The Master Plan, once amended, will give relief to several traders as their shops would be de-sealed.
In case there is no shopping centre in the vicinity, the local body may declare such areas as pedestrian shopping centres. The land owning agency has proposed that local shopping centres in areas such as Lajpat Nagar, Tilak Nagar and Kamla Nagar be redeveloped with enhanced Floor Area Ratio if the need arises.
Earlier, Centre has recommended amendments to Delhi Master Plan 2021, including shifting of pubs, clubs and restaurants from residential areas, Union Urban Development Minister said amid a huge turmoil in the national capital over the sealing issue.
The recommendations included uniform Floor Area Ratio (FAR), shifting of pubs, clubs and restaurants from residential areas and augmentation of infrastructure services such as water and sewage by concerned service providing agencies.
The outdoor unit of air-conditioning shall in no case extrude from the plotline/or to be placed on the rooftop. Exhaust duct shall not open directly towards the public lane or face the other residential plot. Restaurants, clubs, pubs shall not be allowed in the residential premises as part of mixed use.
The recommendations finalised after deliberations with the traders, Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) and other stakeholders will come for discussion in a crucial Delhi Development Authority (DDA) meeting, following which the Lt Governor will approve the same.
