Soon after the meeting, Huda engineers and other officials swung into action and visited several private developers’ townships on Tuesday itself.
Kumar also asked the STP to hold a meeting with private builders in this regard. Private developers’ townships fall under the jurisdiction of the town and country planning department. The extra development charges (EDC) collected by the department from private builders is transferred to Huda for improving infrastructure.
The apex court on Monday pulled up Huda for not providing promised facilities in privately-developed localities even though it has collected thousands of crores in the name of internal and external development charges.
The court rapped Huda while disposing of a petition filed by the Gurgaon Citizens’ Council seeking exemption from house tax slapped by the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG), on the ground that their areas do not come under the civic body.
