The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) will redevelop three parks in the city under the supervision of the Archeological Survey of India (ASI), according to a statement issued by Raj Niwas on Friday.

“In line with Lieutenant-Governor V.K. Saxena’s efforts to convert the Capital into a ‘City of Heritage’, the DDA will now be undertaking the work of conservation, restoration, rejuvenation and redevelopment of the Mehrauli Archaeological Park, Sanjay Van and Shalimar Bagh, at its own cost, under the overall supervision of ASI,” the statement read.

The three parks have several ASI-protected monuments, which were lying in a state of neglect. A memorandum of understanding (MoU) will be signed between the DDA and the ASI within the next one week, it said.
