In an attempt to prevent the death of any homeless person in chilling Delhi cold weather, the Delhi govt. has made an arrangement where at least 19,000 people can be accommodated. The shelter will have basic facilities like drinking water and toilets.

  • There are 198 night shelters and 40 tents have been set up to accommodate around 19,000 persons.12291142_882067978557367_153521678701572453_o
  • Rain Basera- A mobile app developed by the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB) has been launched. People just have to send a pic of destitute they notice on the app with the address, the rescue team will be immediately on ground to take him/her to nearby night shelter.
  • App is for public to use, the responsibility is on citizens to ensure that no one dies in this cold.
  • 33,000 blankets, 14,000 durries, 11,500 jute mats, have been arranged for use at night shelters. Also, there are over 27,500 blankets in stock.12304354_882067998557365_4824995543606731016_o

The Logical Indian appreciates the initiative by Delhi government. Seeing the no. of deaths each year due to cold weather in north part of India, it is important that state govt. of states like Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Bihar and Chhatisgarh must ensure that proper no. of night shelters are built and homeless people are taken care of.
