Staff crunch ups pollution woes 17.12.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Delhiites may be suffering from pollution but what's surprising to note is that there are only 19 pollution inspectors doubling up as RTI, vigilance and Motor Vehicle (MV) inspectors to check the over 971 Pollution Under Control (PUC) test centres across the city which cater to over one crore registered vehicles. Officials say the Delhi government has not made any new recruitments for these posts in almost a decade. Despite the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP government, strongly coming out against the recent pollution problems in the Capital, calling the city a "gas chamber" they also have not done much to fill these posts so far. Pollution inspectors are the need of the hour especially in Delhi where vehicular pollution counts for 20 per cent of the city's toxic air. But so far in Delhi government's transport department, out of the 38 sanctioned posts of Pollution Level Test Inspectors (PLTIs), only 19 have been filled. The number of filled posts has remained the same for years while the levels of pollution ...

"A few years ago, on this day, the Nirbhaya incident took place. I don't think we have taken any bold steps towards bolstering the security of women. It is a matter of concern for all of us and we should not indulge in blaming each other. However, I am happy that the Public Works Department (PWD) has taken a solid step in this direction. The tenders for installing CCTV cameras have been opened. Soon, we will have CCTV cameras across the city," said Kejriwal on the sidelines of the inauguration of a flyover loop in ...
