Inputs Sought on Policy Enforcement

Last year through your inputs via LocalCircles, efforts of Urban Development, the Ministry of Environment had finalized new rules for Waste Management listed below

However in the 2 year survey, 85% of you have said that these rules are not being enforced by your municipality. Kindly review and share what should be done to improve municipal enforcement of these rules.

We look forward to your inputs!

Let there be initiative by the Local bodies and people will automatically follow. more  
There is no management in waste management. Perhaps people handling such job do not have the know how. Training of these people is a must. In most places waste is dumped and no segregation is carried out. Only regulation will not help unless we train and supervise. Leave aside kitchen wastage, a huge problem is created by IT waste and there is no solution in sight. more  
I agree with Capt.Guru N.Misra's views.Stringent legislation should be enacted and simultaneously CCTV's also need to be installed to identify and penalise those who are dumping wherever they like. more  
I understand most (perhaps very very few people) are concerned about the ugly state of Delhi roads / markets - air included. I also believe lot of people have given very good ides and if we implement few of them with honesty results will be little better. I have few reservations - Can you believe our elected body are capable to do the job for us, if yes, why did it fail for 60 years?. Can you believe with out the hire and fire policy you can get your staff to give results as per your expectation? If yes - continue with the same set of rules for another 50 / 60 years, no problem. But if you want some results in near future we should change our line of action. We can have some kind of body / organization responsible for proper maintenance of our markets / roads, traffic management, garbage collection, street lights, toilets, safety, up keep of green areas, water bodies, reuse and recycle of waste, water harvesting and so on which we can hire for our locality / colony and in case not found the job done to our satisfaction - we can fire. MCD / State / Central Government to have no or very little power except to arrange for funds and statutory control / watch etc. Idea is simple - eliminate long process of tender, lot of man power, lot of supervision, lot of checks and cuts - but no real work. more
