New Delhi: A Delhi village, which has been bereft of the basic infrastructure despite located only a few kilometres from the country’s seat of power, would finally see the light of development. The Delhi government has finally decided to prepare a blueprint to provide all the basic facilities in Badarpur Khadar village. And all this after Dainik Jagran, in its May 8, 2011 edition, reported on the plight of the villagers.

The Delhi government has now drafted a development plan for Badarpur Khadar. A four bigha plot has already been allotted by the government to construct a school building in the village. Delhi State Industrial Development Corporation (DSIDC) will build the school.

As the proposed school building would take time in construction, government has planned to start primary schools under tents from this very session. On the same format moving dispensary vans would be started to take care of the villagers’ health.
Delhi government and Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) would provide alternate service of moving dispensary vans. To make a permanent dispensary, government has written to the MCD.

Two mini borewells has also been proposed for providing clean drinking water to the villagers.

In the development plan for Badarpur Khadar village, government has also decided to construct a community hall or Panchayat Bhawan, which would have three large halls for public use. This public hall will serve as temporary dispensary for the villagers.
According to Deputy Commissioner GL Meena all the projects for the development of Badarpur Khadar village will be completed by March 2012, except the school building.
