Basic amenities such as road, drain, electricity and drinking water will be made available in the slums after regularisation.

In an important decision for people living in multi-storey buildings, the cabinet approved a draft policy proposed by Public Health Engineering Department to provide water connections to high-rises. This policy is expected to encourage water conservation, rainwater harvesting, wastewater recycling and reuse system.

The cabinet also gave the green signal to the proposal for amending the Land Allotment Policy, 2015, for urban areas of the state. The amendment will facilitate allotment of land at a concessional rate for construction of hostels for students of various communities.

A proposal to repeal 133 obsolete and unnecessary laws existing in the state also got the cabinet nod. After reviewing the existing laws, the cabinet approved the Rajasthan Laws Repeal Bill, 2023. These include 33 original Acts, including Appropriation Acts, and 100 amending Acts, including state amendments made to Central Acts.

The cabinet also amended the notification of November 21, 2019, regarding service rules on the reservation of outstanding sportspersons. Rajasthan Madrasa Education Assistant Subordinate Service Rules, 2013; Rajasthan Specific Area Subordinate, Ministerial and Class IV Service (Recruitment and Other Service Conditions) Rules, 2014; and Rajasthan School Assistant Subordinate Service Rules, 2015, have been included in the notification.
