AAP Manifesto Tracker



Action Plan




Janlokpal Bill:
Aam Aadmi
Party resolves to legislate the Delhi Jan Lokpal Bill after coming to power. This will ensure a
time-bound investigation in matters of corruption. The Delhi Lokpal will have the power to initiate investigations and
prosecution against those charged with corruption. A Citizens’ Charter shall
be introduced in all government offices in Delhi. Whistleblowers will be
provided protection and awarded for their contribution toward creating a just

Swaraj Bill: Aam
Aadmi Party will legislate
the Swaraj Act to devolve power directly to the people. Decisions affecting
the local community will be taken by citizens and implemented by their
Secretariat. A Citizen Local Area Development (C-LAD) Fund will be given to
every Mohalla Sabha and
Resident Welfare Association, ensuring funds and functions in the hands of
the community.




Full Statehood for Delhi: Acting within the constitutional framework our government will
use its moral and political authority to push for full statehood for Delhi.
This will ensure that institutions such as the DDA, MCD and Delhi Police will
be accountable to the elected government of Delhi. This way land will be made
available for the common man, there will be greater synchronization and
shared purpose among civic services with regard to service delivery and the
law and order machinery will be accountable to the citizens.




Electricity Bills to be
reduced by half:
An Aam
Aadmi Party government will keep its promise of
reducing electricity bills by half. A more efficient, transparent and
accountable system to regulate and audit the power generation and
distribution companies is the need of the hour and AAP will do everything
within its command to achieve that. Discoms should
purchase power from economical sources and wriggle out of expensive and
unsustainable Power Purchase Agreements. AAP will take measures to provide
relief from rising power bills, namely generating cheaper electricity,
improving transmission efficiency, fixing billing defects and correcting
meter defects.




CAG Audit of Power Discoms: We will conduct a comprehensive performance audit of discoms by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India. Discoms shall also be brought within the ambit of the RTI
act. We will ensure that the citizens of Delhi do not have to bear the burden
of soaring power tariffs. Initially we will provide subsidy that would go not
to the power discoms but to Delhi Transco, a
state-owned transmission company which has unpaid bills of Rs 3,500 crore to be paid by
the discoms. This money will help Delhi Transco
upgrade and augment its transmission capacity, which is in a bad state at
present. The lack of funds at Transco’s disposal is one of the main reasons
for the frequent power outages in the state. After the audit results are
tabled in the assembly, power tariffs will be restructured.




Delhi’s Own Power
We will put up Delhi’s
own power station at the pithead and comprehensively solve Delhi’s
electricity problem in the long run by being able to meet peak power
consumption of 6200MW. We will also ensure that the Rajghat
and Bawana plant are efficiently utilized.




Introduce Competition
Amongst Discoms:
AAP reiterates the promise made in its December 2013 Delhi
manifesto of providing consumers the right to choose between electricity
providers. We will introduce competitive distribution, which will provide
better services and lead to lower tariffs.




Delhi To Be Made A Solar
AAP will facilitate a
phased shift to renewable and alternate sources of energy. Incentives will be
given to households, housing societies, enterprise and industry to gradually
switch over to renewable energy. We are committed to ensuring that 20 percent
of Delhi’s energy needs are met through solar energy by 2025.




Water As A Right: AAP will provide Water as a Right. It will provide universal
access to clean drinking water to all citizens of Delhi at an affordable
price. The Delhi Jal Board Act will be amended to make clean drinking water a
right of the people. AAP will make a time bound plan of action for covering
all residents of Delhi with piped water and sewage network in all parts
irrespective of their legal status. There will be no discrimination between
planned/non-planned; authorized/ non-authorized; regularized/ non-regularized;
city or village. Within five years piped water connections will be made
available to as many as 14 lakh households (50 lakh people) in Delhi that do
not have a piped water connection at present.




Free Lifeline Water: AAP will ensure free lifeline water of up to 20 kiloliters
(20,000 liters) to every household per month through a Delhi Jal Board’s
(DJB) metered water connection. This scheme will be extended to group-housing




Fair and Transparent
Water Pricing:
AAP will provide
universal access to potable water to all its citizens of Delhi at a
sustainable and affordable price. The mandatory annual 10 percent hike in
water tariffs will be abolished and any further hike will be made only after
due consideration. The AAP government will abolish the C-1A (B) category to
provide relief to households that run small shops from their residence (less
than 100 square feet) for their livelihood for which they are charge
commercial rates in spite of the fact that they are not using water for
commercial purposes.




