In letter to the deputy commissioners, Jung also directed them to check the condition of the schools run by Delhi government and the three municipal corporations in their areas.

“The officials have been asked to submit a report about the number of hospitals in their districts with the details of their condition and the number and strength of slums in their districts and the condition of basic amenities,” Jung said in a statement.

The officials have also been asked to submit the details of unauthorised colonies in their areas.

Number of water bodies in all the districts with details of available water in them, cases of encroachment on them and status report on reviving the water bodies have also been sought.

“The LG has sought the number of disaster prone buildings in all districts. The officials have to submit the report of any building collapse and the aid provided by the government to the deceased and the injured people,” he added.

Apart from these, the LG has sought reports on waterlogging in all districts, fair price shops, water tanker supply in areas where piped water is not available, traffic congestion, number of night shelters and details of old age pension beneficiaries in 11 districts.

Jung has also asked the deputy commissioner to oversee the de-silting of the drains and report within two days at his office if the silt is not removed within two days from the affected areas.
