New Delhi,13/09/18:Delhi International Airport Limited DIAL is unrolling from T-3 terminal of Indira Gandhi International Airport at New Delhi, costly 2000 rolls of carpet prepared through tireless work of four months by 320 workers using 20 weaving-machines at a unit near Pune for the prestigious airport-terminal opened at time of Commonwealth Games held at Delhi in the year 2010.
Even though these woven carpets are being unrolled at New Delhi Airport on complaints about difficulties faced in dragging trolley-bags, yet otherwise use of woven carpets must be totally banned because being unhygienic and also requiring costly washing frequently. It was indeed a funny and shocking aspect to see a patient-room in a private hospital of New Delhi having a woven carpet just to exhibit being luxurious hospital to attract rich clientele. There is no practical mechanism to check dust and dirt coming from shoes on such woven carpets not only from atmosphere but more importantly from shoes of common people walking on woven carpets.
Concerned ministries including of Environment and of Health apart from National Green Tribunal should issue immediate guidelines to impose a total ban on using woven carpets in public places including in private organisations.