Water From Munak Canal: AAP will ensure the firm implementation of the High Court order
that says Delhi is entitled to extra raw water from Haryana in the Munak canal, an issue on which the BJP government
in Haryana and at the Centre have
been dithering.




Augmenting Water
Our government will
preserve and replenish local and decentralized water resources, will initiate
schemes for rainwater harvesting, recharge of wells, watershed development
and soil-water conservation. AAP will revive Delhi’s water bodies like lakes,
ponds and baolis, among others, by rainwater
recharging and maintaining them in partnership with Mohalla




Crackdown On Water Mafia: AAP is committed to clamping down on Delhi’s powerful water
mafia working under the patronage of political leaders. AAP will put in place
a transparent tanker water distribution system by implementing
state-of-the-art techniques. The schedule of tankers operating in different
localities would be made available online and on mobile phone. Private
tankers will be allowed to operate under the guidelines framed by our
government. This will protect the consumers from exorbitant pricing and
illegal practices of private tanker operators.




Revive The Yamuna: The Yamuna River has been part of the collective memory of Delhi
for a long time but this lifeline is dying. We will ensure 100 percent
collection and treatment of Delhi’s sewage through an extensive sewer network
and construction of new functional sewage treatment plants. Discharge of
untreated water and industrial effluents into the river Yamuna will be
strictly prohibited.




Promote Rainwater
The AAP government will
throw its weight behind rainwater harvesting and strongly push it in a
top-down manner. Families that adopt rainwater harvesting shall be termed
water- friendly families. The government will provide incentives to families
who do so.




Build 2,00,000
Public Toilets:
AAP will build two lakh
toilets across Delhi: about 1.5 lakh toilets in slums and JJ clusters and
50,000 toilets in public spaces, of which 1 lakh toilets will be for women.
These toilets will be concentrated in public spaces and slum areas. We will
construct eco-toilets to save water.




Better Waste Management: AAP will adopt and encourage the use of good practices in waste
management techniques from across the world. We will encourage recycling by
segregation of biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste at the household
level. Littering or disposal of construction debris in public places will
attract a heavy fine. We will enforce the ban on plastic bags in the city.




Five Hundred New
Government Schools:
AAP will build 500 new
schools with a special focus on secondary and senior secondary schools to
ensure that every Delhi child has easy access to quality education.




Higher Education
Guarantee Scheme:
Students who wish to
pursue any diploma or degree course after finishing Class 12 from any school
in Delhi will be given bank loans with the government standing as a
guarantor. Students will not be required to furnish any collateral and the
scheme will be universal in nature regardless of a student’s financial
background. The loan will cover both tuition fees and living expenses. The
loan repayment schedule will carry a moratorium period covering the years
required to finish the course and one year thereafter to find a job. Under
this scheme no loan request will be rejected.




Twenty New Degree
AAP will open 20 new
colleges under Delhi administration on the outskirts of the city in
partnership with the villages of Delhi. Further we will double the existing
seat capacity of the Delhi government administered colleges including Delhi’s
flagship university, the Ambedkar University.




Regulate Private School
We will regulate private
school fees by publishing the fee structures and accounts online. Capitation
fee will be abolished.




Transparency in Schools
AAP will bring in
complete transparency in Nursery and KG admissions. To streamline the
admission process, we will use a centralized online system for nursery
admissions, removing avenues for corruption.




Ramp Up Government
Schools to Provide Quality Education:
AAP is committed to improving the standard of government
schools so that all citizens of Delhi have access to high quality of
education. Every school will have sufficient functional toilets built,
especially for girls. A sufficient budget will be given at the discretion of
the principal for lights, fans, blackboards and other essential
infrastructure. Teaching and learning infrastructure including computers and
high-speed Internet connectivity will be made fully functional in every school.
Number of DTC buses will be increased in order to service private schools so
that it cuts down on the wait times at regular DTC bus stops. Seventeen
thousand new teachers will be hired to maintain full staff strength at
government schools.




Increased Spending on
Education and Healthcare:
Education and Health
will be AAP’s top priority. The total budgetary allocation will be increased




Expand Healthcare
We will create 900 new
Primary Health Centers (PHCs) and 30,000 more beds in Delhi hospitals, out of
which 4,000 will be in maternity wards. We will ensure that Delhi conforms to
the international norm of five beds for every 1000 people.




Quality Drugs For All At
Affordable Price:
Pharmaceutical drug and
equipment procurement will be centralized to ensure zero corruption. Generic,
affordable and high quality drugs will be made available to the public.




