Delhi Lt. Governor Anil Baijal on Thursday said door-to-door checking and patrolling was needed to check usage of non-permitted fuels in industrial areas.

The Governor came up with multiple solutions after reviewing traffic management and environment pollution at Kaushambi and Anand Vihar areas in a meeting here.

East MCD (Municipal Corporation of Delhi) should take care of general sanitation and hygiene of Anand Vihar, Baijal said, as per a statement.

He said that for better traffic management and movement, possibility of multi-modal integration system should be explored.

The meeting was attended by Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot and Environment Pollution Control Authority (EPCA) Chairman Bhure Lal.

Anand Vihar is surrounded by two industrial areas of Sahibabad and Patparganj, which are using non-approved fuels for running their industries and are burning garbage in their industrial areas, the statement said.

Baijal advised the Environment Department, and agencies concerned to devise a mechanism for door-to-door checking and patrolling in these areas for better enforcement of non-usage of non-permitted fuels.

He also noted the need for setting up of urinals by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) at Kaushambi for preventing open defecation and directed the DMRC to carry out the work in a time-bound manner.

Baijal instructed Commissioner, East MCD and the Public Works Department to carry out the remaining paving work around the bus terminal in the area.

The meeting brought to notice that traffic police should notify these areas as no parking zone for the main roads, so that buses and three-wheelers do not remain parked there, which causes a lot of traffic congestion and inconvenience.
