Poor road condition, garbage dumped in open and misuse of public land have become part and parcel of the daily life of the residents of Sector 40 here. The residents complain that despite assurance from the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) in January, no effort has been made to improve basic amenities in the area.


They said the roads have not been carpeted for the past several years, while the drainage system gets blocked during rains every year. Besides, residential plots are being used for commercial purpose but there is nobody to look into the matter.

"Huda administrator Parveen Kumar visited the sector in January and assured that things would improve. But nothing has been done so far," said Nirdesh Sharma, one the residents.

Some vacant plots have become garbage dumping grounds and they are used by neighbouring slum dwellers to answer nature's call.

The Huda, however, said it is preparing a comprehensive plan to improve facilities in the area. "We are preparing a comprehensive strategy as apart from this sector, the entire city is facing the problem of poor roads," said Kumar.
