The heart of Chandni Chowk or its main area has received a complete makeover. The remodeling of the historical Chandni Chowk area has ultimately been completed with the scheduled inauguration dated April 17, by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Reportedly, an estimated sum of Rs.99 crores has been spent on the entire project. The project began on December 1, 2018, to bring back the historical glory of the area and had set a target to finish the project by November 2020. Allegedly, the plan was disrupted due to the pandemic and was delayed by a year. Public Works Department (PWD) Minister Satyendar Jain on 6 April, reviewed the redevelopment of Chandni Chowk with the inauguration day looming close. The minister ordered senior officials of the department to make a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for essential and emergency services at the revamped area where electric vehicles will function for the convenience of senior citizens. Satyendar Jain stated that Chandni Chowk is a historical site and has been beautified to promote tourism. He further talked about the responsibility of all, to maintain its beauty and to ensure that the situation in Chandni Chowk does not go back to how it used to be. The administration has put in big efforts to make Chandni Chowk look green and beautiful and a sight to behold. While reviewing the finished project, the PWD Minister discussed the new tourist attractions offered on the redesigned stretch from Red Fort to Fatehpuri Mosque. This stretch will also remain a non-motorized zone from 9 AM to 9 PM and the roads will be properly cleaned before 9 AM The Delhi government believes that the beautification of the stretch will provide a huge boost to the city’s tourism industry. The PWD minister revealed his suggestions to install more LED lights alongside planting high-rise saplings on the street to ensure feasibility to the shopkeepers. He was also informed that Chandni Chowk had been developed in four phases. For non-motorized vehicles, a pavement with an estimated 5 to 10 m has been built on either side of the road. A 2.5 m footpath has been constructed on either side of the road. Only the use of manual rickshaws will be permitted on the redeveloped stretch and these will be marked. The Delhi Police demanded 166 civil defense volunteers from the PWD Minister for action against motor vehicles entering the restricted area mentioning manpower constraints till CCTVs become functional.
