A Gurgaon-based MBA student, who commutes to his college in Delhi via the Gurgaon Expressway, has sent a legal notice demanding hassle-free travel.
He faced traffic snarls every day en route to college and back. He has given a month's time to the management to make commuting smooth.
He said the company has no right to charge heavy toll rates unless it ensured smooth traffic flow within a month. A resident of Sector 56, the student has threatened to initiate legal proceedings, both civil and criminal in nature.
Arjun Singh Deswal, a management student of Lal Bahadur Shashtri College, stated in the legal notice that he has been using the Expressway since it was opened in January 2008.
"Some safety issues were raised during the time of opening, such as expanding subways, underpasses, cattle crossings, etc. But none of these promises have been fulfiled,” said Deswal. He claimed in his notice that there was no check on speeding. He said a speed monitoring system is needed.
“Also, there is no ban on slow-moving two-wheelers and three-wheelers. Even traffic cops at the entry and exit of the Expressway have failed to check this menace. In fact, the entire stretch lacks any enforcement activity," said Deswal.
Ravinder Rao, the lawyer who issued the notices on behalf of Deswal, said it was sent to DSC Ltd on March 31 and will wait for a response till April 30.
