In the wake of mounting outcry over poor upkeep of colonies by private developers, the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) has sought maintenance reports from resident welfare associations (RWAs). Residents have been seeking the intervention of Huda administrator Praveen Kumar.
The administrator on Monday visited Mayfield Garden, South City, M2K, Malibu Towne, Sushant Lok, DLF and other localities and found damaged roads, water logging and overflowing drains, besides encroachments in and around the colonies.
He interacted with residents of various localities and found serious laxity on part of the developers. In a recent meeting at Gymkhana Club, Sector 29, Kumar had asked residents to give him suggestions on improving civic amenities.
“The Huda will give an undertaking to provide better facilities to these localities. I am sure a majority of the residents are also of the same view,” said the administrator.
“I have taken up the issue with developers. If garbage is not lifted or premises not cleaned, I will take them to task. I will also write to the state chief minister and move the court if needed,” he added.
Meanwhile, residents have welcomed the move. “I support the move and wish that he takes action at the earliest,” said SN Bhardwaj, president of South City-2 RWA.
“The administrator should take up the issue with the chief minister,” said Ashok Gulia, president of Mayfield Garden RWA.
“I am in favour of the Huda taking maintenance under its control. This is the right time to begin,” said Dr Vinod Kohli, president of Malibu Towne RWA.
