The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has formed a dedicated committee to protect the assets created during the G20 Summit from theft and vandalisation.
According to NDMC vice-chairman Satish Upadhyay, 70 fountains are now under the vigilant care of two executive engineers, each in charge of 35 fountains.
“These engineers have been entrusted with the responsibility of ensuring the proper maintenance and functionality of these iconic fountains. NDMC has also renewed the annual maintenance contract for these fountains within its jurisdiction,” he added.
The NDMC has placed more than one lakh potted plants at various locations in its jurisdiction as part of the G20 beautification efforts. Upadhyay said that the plants will not be taken from their place at present and 30-35 security guards have also been deployed to take care of them.
A total of 441 CCTV cameras have been installed within the area under NDMC and are integrated through the Command and Control Centre. These CCTV cameras are instrumental in various aspects of NDMC services’ smooth functioning, he added.
To oversee and monitor all G20-related projects and initiatives, NDMC has established a high-level committee, which will be tasked with maintaining and managing the works undertaken during the G20 Summit.
