For this, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) will provide the funds to MCD for the rejuvenation and beautification of these 20 ponds.

STP will be installed near these ponds or the water from nearby STPs will be channelised to them.

Besides this rain water will also be channelized to these ponds which will help in recharging groundwater.

MCD will beautify these Ponds by developing a footpath around its periphery and installing gazebos, sheds, benches, etc. which will help citizens to use them as spots for rest and recreation and they will also become aware of the importance of water.
