"Under 'Green Park, Green Delhi', RWAs will take responsibility for developing all the parks in Delhi. We have allocated funds for the same. Rs 2.55 lakh has been allocated for the maintenance of developed parks," Rai said. He also added, "Water supply has also been an issue for maintenance of parks. Rs 3.5 lakh will be given for setting up a sewage treatment plant (STP)."  Parks that need to be developed have been checked and identified, he added.
