ISARD was appointed by IRG-IWMP, New Delhi to conduct the baseline survey, data entry and data analysis of this project . The main objective of the IWMP is to restore the ecological balance by harnessing, conserving and developing degraded natural resources such as soil, vegetative cover, and water. This enables multi-cropping and the introduction of diverse agro-based activities, which help to provide sustainable livelihoods to the people residing in the watershed area.
The study was proposed to understand the impact of Delhi's mass transit project (from Kyber Pass to Mayur Vihar) on the people who had been rehabilitated and resettled from the project site. The survey was conducted to determine the number of households whose income has been reduced as a result of resettlement, reasons for the same and mitigation measures taken by the government (slum and JJ department etc.) to improve the economic condition of the affected persons. The study also highlights the status of the infrastructure facilities like school, community centers, etc.
