Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said his government will implement the 'Mukhyamantri Street Light Yojana' under which 2.1 lakh streetlight will be installed across the city to light up dark spots.

The three discoms will have the responsibility of installing them, he said. Each discom will have the job of installing 70,000 streetlights, the chief minister said.

Each street light will have a sensor that will light up after sunset, he said.

The streetlights will be installed on a similar model as that of CCTV cameras.

The scheme is likely to kick off from November 1. The MLAs will recommend the dark spots in their respective areas, he said.