Adequate Street Lighting: Seventy percent of Delhi’s streetlights do not work. Unlit
streets become scenes of crimes particularly against women. AAP will ensure
a100 percent lighting of streets across the city so that no miscreant or
anti-social activity goes unnoticed.




Effective Last Mile
AAP will provide
effective last mile connectivity in Delhi’s public transit system, which will
play a role in reducing the number of crimes against women. An effective
combination of shared autos, metro feeder services and e-rickshaws will be
used to provide efficient last mile connectivity by fixing and delimiting
routes. This will be synced with metro and bus timings so that there is a
working connection to each neighborhood from nodal points.




CCTVs in Public Spaces
and Buses:
AAP plans to install
CCTV cameras in DTC buses, bus stands and in crowded places as a deterrent
against crime. AAP will ensure that women can go about their jobs in the city
free of stress while travelling by public transport.




Speedy Justice through 47
Fast-Track Courts:
AAP will strongly push
for the creation and completion of fast-track courts, which are dedicated to
handling cases of sexual assault and other crimes against women. AAP will
operationalize 47 new courts that it had commissioned in January 2014 to
ensure speedy justice. If required, the courts will be run in two shifts so
that the cases involving crimes against women are heard and trials completed
within six months.




Empower Delhi Lawyers and
New judges will be
appointed. We will make provisions for affordable housing for government
counsels and lawyers practising in lower courts.
The government will streamline existing government medical schemes to ensure
maximum coverage of legal functionaries.




Women’s Security Force: AAP will set up Mahila Suraksha Dal or Women’s Security Force made up of a
10,000 strong Home Guard who are currently forced to work as servants,
drivers and cooks at the residences of senior officers and ministers. AAP
will also use 5,000 bus marshals to prevent and deter crime on public




Suraksha Button: Our government will provide a Suraksha/SOS button on every
mobile phone. We will work towards its connectivity to the police, nearest
PCR van, relatives and volunteer community.




Governance On The Mobile
All government services
and forms will be made available online and on the phone. Data on government
projects, performance, accounts and personnel will be posted online. This
will bring transparency and accountability in governance.




Delhi’s Villages To
Receive Special Attention:
Decisions regarding the
development of Delhi’s villages will be taken by Gram Sabhas,
which will be granted special untied Village Development Funds to be utilized
according to their priorities. Those engaged in agriculture and animal
husbandry will receive incentives and infrastructural support as is done in neighbouring states. We will provide sports facilities in
villages to encourage young adults to pursue sports. Connectivity to rural
Delhi will be enhanced through increased bus and metro services.




Pro-Farmer Land Reform: Section 33 and 81 of the Delhi Land Reform Act, which put
unjust restrictions on farmers’ rights over their land, will be removed. No
land will be acquired in Delhi’s villages without the consent of the Gram
Sabha. Strong pressure would be exerted on the Central government to remove
unnecessary restrictions regarding land use in villages.




Wi-Fi Delhi: We will make Wi-Fi freely available in public spaces across
Delhi. Citywide Wi-Fi can help in bridging the digital divide. It will also
provide an impetus to education, entrepreneurship, business, employment, and
also tie in with women’s safety initiatives.




Delhi To Be Made A Trade
And Retail Hub:
AAP will formulate
trader-friendly policies and streamline rules and regulations for setting up
and running businesses. We will simplify compliance and licensing for traders
and put in place a system of single window clearance. We will also ensure
that starting a trade or business in Delhi takes a maximum time of one week.
As vital stakeholders the participation of traders in the framing of trade
policies will be encouraged.




No FDI In Retail: Our government will continue with its decision of not allowing
FDI in retail in Delhi.




Lowest VAT Regime: Delhi will have the lowest VAT regime in India. We will
simplify VAT and other tax structures. One portion of the VAT collected from
every locality and market will be used for the maintenance and upgradation of
that market to foster business and trade.




End of VAT Raids And
Inspector Raj:
We will put an end to
raid culture and inspector raj. Only under exceptional circumstances will a
raid be permitted with the prior approval of senior officials.




Simplifying VAT Rules: AAP will simplify VAT rules, processes and forms. The 30 page
long VAT form will be crunched into one page for traders. All communication
with the concerned department will be online. Licenses will be applied for
and received at home.




