Stop The Mega Mall in South Delhi Alaknanda #NoMall

    1. Petition by

      Ravi Kaimal

      India

The Delhi Development Authority has sold a prime community centre land to build a mega mall.

This is being built on a land meant for community facilities like a sports complex and a park. Shockingly, it is also in an area that is right in the middle of schools and residential homes.

This mega mall measuring an enormous 7,20,000 square feet and 85 feet in height has been proposed in an area that has heavy traffic and water problems.

This will affect safety, security and clean environment in Alaknanda, Chittaranjan Park and Greater Kailash areas. What’s worse is that many permissions were given without informing the public.

Many people across Delhi are not in favour of this construction on a land that was meant for a community centre, and have expressed serious concerns over it.

The mall would consume 72 million litres of precious water and reportedly produce close to 42 million litres of wastewater. 

The Union Minister of Poverty Alleviation, Mr. Ajay Maken has expressed concern over this project. The Leader of the opposition in Delhi, Mr. V.K. Malhotra, has confirmed in writing that this land was meant for community facilities, and yet the authorities have gone ahead with the plan.

As a resident of this area and a concerned citizen of Delhi, I am outraged at this disregard for residents' welfare. That’s why I started this petition on Change.org telling Minister of Urban Development, Mr. Kamal Nath and Lieutenant Governer of Delhi, Mr. Tejendra Khanna, to prevent the construction of this mall immediately.  

Please sign my petition. We need as many signatures as we can get on my petition to make sure that the Minister and Lt. Governor don't ignore our demands.

      Area already in Constraint should not be burdened with such a huge increase of demand for space & water. The people of the area will suffer badly.

      Because this would cause unnecessary traffic snarls and crowding near schools so it would be a hanging out place for older kids who instead of studying would prefer to be there instead an additional mall means more carbon footprints

      The huge residential area is connected with already congested, small road. A big mall here would completely cripple the infrastructure situation in the area. There are already malls in reasonable distance, people in this area definitely do not need this!!
