1. COMMONWEALTH GAMES 2.DELHI THE DREAM CITY
Commonwealth Games The Organising Committee Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi came into being on 10 February 2005, as a registered society under the Societies It was resolved by the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) in the General Assembly held in Jamaica on 13 November 2003 to entrust the organising and hosting of the XIX Commonwealth Games to India.
The OC CWG Delhi 2010 has set itself the goal of conducting the best Commonwealth Games to date, including the provision of impeccable standards of service to athletes, officials and the general public, in close collaboration with its partners.
If the ambitious plans currently being finalised reach fruition, Delhi is to undergo a massive and hugely expensive makeover that will come close to finally realising its dream of being a world-class city. With the 2010 Commonwealth Games in sight and Rs 80,000 crore in its war chest, the capital hopes to transform itself into a world-class city that could become a role model for urban planning Delhi the Dream city
` Rs 30,000 crore to be spent on public transport Rs 4,500 crore to be spent on garbage disposal Rs 2,200 crore to be spent on games infrastructure Rs 800-1,000 crore annually to be spent on water However, going by past record-Delhi's status as the centre of Indian politics, with control over key areas of development divided between the state Government and the Centre, and the urban chaos that has resulted- these grandiose plans amount to building castles in the air
According to Plan 2010, however, all this will be history when the Delhi Government waves its magic wand for a Cinderella-like transformation of the city. This time, there is a credible difference. The Games have injected a new sense of unified purpose and commitment that has rarely been seen before, and the massive funding has huge potential to change the city.
Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit is optimistic. "By 2010, we will turn Delhi into a dream city which is beautiful, clean, green and world-class," she says. Till now, growth has been mostly accidental. The classy Delhi Metro, a mass rapid transit system, had been in the making for almost five decades and underwent 35 studies before finally taking off in 1998.
