WHAT DOES URJA STAND FOR (United Residents Joint Action)
URJA literally means ‘energy’ in hindi. It is an organization with two distinct but inter-related missions. As implied in the first part of it name (United Residents) signifies its united strength as the apex body of RWAs in Delhi The second part of its name (Joint Action) highlights the fact that it is the largest civil society initiative in Delhi.
URJA gathers, analyzes, disseminates information & aggregates public opinion to demand efficient delivery of civic amenities, health services, security, clean air and water to residents of Delhi through an accountable, efficient and responsive Government. We connect and network with more than 2500 RWA apart from several significant NGOs in all the 272 municipal wards of Delhi. URJA addresses the gap in last mile governance by connecting citizens and RWA receiving services to government departments and elected politicians responsible for delivering those services. URJA is a Registered body under the Societies Act 1860 -- has an independent senate and coordinators who work at assembly, constituency and ward level
