Capital issues..
Wake up call for Delhi administration
14/12/2006

The Delhi Human Development Report 2006 published by United Nations Development Program in collaboration with the Delhi Government puts up some startling facts. The state having a per capita income that is around 2.5 times the national average is also the state which has a housing shortage of 300,000 units. Around 38% of these households (barring the slums) consist of single room units! The report states that about 100,000 people are homeless in the city and the visible cornucopias of Delhi are only hiding the true picture.

The other disquieting trend that the report reveals is that Delhi contributes 24.4% of all crimes, 24.4% of rapes and 17.6% of dowry deaths in the country. According to the Public Perception Survey 2005, only 19% of the residents feel safe in the state and 90% feel public transport isn’t safe for women. That’s surprising for a state which gloats over a 55,000 strong police force. The report states that discrimination against women is rampant and Delhi with a sex ratio of 821 is lowest in the ranks. Furthermore, it reveals that inspite of having one of the best hospital networks in India (646 hospitals, 993 dispensaries, & 250 maternity homes), ‘health for all’ remains a distant dream. As the capital, Delhi significantly represents everything that’s wrong with India. One can only wish the authorities would wake up and take action.
