Welcome to our web site!

On this home page, we'll introduce our findings and highlight importance hosting this site.

Vasundhara Enclave is a cluster of Co-operative group housing societies located in East Delhi across Yamuna River. The land covering about 100 acres was originally low lying mostly used for farming. DDA took over the land and filled-up with garbage before handing over to group housing societies for construction. With passage of time now about 55 plus housing societies have completed the construction and about 5000 plus families are living. But the dumping of garbage in the peripheral low land around the colony has not been stopped. Mischievous rag pickers who rummage the heaps are frequently lighting the garbage. The garbage contains large quantity of plastic and polymer substances that do not burn fully but keep smoldering for long hours. During night hours the heavy fumes lie low on ground surface and enter the houses causing difficulty in breathing. Braving the menace my blood pressure levels have shot from 110/70 till a year back to170/110 now. I have spent innumerable sleepless nights in past five years of my stay in the colony. The malice lies with the corrupt practices of DDA. No Town Planner in the entire globe will consciously give a piece of land filled up with garbage for housing projects. First of all DDA should have filled-up the land with selected material and developed the colony. Secondly once when the area is inhabited, they should have stopped permission for dumping garbage around the colony. The continued practice of dumping garbage in front of 5000 families living in the colony is very cruel. I had contacted Delhi Police and Delhi fire Service for finding some solution to stop the burning of garbage in this manner. Delhi Police was not able understand the problem due lack of interest. Delhi Fire service also is reluctant to help in dousing the flames again as the effect of the smoke on the health of the residents is not their problem or dousing the smoldering garbage is not their duty as against a house on fire. I had written to several people occupying important positions on this basic issue of wanton destruction of Sanitation and criminal imposition of health hazard by irresponsible and vicious people of DDA and MCD. This practice has been continuing for several years and number of requests made to MCD Deputy commissioner (Shahadra south) Sh.Agarwal, DDA Dy Chairman Sh.Dinesh Roy, Chief Engineer (EZ)Sh.R.K.Govil has not yielded any respite from the torture.  Not satisfied with the practice of grabbing enormous amount of bribe money and siphoning off public funds on fake works, these people have decided to kill us residents by calculatedly dumping and burning garbage. I do not know how many other residents are suffering from medical problems triggered by the smoke of burning garbage. Ministry of Environment and Forests, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Ministry of Urban Development, are not even acknowledging my message. In this situation after suffering the menace for more than five years now let us find some response through this site.
