Delhi govt will provide free sewer connections under the “Mukhyamantri Muft Sewer Connection Yojana”. 25,000 households located in East Delhi will be provided with free sewer connections under the ‘Mukhyamantri Muft Sewer Connection Yojana.’ The free sewer connections will be provided by the Delhi government in 12 colonies in Mustafabad and Karawal Nagar.
The free sewer connections will be provided by the Delhi government in 12 colonies in Mustafabad and Karawal Nagar. The colonies will be including Chandu Nagar, Rajiv Gandhi Nagar, and parts of Khajuri Khas. Rs 19 crore has been allocated by the state government for the implementation of these connections. The board also decided to set up 30 RO plants at JJ colonies to increase the drinking water supply. Each plant will provide around 50,000 litres of water per day. The supply will be free.
Where will the waste generated be carried to?
Through the free sewer connections, the households will be connected to Delhi’s existing sewer network. The waste generated will be carried to the Yamuna Vihar sewage treatment plant. The aim of providing the free sewer connection is to prevent the sewage that is generated from landing in the River Yamuna. The sewer connections in these colonies will help to prevent 2.5 crore litres of untreated waste from falling into River Yamuna.
