103 Government Colonies to implement rainwater harvesting

74 colonies in Delhi and 29 colonies in various parts of the country have been selected for intensive campaign of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs from July, 2019 to October, 2019. Apart from rainwater harvesting, Sensitization on Source Segregation of Household waste and cleaning & greening will form part of this 100 day campaign.

The Central Public Works Department would construct Rooftop Rain Water harvesting structures in the selected colony buildings to ensure conservation and judicious use of water.

Further, with the help of Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) and residents of colonies, sensitization of source segregation of house hold waste and adoption of home composting of organic waste will be done. The ULBs will ensure segregated collection, transportation and disposal of waste from colonies.

Also, plantation drives will be organized throughout the period in association with the residents, Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs), Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) and other stakeholders to ensure maximum participation. A special plantation campaign will be organised in 29 colonies all over the country. Minimum 50% of the plantation will be of fruit bearing trees of local species.
