The Delhi government will install bio-digester toilets on a pilot basis which will solve the problem of sewage system and help revive the water bodies.

Vice-chairman of Delhi Dialogue Commission (DDC) Ashish Khetan said: “We have decided to install bio-digester toilets. We have identified 75 houses in Aya Nagar in south Delhi for the plan.”

“The black and the grey water coming out from the toilet and kitchen will be treated once it reaches the common point of the system installed.”

“We will then discharge properly treated water of Aya Nagar in a pond located there,” he added.

Khetan said once it is successful, the model will be implemented in other part of the capital as well.

He said the cost of the project would be very low and the system would be maintained by the Delhi Urban Slum Improvement Board.

Bio-digester technology is environment-friendly, maintenance-free, and efficient without depending on conventional energy sources.

People living in Delhi can now avail 30 more services at their doorstep, including adding members in ration card, paying the motor vehicle tax and getting a DTC pass, taking the total number of such services to 70. The second phase of the doorstep delivery of public services, the official launch of which is yet to take place, has been rolled out.

Residents can dial 1076 and get the service by paying Rs 50 extra, an official from Delhi’s Administrative Reforms told IANS. The new services include booking a tour package through Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corp.

In September 2018, the Delhi government had launched the doorstep delivery of 40 public services to make things easy for the common man. In the first phase, people got certificates of marriage, caste, domicile, income, births and deaths among others at their doors.

Aam Aadmi Party leader Atishi told IANS: “The plan initially was to take things online but we realised that people find it more easy to call a number and get the services instead of doing things online.” The tenure of the Kejriwal government will end on February 2020. (IANS)
