar Kumar Jain for J.M.Jaina & Bros;
available at Ekta Book Company in High Court. It has
asterix mark note at bottom of contents page saying
'As per information released by Delhi Development
Authority' and is straight from the website. i spent
250/- to add to my collection of the never-befores in
the history of planning in India that this DMP
revision continues to throw up!

Dear Gita,

As a concerned public citizen I toodled down to
Vikas
Sadan INA and barged into the pr. Comm cum Secys
office and generally hassled everyone in sight.

It seems that shortly a printed book "may" be
available from D-6 Vasant Kunj. Will visit them
tommorrow at D-6.

----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
