Mr. Neh Srivastava has held many important portfolios like Commerce and Textile, Prasar Bharti and as DG of Foreign trade under the govt. of India. For over 20 years, he has given valuable contribution to policy making in the field of public demand, policy formulation and implementation. According to him, purchasing a house in Delhi had become a distant dream owing to high land cost and unavailability of land with DDA for allotment to Group Housing Societies as had been done earlier in Patparganj, Rohini and Dwarka around the1980s. The opportunity has now come by way of DDA’s Land Pooling Policy (LPP) under Delhi Master Plan, 2021 to de-congest the National Capital Region and facilitate it with all modern amenities on the concept of “Smart Cities”. As per the Policy, a Society/ Developer should have minimum 5 acres of agricultural land for submission to DDA, who will develop the whole area and return the residential land equivalent to 60% of their land.
To accelerate the efforts to achieve universal sanitation coverage and to put the focus on sanitation, the Prime Minister of India had launched the Swachh Bharat Mission on 2nd October 2014. Under the mission, all villages, Gram Panchayats, Districts, States and Union Territories in India declared themselves "open-defecation free" (ODF)
by 2 October 2019, the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, by constructing over 100 million toilets in rural India. To ensure that the open defecation free behaviours are sustained, no one is left behind, and that solid and liquid waste management facilities are accessible, the Mission is moving towards the next Phase II of SBMG i.e ODF-Plus. ODF Plus activities under Phase II of Swachh Bharat Mission (Grameen) will reinforce ODF behaviours and focus on providing interventions for the safe management of solid and liquid waste in villages.