Delhi Skill Mission: AAP will promote vocational education and skill development of
Delhi’s youth in schools and colleges, to bridge the real skill gap in Delhi.
We will create the first ever Delhi Skill Mission to train and enable one
lakh youth per year for the first 2 years, ramping up to five lakh youth per
year for the next 3 years.




Create 8 Lakh Jobs: AAP will create eight lakh new jobs in the next five years. AAP
will facilitate innovative and private startup accelerators to provide
support to entrepreneurs. We will create an ecosystem that enables private
industry to create more jobs.




Delhi To Be Startup Hub: The government will encourage startups by setting up business
and technology incubators in universities and colleges. As a pilot project,
we will also create three million square feet of affordable business
incubation space.




Contractual Posts To Be
AAP will fill 55,000
vacancies in the Delhi government and autonomous bodies of the Delhi
Government on an immediate basis. 4,000 doctors and 15,000 nurses and
paramedics will be made permanent.




Emphasis On Social
AAP will implement a
flexible and fair labour policy. Our policy will
ensure social security for workers in the unorganized sector; regulate wages,
services and working hours of domestic workers and improve work conditions of
rag pickers. Local Mohalla Sabhas
will provide licences to street vendors and hawkers
in designated spaces.




Reducing Pollution: Delhi Ridge, the lung of the city, will be protected from
encroachment and deforestation. Environmentally appropriate afforestation
would be carried out in all parts of Delhi in collaboration with the local Mohalla Sabhas. We will acquire
mechanized vacuum cleaning vehicles to clean the city. Public transport will
be improved to reduce the number of cars on the road. Additionally,
incentives will be provided for low emission fuels like CNG and electricity.
Government will encourage car-pooling and will crackdown on fuel adulteration
to reduce pollution.




Unified Transport
AAP will formulate
holistic transport policies for all forms of transport including the metro,
buses, auto rickshaws, rickshaws and e-rickshaws. A ‘Unified Transport
Authority’ will be established for this purpose.




Large Scale Expansion in
Bus Services:
We will expand bus
services in the city on a massive scale, adding at least 5,000 new buses to
the city fleet in five years. This will reduce the cost of transportation and
pollution in the city.




Just And Fair Policy For
E-rickshaw drivers of
Delhi spent many months mired in confusion. They lost their livelihood for
months due to the BJP’s policy paralysis. AAP will formulate a clear policy
and standards for the ownership and operation of e-rickshaws, keeping safety
aspects in mind.




Metro Rail 2.0: We will collaborate with the Indian Railways to extend and
develop the Ring Rail service in Delhi. AAP will also work towards
large-scale expansion of the Delhi metro, especially in rural areas. Senior
citizens, students and persons with disability will be provided concessional
passes on buses and in the metro.




Fair Arrangement for Auto
The number of auto
rickshaw stands will be increased. We will facilitate fast bank loans for the
purchase of auto-rickshaws. Special trainings will be conducted for auto
drivers to improve their overall conduct. The interests of commuters will be
protected by taking strict action against auto drivers in case of violation
of laws or misbehaviour. At the same time, we will
prevent harassment of auto rickshaw drivers by the police.




Freehold Of Resettlement
The Aam
Aadmi Party proposes a simple solution of
conferring freehold rights to resettlement colonies. Original allottees will receive ownership of their plots for just Rs. 10,000. Those who are not original allottees will get the ownership rights of their plots
for less than Rs. 50,000 depending on their plot
size. The cumbersome multi-page form will be simplified and condensed into a
single page form.




Regularization And
Transformation Of Unauthorized Colonies:
We will provide registration rights with regard to property and
sales deeds in resettlement colonies. Further, we will provide water and
sewer lines, electricity, schools and hospitals in a systematic and phased
manner. Multi-pronged action to make available these basic necessities is the
only way of empowering unauthorized colonies, which is something that has
never been attempted by the BJP or the Congress. Within one year of our
government formation, these unauthorized colonies will be regularized and
residents will be given ownership rights.




Affordable Housing For
We will construct
affordable housing for lower income groups. Over 200 acres of land is
currently lying vacant with the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board that
can be used for affordable housing.




In Situ Development of
Slum dwellers will be
provided plots or flats in the same location as the existing slums. If that
is not possible, they will be rehabilitated in the closest possible location.
The Mohalla Sabha will
plan the rehabilitation process and monitor its implementation. Until such
rehabilitation is completed, the slums will not be demolished under any
circumstances. Facilities for drinking water, sanitation and cleaning of
sewage canals will be provided in all slums. Streets and lanes in slums will
be repaired and converted into pucca roads.




