Delhi PWD


The Delhi PWD is a unique arm of CPWD.  Till the grant of Statehood to Delhi the works for Delhi administration were carried out by two zones of CPWD. DAZ-1 & DAZ-II, as they were called were later renamed as PWD Zone-1 and PWD Zone-II after the UT of Delhi was granted Statehood. Subsequently two more zones were created to look after the growing workload of the PWD. Thus in all 4 Zones execute all works for the Delhi Government under the overall charge of an E-in-C. The Delhi PWD works independently under the administrative control of the Delhi Government except for specific functions. All recruitment, promotions, transfers too and from the PWD to CPWD, quality assurance functions, vigilance functions are carried out by CPWD wings.


Because of limited geographical area of operation, a unified system of administrative and technical control the PWD Zones are able to handle a much larger workload than other zones of the department. Over the years the PWD, Delhi has created an image of go-getters for themselves. The numerous flyovers, bridges, hospitals, schools built by the officers posted in Delhi PWD have made life easier for the citizens of Delhi.
