It aims at making homes, offices, schools, and other commercial and residential spaces fully prepared to deal with earthquakes.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday said, "The last few weeks have taught us the importance of awareness, preparations, and timely action. That is why your government is announcing a new campaign to prepare the people of Delhi for the unlikely event of an earthquake."
