The Gurgaon municipal corporation’s takeover of maintenance of five upscale colonies hangs in the balance as builders have not obtained completion certificates.
Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) commissioner TL Satyaprakash said on Tuesday that the administration may not take over the areas but maintenance work would be done.
On February 8, the state government had ordered transfer of DLF phases 1, 2 and 3, Sushant Lok Phase 1, and Palam Vihar to the MCG within a month for maintenance and upkeep. Several meetings in this regard have been held between administration and residents’ welfare associations (RWAs).
Speaking at ‘RWA Conclave-2016’ in the city, Satyaprakash categorically said the administration would not take over these colonies unless the builders produce completion certificates.
“Whether you pay money or not, we are going to make roads. We may not take over (colonies) but we will provide you all facilities. There is a reason why we cannot take over. Unless you get completion certificates, it is very tough because everything should come with assets and liabilities. So, let assets and liabilities come and we will start working,” Satyaprakash said when an RWA member raised the issue of Sushant Lok.
The MCG on March 17 pulled up developers of Sushant Lok Block C for poor maintenance and asked the developer to spruce up basic facilities in the area within one month. The issue was raised in a meeting of MCG officials and RWA representatives of five colonies.
Satyaprakash said mapping work in Sushant Lok started on Tuesday and data would be ready by September 23.
“Our estimates are ready, but only for the sake of gradient mapping we will hold till September 23. Within seven, eight days, we will float a tender (for road work),” he said.
Satyaprakash said there are clear instructions from chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar to repair all roads by December 31.
Responding to a query about the cause of non-availability of completion certificates, Satyaprakash said the administration would apprise the state government about the issue.
