The Deputy Commissioner Of Police (West Delhi),
DCP Office West Delhi,
Police Station Rajouri Garden,
Rajouri Garden,
Delhi - 110027.

Dear Sir,

Reference: Polluted air and smell from a Restaurant in DDA Residential Flats, Janak Puri.
Reference: DD No. 35 B, date 5th June 2016, Janakpuri PS.

We stay in Block C2B, Janak Puri. This is DDA Residential Housing. There is a problem of polluted air and bad smell in our house because of a Restaurant in the vicinity. The polluted air is a health hazard for us and the bad smell is a huge inconvenience for us. The polluted air will surely cause ailments, diseases. The bad smell is a huge irritation and is very agonising.

This is not the way to live. It is sad, bad, shameful that us peaceful, law abiding citizens are being tormented thus.

This problem has started from 24th May 2016. The Janak Puri Police Station had been informed about our predicament. Refer the Complaint submitted on 5th June 2016 at the Janakpuri PS. Attached find image of the same. Also find attached the Complaint text of the same in a Document file in case that is required. PCR at 100 was also informed earlier more than once. As a matter of fact, the intensity has now actually further increased from about ten days past. I have been informed that the fumes are now expelled from a Chimney or Duct within the DDA Shaft between the Flats 84 ABC and 85 ABC and this Chimney or Duct opens over the terrace. I have myself noticed that Duct. Probably that has compounded the problem.

Please get this Restaurant closed, that's it. This Restaurant is a health hazard for us. It is an inconvenience. Our Rights are being violated. Also, it is an infringement on our simple lives. I shall not mention here again what I have mentioned in the Complaint. Refer that communication. However I urge you again to impose sections or charge the MCD people also because in the first place Restaurants in DDA Flats are illegal. MCD can't open Restaurants wherever it feels like. This is DDA Residential Housing. Dear Sir, please understand that the expulsion of fumes from over the terrace or from the rear of these flats will keep causing us trouble.

In 2011-12 a similar problem was faced by us. At that time, I had written to the NHRC (National Human Rights Commission). The NHRC had sent a directive to the DCP West, Delhi Police and to the Commissioner, MCD. The point is that NHRC made it apparent or evident (or threw light to the fact) that this is indeed a Police matter.

And by the way, DDA Flat Shafts are sacrosanct in that they "cannot be intruded anywhere". Only plumbing (water supply and sewerage) pipes can come, and that too till a particular diameter. MCD knows about this. It is my suggestion to you that you personally ask an MCD person as to why this Chimney or Duct is not a violation of the Building Bye Laws (derived from the National Building Code Of India). In all probability expect a "wrong answer". There will be selective omission of facts, selective hiding of facts. Also expect manipulating and twisting facts by themselves. I say so because in 2011-12 they had provided a hoodwinking response to my grievance on their own website. This bit is additional information. Perhaps it helps somewhere. This fact (Chimney or Duct in Shaft) should be sent to the Urban Development Ministry and also the DDA. MCD is actually supposed to "make sure" that Bye Laws are being implemented and not being violated. And here, alas! MCD is itself criminalizing Delhi.

Yours faithfully,

The first one - photo of the stamped received back copy of the 5th June 2016 complaint submitted - one can find at https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-oJwF-ygAz6Q/WBJxdFzXO0I/AAAAAAAAAF8/nHnBrfI_owsmxObsOf_tuH_bPAdX7igCACLcB/s1600/Received%2BCopy.jpg and also via http://www.brieftakes.blogspot.com/2016/10/message-delhi-police-attached-tweet.html . The second one - text document of the same 5th June 2016 Complaint - was also sent to DCP West, just in case, so that they can easily copy paste the Complaint text (THEY CAN EASILY COPY PASTE THE COMPLAINT TEXT).
