New Delhi, Sept 15 (UNI) Centre today announced a Rs 300 crore action plan for a visible improvement in Solid Waste Management in Delhi.


Addressing the ‘Public Affairs Forum of India’ here, Minister of State for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri said this initiative will be supported by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs from the ‘Urban Development Fund’ operated by Delhi Development Authority.


Mr Puri said under the Plan, automated machinery, equipment and other systems will be procured for better collection, transport and storage of garbage, decentralised treatment and better maintenance of sewers and drains.

Soon after assuming office, Mr Puri raised the issue of garbage problem in the national capital during a discussion on Swachh Bharat Mission (Urban) in the Ministry on the fifth of this month and desired an action plan for improving the situation.
