The Delhi High Court on Tuesday directed the municipal corporations here to provide a geographic map of the city’s areas usually affected by vector-borne diseases like dengue.
A direction was also issued to the Centre by a Bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C. Hari Shankar to place before it a status report on whether any steps have been taken to develop the National Capital Region (NCR) as suggested by it in May this year.
The directions for mapping of dengue-affected areas and development of the NCR came during the hearing some PIL’s related to unauthorized constructions in the city.
“Give us a geographic mapping of the areas affected by dengue,” the court said, adding that the map will help it issue appropriate directions.
The Bench said mapping will help in better monitoring of the affected areas.
