I extend my gratitude to the residents of East Delhi for giving me an opportunity to serve them. With its specific Geo-demographic formation, the EDMC has very limited source of income. We are committed to serve all sects of East Delhi and also to lead EDMC at the top level. When it comes to provide civic amenities to its people, the EDMC is working hard in the fields of health, primary education, maintaining sanitation, construction of roads, maintenance of greenery on roads and parks, providing vehicle parking’s facilities, despite its financial constraints. We are utilizing every pie of financial help/grants received under several schemes run by the Govt. of India. On the other hand, we are not getting our due grants from the Govt. of NCT of Delhi as recommended from time to time by the DFC. In spite of non-cooperative attitude of the State Government, we are trying hard to augment our income resources at our own level so as to providing better services to our citizens. In the current pandemic Covid-19 crises all over the world, the EDMC has shown its fighting instinct with the collective efforts of its employees (Specially Doctors, Nurses, Teachers, Health Workers and Sanitary Staff) by working day & night and also by vigorous campaigning for awareness among its residents about the measures to be taken to protect themselves from Covid-19 and other dreadful diseases like Dengue, Malaria etc. Which were already in existence and always creating challenge to the health & life of the residents. It will be my endeavour to make East Delhi as the best corporation in the country.See More
