Demolition Drive in Delhi is UGLIEST City Improvement Option

May11, 2018 (C) Ravinder Singh ravinderinvent@gmail.com

Delhi is world’s Most Unplanned and Worst Managed City in the world – though top Civil Servants opt for Delhi based Centre Government so come from regions of the country. Politicians too come from many regions around Delhi – find Delhi to be million times better than their native places – ARE RESISTING TO CHANGE.

FIND NOTHING WRONG IN SLUMS, JAMS, HIGH COST OF COMMODITIES, MISMANAGED TRANSPORT, LAW & ORDER, PARENTS TESTED FOR SCHOOL ADMISSIONS, VENDORS, STINKING FRUITS & VEGETABLE SUPPLY, GARBAGE MOUNTAINS, SEWAGE IN RIVERS & DRAINS, WATER SHORTAGES, ROADS TOO NARROW FOR TRAFFIC & THAT TOO LARGELY USED FOR PARKING, FOUR WHEELER REGISTRATION UNRESTRICTED, AMBULANCES PREFER TO TAKE DISCHARGED PATIENTS OR VICTIMS TO HOME THAN IN CRITICAL NEED.

Abuse of RENT LAWS – worst in world WAS ADDED INCENTIVE TO NO CHANGE Attitude – A person may be paying Rs.100 PM rent than Rs.10,00,000 Current Market Rent. I found Multi-Level Hotels on Mud Brick made Ground Floor in old Delhi when Arjun Guest House Collapsed.

Worst of RENT LAWS was SUB-DIVISION OF TENANCY – A Shop in 1950 may have 20 SUB-DIVISIONS or PORTIONS or CLAIMANTS today. THIS RESTRICTED BUYING & SELLING OF COMMERCIAL PROPERTY WHEN OWNERS RIGHTS WERE ‘LIMITED’ ADDED TO STINK – Even business not making profit would continue to pay paltry rent than vacate it.

Demolition Drive in Delhi UGLIEST City Improvement Option

When DLF developed Hauz Khas six decades ago – it had no idea thatDelhi would expand 20 times in population, 1000 Times in GDP.Against few thousand cars – has over 3 million cars – over 10m automobiles.

Hauz Khas market as per DLF Approved Plan has 80% Residential and 20% Commercial & Shopping layout. THERE WAS NO NEED FOR EVEN THIS – SHOPS REMAINED VACANT FOR DECADES – BUT PRESENTLY 50 TIMES MORE SPACE IS OCCUPIED FOR COMMERCIAL USE YET IT & BPO NEEDS ARE MET BY GUGAON or NOIDA.

Even after each Market Plot has Doubled Floor Area – but now Residential space is not even 20%, against present Commercial Space within market – 5 Times more Commercial Space is Occupied in Roadside Homes.

Hauz Khas Market need be DEMOLISHED & REBUILD – 3-4 TIMES MORE COMMERICAL AREA – 8-10 LEVEL BUILDING WITH 20 Feet Stilts & Basement Parking Ready by 2020 – Re-Locate all Businesses to New Hauz Khas Market.