Taking Care Of Our Senior
The government will
initiate a universal and non-contributory old age pension system immediately.
A minimum dignified amount indexed to inflation will be provided. Delays in
disbursement and arbitrary decisions regarding pensions will be eliminated.




Controlling Price Rise: In the retail and wholesale business, stringent measures will
be taken to prevent hoarding and profiteering. Our government will use the
its full strength to stop black market operations, hoarding and speculative
trading to curb the rising prices of vegetables, fruits and other essential
commodities. Ration shops and the public distribution system will be
corruption-free and shield the Aam Aadmi from rising costs.




Drug-Free Delhi: AAP wishes to make Delhi a completely drug-free state. We will
prevent drug trafficking by means of tight monitoring and ensuring strict
punishment for the guilty. The number of de-addiction centers shall be
increased and mental and psychiatric support for rehabilitation purposes will
be provided. We will also ensure that effective counseling is easily
available in schools for adolescents.




Empowering The Disabled: We are committed to protecting the rights of Persons with
Disability (PwD), and hope to make Delhi an
exemplar for the rest of India. AAP will ensure implementation of the 3
percent reservation for persons with disability. We will strive to make
education truly inclusive by hiring special educators in government schools.
AAP will help children with disability get admission into schools and
colleges and ensure financial support to institutions working especially for
their needs.




Justice For Victims Of
Anti-Sikh 1984 Carnage:
The 1984 anti-Sikh
carnage was one of the lowest points in the history of Delhi. Those
responsible continue to roam scot-free. The Aam Aadmi Party understands the feeling widespread in the
Sikh community that they have been denied justice. Further, the fact that the
BJP-led government at the Centre still feels the need to constitute a
committee to decide whether an SIT is needed or not on this issue is
mystifying. We promise to notify the SIT that we had ordered in January 2014
to reinvestigate the 1984 anti-Sikh killings, particularly the involvement of
high profile Congress leaders. Cases where investigations were not carried
out properly or witness testimonies not recorded will be reopened.




Respecting Our
Delhi is home to a large
number of ex-servicemen and women from the Armed Forces. AAP will stand by
the nation’s ex-servicemen in their fight for “One Rank, One Pension”. We
will ensure the existing quota in government jobs for ex-servicemen is filled




Development And Equality
For All Minorities:
The recent communal
tension witnessed in Delhi is totally out of sync with the social fabric of
the city. We stand firmly against attacks on places of worship and
inflammatory speeches across Delhi. Upholding the spirit of Swaraj, Mohalla Sabhas will set up peace committees to ensure harmony in
their respective neighborhoods. We will bring transparency in the functioning
of Delhi Waqf Board and ensure that encroachments
on Waqf property by private parties as well as the
government are removed.




Dignity To The Safai Karamchari: AAP will end contractualisation in “safai karamchari” posts and
will regularize existing employees. Workers who enter sewers will be provided
with protective gear, masks and appropriate equipment. Like fire fighters,
they will receive medical insurance. To help in their career advancement, safai karamcharis will be
provided assistance in education and training. On the death of a “safai karamchari” on duty, Rs. 50 lakh will be given to the bereaved family.




Ensuring The Rights Of
The Marginalized:
We will ensure that
policies of reservation concerning the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and
Other Backward Caste sections are enforced in Delhi government jobs.
Entrepreneurs from Scheduled Castes will be provided zero or low-interest
loans to set up businesses. Procedures for obtaining caste certificates will
be simplified. We will take steps to end the discrimination against and
harassment of denotified and nomadic communities in
Delhi. The long neglected transgender community will be provided access to
health, education and appropriate identity cards that will ease their
engagement with institutions.




Promote Sports Culture: We will create new sports facilities, improve the existing
infrastructure and provide coaching assistance to sportspersons. We will open
for the youth Delhi’s sports stadiums and complexes that at present are lying
underutilized. More than 3000 government school playgrounds will also be made
available to the local community after school hours.




Promoting Punjabi,
Sanskrit And Urdu:
We will provide
second-language status to Urdu and Punjabi. An adequate number of teachers
will be employed for teaching Urdu and Punjabi. Research in Urdu and Punjabi
shall be encouraged in various Delhi state universities. Study and research
in Sanskrit will also be encouraged.




Preserving Our Heritage
and Literature:
The Delhi Public Library
Network, which presented a vibrant public space accessible to all and
encouraged a culture of reading and curiosity about one’s social context,
will be enhanced. A public library or community-reading space will be created
in every constituency of Delhi.
