Last date to send suggestions on draft Delhi master plan 2041 extended

The government has extended the last date to submit suggestions and objections on the draft Master Plan of Delhi 2041 to August 23. It may be noted that several urban planning experts and activists had requested the government to extend the date in view of the coronavirus pandemic and the voluminous nature of the vision document.

“The Delhi Development Authority published the public notice for inviting objections, suggestions with respect to the draft Master Plan for Delhi-2041 (MPD-2041) on June 9, 2021 for a period of 45 days. The Central government has extended the period for filing objections, suggestions by 30 days,” the DDA said in a statement.

Any person wishing to submit any objections or suggestions should give his or her name, address and telephone or other contact details and may send it via the DDA web or in writing to the commissioner- cum-secretary, DDA, the statement said.

From creating a ”24-hour city” with night-time economy, extensive transport infrastructure, affordable housing for all and healthy environment to checking unauthorised colonies and pollution – these are part of the guiding principles the DDA has laid out for the Master Plan of Delhi 2041. The vision document largely covers the policies of environment, economy, mobility, heritage, culture and public spaces, among others.

The process of preparation of Master Plan of Delhi 2041 was initiated in 2017, and it remained on track in spite of the lockdown and other restrictions on account of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first Master Plan for Delhi was promulgated in 1962 under the Delhi Development Act of 1957, followed by the Master Plans of 2001 and 2021, each of which is an extensive modification of the respective previous plan document.
