No drain to let out sewage, no hurry to build it either

india Updated: Aug 09, 2009 23:52 IST

Occupants of Greenwood Plaza commercial and office complex, abutting HSBC Tower in Sector 45, continue to inhale the stench of stagnant sewage that has been accumulating there for the last two years.

Neither Haryana Urban Development Authority nor any other agency has come to the rescue despite repeated efforts by the residents of the locality.

Shammi Chopra, a resident, said even the newly-formed MCG was of no help.

“The well-educated and widely travelled people visiting eating joints and the offices of well-known companies continue to suffer the stink. Moreover, the filthy scene creates a poor impression of the place amongst first-time visitors,” said

As in many other places in the city, sewerage lines in Sector 45 are not connected to the master sewerage line, which is still incomplete.

As for Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon, the civic body is going slow on the takeover of sewage and storm water drainage systems. It has not taken over either system as these are maintained by the Public Health Department in Old Gurgaon, and by HUDA in its own sectors as well as in private colonies, such as DLF City.

Not a rupee has been spent on these during the last year.
