Delhi being geographically situated in the middle of the country doesn’t have many options for water bodies. It only experiences the Yamuna which pass by through many localities in Delhi.
But it doesn’t offer any activities for Delhites as it has got too much polluted and even dried in most of the parts. So, Delhi is left with only lakes on the name of water banks.
One of the most popular Lakes Naini Lake in a posh colony Model Town is going to again get another lifeline. Maintained by the municipal corporation in collaboration with Delhi Tourism & Transport Department Corporation(DTTDC) is going to begin boating for Delhites and tourist. Initially, 20 boats will be deployed in the total lake area of 6.5acres.
Boating in Naini Lake was first started in 1991 with DTTDC only. But due to protest by RWA of Model Town in 2014, Municipal Corporation had to forsake the boating.
