President of India Ram Nath Kovind, on Sunday, gave assent to the National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Act 2021, granting more powers to the lieutenant governor in Delhi.

The presidential assent to the GNCTD bill was announced through a gazette notification.

According to the legislation, the “government” in Delhi means the “Lieutenant Governor” and the city government will now have to seek the opinion of the L-G before taking any executive action.

Earlier, the Lok Sabha passed the bill on March 22 and Rajya Sabha passed it on March 24.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal termed the passing of the bill as a “sad day for Indian democracy”.
