About Dialogue & Development Commission of Delhi:

The present government of NCT of Delhi came to power in February 2015 on the basis of a manifesto crafted through an extensive series of ‘Delhi Dialogues’ with all sections of the society. With an innate belief that the process of dialogue should carry forth even after the formation of government, the Aam Aadmi Party led Delhi Government constituted the Delhi Dialogue Commission vide its Cabinet Decision no. 2131 dated 27th February 2015.

The Commission was formed with the aim to provide a unique model of collaborative and inclusive development in Delhi. It was set up to bridge the knowledge and capacity deficit in the government, and to take advantage of the vast pool of domain expertise that lies outside the government. The Commission was tasked with the role to consider ideas, identify the best practices and policies from around the world, and translate these into concrete recommendations to the Government of NCT of Delhi.

Since its formation, the Commission has submitted a number of policy reports and recommendations to the Government of NCT of Delhi on a wide array of development issues. These issues include infant health insurance scheme, establishment of a Health Care Corporation in Delhi, Delhi Solar Policy, leveraging technology for dengue vector surveillance, piloting of battery electric bus etc.

Subsequent to the Cabinet decision nos. 2175 dated 16.07.2015 and 2294 dated 24.02.2016 of the Council of Ministers of Government of NCT of Delhi, the Commission was renamed to Dialogue and Development Commission of Delhi.
