The ‘Dilli Gramodaya Abhiyan’ aims to develop infrastructure in urbanized villages and new urban areas of Delhi, allocating a fund of Rs 960 crore to the Delhi Development Authority (DDA). The initiative focuses on enhancing the quality of life for villagers, strategic planning, community participation, and equitable access to assets and opportunities.
