7 shelter homes set up in Karnal

Karnal, December 30

In view of inclement weather, the Municipal Corporation has set up seven shelter homes, knows as "renbaseras", for homeless people in the city

It has made arrangements for beds, bed sheets, blankets and drinking water. Besides, adequate provisions have been made for electricity and sanitation. A caretaker has been deployed at each "renbasera".

MC Commissioner Vikram Singh reviewed arrangements at the shelter homes yesterday and interacted with people living there.

He said there were two permanent "renbaseras" in Prem Nagar and the Red Cross building, which could house 80 and 50 persons, respectively.

Besides, there were five temporary shelter homes — Sector 12 opposite the HSVP office, near the KCGMC, under the Kachwa railway bridge, behind the bus stand, and on the Meerut road chowk.

"The inmates expressed satisfaction over the arrangements. We have deployed employees, who will zero in on those sleeping along roads, under flyovers, bus stand, railway station and other places and shift them to shelter homes," the Commissioner added.

He said a register was being maintained at each shelter home to keep the record of people staying there. — TNS
