Unclaimed debris on roads to be removed by civic bodies : Delhi government

The circular has been issued after getting approval from PWD Minister Satyendar Jain.


Unclaimed debris on roads in the national capital will be removed by local bodies, the Delhi government has said. The public works department (PWD) has issued a circular, saying that removing "unclaimed malba" (debris) from roads is an "obligatory function" of the corporation under Section 42 of the Delhi Municipal Act, 1957.

The circular has been issued after getting approval from PWD Minister Satyendar Jain.

The PWD owns around 1,260-km roads in the national capital. Local bodies also own their roads in the city.

It also stated that henceforth, the public works department of the Delhi government will remove only construction and demolition waste generated from its own project.
