Rigorous persuasion and constant efforts by the residents’ welfare association (RWA) of Mayfield Garden have begun to show results.
The state agencies have finally woken up to the issue and pulled up the developers over the lack of maintenance in the locality.
Gurgaon deputy commissioner PC Meena has called a meeting of five builders and senior town planner RK Singh at his office in Mini Secretariat on Tuesday to seek an explanation.
The residents’ welfare association had lodged a complaint with the Town and Country Planning Department against various real estate companies, who were given joint licence to develop the township, for not maintaining basic civic amenities.
“The case Mayfield Gardens is unique in nature and unparalleled in the history of Haryana urbanisation strategy. There is no provision for issuing a licence to multiple companies for setting up a single plotted colony. In this case, however, 25 licences were issued to 21 companies for development of one colony," Cdr (retd) Dharam Vir Yadav, president of Mayfield Gardens residents’ welfare association said.
He claimed the licence rules were full of anomalies and nobody knew who was accountable to the issuing authority, such as director of the Town and Country Planning Department, for execution of internal development works.
“The worsening state of basic civic and utility infrastructure such as roads, sewers, parks, streetlights and absence of a community centre, religious buildings and electric sub-station in Mayfield is due to obvious reasons because of internal disputes between the partners,” he said. “We have been fighting tooth and nail for the last four years to get things resolved but the case is getting complicated due to legal issues," he said.
