1) Delhi Government to give an appropriate job to Late Rohit Vemula’s brother :

The cabinet on Wednesday decided to give an appropriate job to the brother of Late Rohith Vemula, as and when he applies for the same.

Earlier in the day, the family members and friends of Hyderabad University scholar, late Rohith Vemula had met the Delhi Chief Minister Mr Arvind Kejriwal at his residence.

His mother requested the Chief Minister to provide a government job to the younger brother of late Rohith, since the family does not have any source of income.

Mr Kejriwal had assured the family of considering their demand.

2) Extension of the scheme of paying Rs one Crore ex-gratia :

The cabinet extended the scheme of paying Rs one Crore ex-gratia to the families of those defence personnel who lose their lives on account of operations, calamities and disaster.

Earlier, the cabinet had approved the scheme of paying Rs one Crore ex-gratia to war widows, war disabled, prisoners of war (PoW), Missing in war/operations etc for Defence personnel/Delhi Police/Home Guards/Civil Defence etc on 01.04.2015.

3) To control air pollution in Delhi arising out of dust on roads, the cabinet approved the PWD proposal for comprehensive maintenance of roads :
One of the major causes of air pollution in Delhi is the fine suspended particulate matter (PM 2.5 and PM 10) due to dust on roads and construction sites.
The dust gathered on roads due to improper or non-cleaning of roads is compounded further by lakhs of vehicles running on Delhi roads.
Manual sweeping of roads contributes further to rising levels of air pollution since fine particles fly off during sweeping and remained suspended on the surface thereafter.
In view of the existing situation, the cabinet approved the proposal authorizing the PWD to carry out mechanized sweeping of PWD roads to begin with, and introduce Mechanised Stack Parking System on PWD roads.
The expenditure for this work shall be borne under the capital head of Roads and Bridges.

4) Policy for utilization of 77 government school playgrounds before and after school hours as well as on holidays, strictly for outdoor sporting activities by the local community of respective areas :
The Cabinet approved the Department of Education’s proposal to allow 77 playgrounds of government schools which are run in single shifts, for outdoor sports activities for the students and youth of respective areas.
The playgrounds will be allowed for use to entities like sports associations and clubs, strictly for organising sporting events. Individuals interested in athletics can also use these premises so also can those interested in training and coaching students.
The permission for using these playgrounds will be given by the concerned District Deputy Director of Education on a written proposal forwarded by concerned Heads of Schools.
The Department of Education has pointed out that students and youth of Delhi do not have enough open spaces for participating in sporting activities. (ENDS)
