Delegation from dhobi ghats in NDMC meets CM

A delegation of Pradhans and their representatives of 16 dhobi ghats in the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) area raised the issue of 'non-issuance' of fresh licences since a long time before the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday.

Kejriwal assured the representatives that he will press the demand before the NDMC.

The delegation met Kejriwal at the Secretariat here and raised various issues being faced by them.

On the occasion, the delegation also raised the issue of transfer and renewal of their licences.

"License can be transferred from a father to his son only when the father dies. However, in many cases the father gets too old and is unable to work, but the transfer is not done. This should be changed and the license should be transferred with an undertaking/affidavit when the holder wants it," requested one of the members of the delegation.

The Chief Minister agreed to the demand and said that he will push it with the NDMC and do his best to get it done.

Taking note of the renovation of ghats and complaints of sub-standard works, the Chief Minister said, "Now onwards, the contractor will be paid the amount meant for renovation only after the ghat committees approve the work done and are satisfied with the standard of the work done," Kejriwal said.

On the demand for formation of a mother committee of all the 16 ghats committees, the Chief Minister said that it was a good idea as it will make coordination with the NDMC easier.
Kejriwal also asked them to keep informing him of the works being done and other issues at a regular interval.
