| Wednesday | 9th October, 2019
New Delhi: The Delhi Development Authority on Wednesday proposed a change in Master Plan of Delhi (MPD) 2021 under which fitness centres, including gyms and yoga facilities, would be allowed to operate in residential areas, officials said.
The decision was taken during the Authority meeting of the urban body chaired by Lt Governor Anil Baijal at the Raj Niwas here.
It said the move comes after considering various representations received for continuation of such facilities in residential areas of Delhi.
It has further been decided that from the date of notification, new fitness and wellness centres "shall only be allowed on ground floor or basement".
"Accordingly, the matter will be forwarded to the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA) for amendment in the Nazul Rules 1981," the DDA statement said.
