Residents of The World Spa, an upscale condominium in Sector 30, celebrated the first anniversary of taking over maintenance work, on Sunday.


Last year, the society had removed agencies deployed by the developer for maintenance, operations and security over shoddy work.

“We have established our identity separate from Unitech. We also launched a new logo that will be displayed at the entrance,” said Gautam Gulati of the World Spa residents’ welfare association (RWA).

In the last one year, Gulati said, the RWA society has improved security with the installation of CCTV cameras, procured fire extinguishers and installed emergency lighting in the lifts and basement.

The RWA also set up sewage treatment plant (STP) connections to all horticulture areas to maximise usage of treated water and reduce use of fresh water.

Like the World Spa, residents of Orchid Petals condominium on Sohna Road also shunted out the developer’s maintenance and operations agency in February.

Such incidents are on a rise in Gurgaon as builders and buyers remain at loggerheads over delay in completion certificates, poor workmanship and shoddy maintenance works. The discontent has led to several anti-developer protests, especially in high-rise condominiums, in the recent past.
