A plot measuring 1239.7 Sq.m which was lying vacant for a long time. It was contemplated earlier that this plot will be utilized for commercial purpose. We came to know when we attended a meeting with Vice Chairman- Delhi Development Authority about 4 years back. We objected for construction for any Commercial activity as there is already Shopping Complex, Cinema Hall affecting lot of Traffic problems in C.R. Park, G.K-II, Alaknanda etc. As such addition of a commercial establishment would further complicate traffic movement.

We therefore suggested to Shri. Ashok Kumar Nigam, Vice Chairman-DDA that this plot may be utilized for construction of an ideal “Old Age Home” with all modern facilities so that residents of C.R. Park & other areas who are otherwise well to do & they are not giving the attention required in old age, may take advantage. It was well taken by the Vice chairman and instructed the concerned officials to examine the matter as it is feasible to construct Old Age Home.

Subsequently, the matter was vigorously followed up by meeting Shri. A.K. Nigam alongwith our President, Dr. Nitish Sengupa. On the request from Vice Chairman a Plan for the Old Age Home prepared by our Architect was submitted to DDA. Now the matter is in advance stage the Social Welfare Deptt. of Delhi Govt. is to construct this Old Age Home. The required money for this plot has been deposited to DDA by the Social Welfare Deptt. of Delhi Govt for which the DDA will be handing over the possession of this plot to Delhi Govt. very soon.

Hopefully in near future the construction of Old Age Home will start. Prof. Kiron Walia, Hon’ble Minister of Social Welfare, Govt. of N.C.T of Delhi and Shri. Subhash Chopra, member of DDA helped us for processing this project.
