First notified in year 2007, review of the policy began in year 2014 and since then the policy has missed several deadlines. Its understandable to an extent given the number of steps involved in the finalization process, which includes collecting suggestions/objections from the public, discussing them out in the DDA meeting, sending proposal to UD ministry etc. With almost everything else in place, more work needs to be done on the remaining two chapters, namely, transportation and environment.
Under transportation, TOD or Transit Oriented Development is the focus point to bring in new infrastructure parallel to public transport routes to reduce travel time.
A separate chapter on environment has been kept in the planning to focus on Delhi’s greenery and to enforce green norms during all phases of implementation.
