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.

Subject: Piped Natural Gas supply to Chittaranjan Park
With E.P.D.P’s efforts a d with the help of local elected representatives for the last 5 years for PNG connectivity to C.R. Park with Indraprastha Gas Ltd. & MCD, we are happy to state that I.G.L has started the digging work for laying the pipe lines with Alaknanda and C.R. Park. Earlier this proposal was dropped in the year 2005 which was revised in 2006 by the present Managing Committee of E.P.D.P Association with a D.O. letter from its President, Dr. Nitish Sengupta, I.A.S (Retd) and former M.P (Lok Sabha) to Shri. P. Banerjee, C.M.D, GAIL. For various reasons including the Commonwealth Games, the project got somewhat delayed by MCD by holding up the road cutting permission. EPDP’s consistent efforts with IGL & MCD, the clearance for execution of the Project has recently been cleared and work of digging for the main line started from today i.e. 3-11-2011. For technical reasons, the digging work for the pipeline has been taken up from Alaknanda area which will be very soon coming to C.R. Park. IGL Engineers have informed us that within next 4-5 months the pipe laying work in entire C.R. Park will be completed. (Letter from the C.M.D, GAIL to the President, E.P.D.P Association is enclosed alongwith a letter dated 10-7-2006 from I.G.L to E.P.D.P Association).

Subsequently Representatives of EPDP Association had a meeting with the officials of I.G.L urging them to complete the work as urgently as possible. It is understood from the discussion with them in next 6 to 7 months the entire areas of Alaknanda, C.R. Park, G.K.-II will be covered. The residents will get the benefit of Gas Pipe line. We have also been informed by the officials in another one and half month time they will start registration of the names who are interested to get advantage of it. The beneficiaries will have to deposit Rs.5, 000/- as security and Rs.1, 000/- for charges of the gas which is adjustable.
