Doorstep delivery of rations approved, CM: instructs the food department to implement immediately
The AAP government has claimed that while there is 20 lakh targeted beneficiaries of the Public Distribution System (PDS), widespread corruption in the system prevents from adequate rations reaching those who need it. To solve this problem, the Arvind Kejriwal cabinet had approved of a ‘doorstep delivery of rations’ scheme to ensure doorstep delivery of monthly ration to beneficiaries on a timely basis.
The aim of the project is to reorganise health care facilities by remodeling the dispensaries into polyclinics, which will be attached to various Delhi government hospitals. The expenditure sanction of Rs 303 crore for the construction of the six-lane flyover at Shastri Park Intersection and two-lane flyover at Seelampur has also been approved.
