The poor condition of community centre, lack of local market and water supply are among the major problems the residents of Sector 22 have been facing for the past several years. Despite several complaints, the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) has not taken any action to resolve the issues.

The residents say the work on the market plaza, which was approved by the government in May this year, has not yet started. "The market site has become a haven for rowdy elements who drink in the open and create ruckus," said Bheem Singh, president of Sector 22 Resident Welfare Association (RWA).

The residents claim that the sector's community centre lacks maintenance with cracks developing on the walls.

They blamed estate officer Narender Yadav for the poor state of the community hall as he is responsible for its upkeep.

Besides, the households in the locality do not have water connections. "We have to buy water from private suppliers, who charge about R1,000 for a tank. The situation gets worse in summers," said Singh.

Similarly, neighbouring Sector 21 is plagued by civic issues like encroachment of public land, poor roads and sewer overflow.

"In our sector thoroughfare is the biggest nuisance. People from nearby Delhi colony often enter our area and roam around causing a security concern," said Paras Ram, senior vice-president of Sector 21 RWA.

Besides, poor roads and sewage problem have made life difficult in the locality. "A pool of sewage has been created in the sector. This pool often overflows to the nearby houses. It needs to be taken care of urgently", said Umed Singh, president of Sector 21 RWA.

Most roads in the sector are narrow and in bad condition. "The situation gets worse when the ill-equipped sanitation staff come to the area to collect garbage, creating more chaos on roads, said a resident.
