XII FYP                            :    Rs.24500.00 Lakh
Annual Plan 2012-13        :    Rs.5000.00 Lakh

The pace of urbanization in Delhi is of highest order resulting into conversion of rural villages into 135 urban villages.  As a result, the chaupals which were the Centre of all the social and cultural activities in rural villages were neglected and, thus, the conditions were deteriorate and dilapidated.   Keeping in view this fact, the Govt. of Delhi, in February-2000, decided to initiate renovation/improvement works of chaupals located in urban villages and the works shall be executed by the I & FC department from the budget of plan scheme “Development of Urban Villages”.  The criteria for renovation / reconstruction of chaupals is that it should be located on Government / Gram Sabha land and construction work limited to 400 sq. meters. and within Rs. 20 Lakh which was later on, during 2008, enhanced to Rs.50 lakh.


The urban villages were originally handed over to MCD by DDA for carrying out the various development works.  The development works like Metalling/ Premixing, Dense Carpeting, Brick Flooring, Drain, Cement Concrete, Kota Stone Flooring, Street Lighting etc. are being carried out in these villages for the improvement of civic services for better living environment.  Due to urbanization and development of the areas adjoining these villages, the activities as well as population of these villages, are increasing rapidly necessitating thereby up-gradation of civic amenities such as Dense Carpeting, CC Kota Stone Pavement etc. Moreover, with conversion of agricultural area into residential area by DDA, more villages tend to fall within the ambit of urban villages due to change in employment scenario in the surrounding area. Presently, there are 135 urban villages, wherein Development/Improvement of existing services are required to be carried out. The work will be assigned to different construction agencies and Urban Development Department will improve & monitor the development work in Urbanized Villages.

For 12th Five Year Plan an outlay of Rs. 245.00 crore is being for above mentioned Schemes which include Rs. 50.00 crore for Annual Plan 2012-13.
