  1. Delhi Govt can try to open classrooms as reading rooms for nominal prices, since there are already CCTVs. I think its worth trying on pilot basis if it doesn’t become a security issue.
    Also think Govt can consider E-bike sharing system together with making bike lanes/BRT, though not sure if such thing can be done in this term. Can also add some sort of slow self driven e-ricks into that for last mile. Just some thoughts
