The Delhi Cabinet has given a green signal for the development of an online system that would grant permission for road digging projects.
The process of laying underground water and sewer lines and electric and optical fibre cables will be speeded up in the national capital, with the Delhi government deciding to grant permission to dig and cut the roads online.
The Delhi Cabinet has given the go-ahead for developing a system to give online permission for road cutting to be executed on the PWD roads. In March this year, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had announced that his government would fulfil the goal of supplying piped water to all households in the city by 2017.
The online system will ensure quick approval from the PWD for digging its roads for laying water pipelines, execution of repair works and others. PWD Minister Satyendar Jain said through the online system the departments concerned, including municipal corporations, will be able to get the permission within a few days of applying to dig the roads for executing the projects.
