Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Four projects of Municipal Council have been conferred the Skoch Award for Excellence 2014.

The projects include 24x7 call centre, City Wi-fi and Urja NDMC Women Uday.

These along with three other projects including Nomadic haat, Open gym and Beautification of Shankar Market were selected by the jury and awarded the Skoch Order-of-merit during the 37th Skoch Summit on "Minimum government, Maximum governance".

To redress complaints of people of the area, a 24x7 call centre cum control room has been opened at NDMC Palika Kendra.

NDMC launched city wi-fi facility in Khan market and Cannaught place in a bid to start free wireless internet service in its most upscale and expensive zone.

In a step towards women empowerment, NDMC has decided to establish a special unit, 'Urja', for unemployed women as a part of which they will be given skill training after which they will be employed in a factory setup for production of eatables and other goods of daily use.

Nomadic Haat is aimed at empowering and engaging the tribal and nomadic communities of Banjaras, Kalbeliyas, Bayariya, Gadiya Lohars, Jogis and Raibari by providing them with alternative livelihood.
