ayurvedic dispensary were set up and made operational at NDMC Housing Complex, Rohini. With NDMC’s efforts and cooperation of various stakeholders, NDMC area is in a position to declare itself as a zero-polio area. Also, in the last four years not a single case of dengue has been reported in NDMC area. Sanitation and Solid Waste Management Sanitation and solid waste management is a big challenge for NDMC. Pressure of floating population, statutory requirement of segregation of garbage at source and responsibility of managing solid waste require new innovations, cooperation of various agencies and public participation. Eight garbage stations constructed on BOT basis were made functional during the year. These garbage stations have facility for segregation of garbage at inter-mediate stage. With the assistance of Chintan, a Non Governmental Organization, NDMC continued its support to rag pickers to segregate and recycle waste. Sewage Disposal and Drainage Work for augmentation and replacement of pre-independence sewer lines remained on track. Based on a detailed study by Tata Consultancy Services, the following schemes were completed during the year: (a) Laying of diversion sewer line of 250–300–400–450 mm dia for augmenting the sewerage system of part of Laxmi Bai Nagar; (b) Laying of sewer line at Kautilya Marg from intersection of Shanti Path to Panchsheel Marg; One of the important achievements was commissioning of the Pragati Vihar Sewage Pumping Station (SPS) by diverting the sewage flow from Copernicus Marg to Lodhi Road up to Pragati Vihar. With this connection, the sewer line laid about 10– 15 years back has been commissioned by diverting flow to Pragati Vihar SPS to make it operational. - 28 -

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
