He said that after regularization, an average salary of Rs 32,000 will be assured, while some people will also get a higher level. Additionally, the cashless health scheme of NDMC, LTC, promotion opportunities and the right to apply for NDMC government houses will be assured.

Shah also inaugurated 120 new flats in Pushp Vihar Housing Complex among other projects including upgradation as well as beautification of Ranjit Singh flyover and Safdarjung flyover.

Shah said before 2014, there was no government policy for urban development.

However, after 2014, Prime Minister Modi took responsibility for development across all the fields and formulated a comprehensive, result-oriented and integrated urban development policy, which is based on 5 pillars- Governance, Rejuvenation of Infrastructure, Cleanliness, Welfare of urban poor and Promotion of Healthy Competition between cities.

Along with this, the Government of India worked towards the upgradation of the infrastructure of the city through several schemes, such as Amrut Mission, Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) Act, the metro network and electric buses, thus helping to improve the infrastructure and environment of the city.

He said that the central government under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi has also taken care of the cleanliness of the city through the promotion of initiatives like green energy, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and the construction of public toilets, clean energy, solar rooftop and LED lights.

Shah said that houses have been built for the welfare of about 1.5 crores of urban poor.

Under the Pradhan Mantri Swanidhi Yojana, the street vendors have been made self-reliant while through digital transactions, they have been connected with banking facilities so that they could easily transact money.

Several dignitaries including Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Vinay Kumar Saxena, Union Minister of State for External Affairs Meenakshi Lekhi and Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla were present on the occasion. (ANI)
