    Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri lauded over the fact that around 1,100 Rohingyas would be moved to EWS flats in Delhi's Bakkarwala area.
    The former IFS officer also said that the Rohingya refugees would be provided with the unique ID of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
    ANI had earlier reported that a high-level meeting was chaired by Delhi's Chief Secretary in this regard, with senior officials from the Delhi government and police in attendance.
    Officials last month had emphasised the fact that around Rs 7 lakh was spent on the rent for Rohingya refugees' tents in the Madanpur Khadar area since they moved there after the fire incident in the camps they lived in earlier.

    ANI further reported that these buildings would be handed over to FRRO (Foreign Regional Registration Offices), which will felicitate the relocation of Rohingya into these flats.
    During the pandemic, NDMC provided these flats to the AAP-led Delhi government to isolate suspected coronavirus infection cases.
