DMRC conducts drive to raise awareness about benefits of vaccination

Monday, 14 June 2021 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

The Delhi Metro is organising a unique awareness campaign about the benefits of vaccination against coronavirus at metro’s construction sites across the national Capital Region (NCR).

As part of this week-long campaign, a series of Nukkad Nataks (street plays) targeting small groups with a limited number of workers are being organised at the construction sites since last Wednesday while ensuring social distancing and all other protocols, the DMRC said in a statement.

Professional artists who work in commercial movies, TV shows and web series have been roped in to perform Nukkad Nataks. Since most of the workers come from states like Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand, the shows are designed and written in different dialects spoken in rural parts of these states, so that the workers understand it better, it said.

Popular folk songs from these regions are being used in these shows where the actors also interact with the workers. Informative leaflets about vaccination benefits are also being distributed among the workers. All relevant information about the benefits of vaccination has been compiled in a very lucid manner in Hindi.  

“Approximately, 3,200 workers are currently working at DMRC’s construction sites across Delhi-NCR. The number is gradually increasing as the lockdown restrictions are lifted,” it said.

Vaccination drives have already been conducted at some of DMRC’s construction sites.

DMRC authorities are in touch with the local administrations and private healthcare providers to organise more vaccination drives at its sites.
