Following pathetic condition of upkeep of privately-developed township Ardee City for the last few years, its RWA has decided to follow the 'bhagidari' model.
It will participate in maintenance of the area with developer Ardee Infrastructure.
RWA members met Ardee Infrastructure officials to discuss the next step. Spread across 600 acres in Sectors 51, 52 and 57, the township has 2,000 housing units.
T N Kaul, president of Ardee City RWA, said both sides have agreed to form a committee with representatives from the RWA and the company.
"All decisions about selection of security and maintenance agencies of Ardee City will be taken jointly. There will be two or three representatives from the RWA," said Kaul.
Apart from Kaul, RWA general secretary Sumish Narang and vice-president Vikram Shah attended the meet, while Ardee Infrastructure director Shivani Verma and senior vice-president Anil Hasija represented the company.
Both sides agreed that residents will be charged a fee based on actual expenditure of upkeep, and the process won't be a profit and loss initiative.
Residents, too, hope that things will improve finally once the committee starts working.
