The residents of Ardee City have taken up the work of cleaning in their area as the developer has failed to maintain the colony properly.
The residents have decided to turn all vacant plots into green areas after completing the cleaning and earth filling works.
They have taken up the task of cleaning the vacant plots, which are now being used as dumping ground for construction materials and garbage. These vacant plots are in the middle of the colony.
"We will bear the cost of developing greenery," said TN Kaul, president of the RWA, Ardee City.
Kaul said that the residents took the task after the developer failed to do so.
The residents hired JCB machines and labourers to remove the waste materials from all the six vacant plots, which were lying vacant for years and even after repeated complaints the developer did not pay heed to their demands.
"We have appealed to the officials of the Ardee City management to clean the vacant plots and streets a number of times but of no use," said Suresh Narang, general secretary of the RWA.
The RWA members called a meeting of the residents and put before them the agenda of cleaning and developing greenery in the vacant plots. The residents agreed to contribute while taking care of greenery once developed properly.
For residents, beside greenery, clean environment is the need of the hour to get fresh air and beautiful surrounding.
“The association has already developed some of the plots which were vacant into a green cover," said RK Chaudhary, a resident.
The officials of the Ardee City management refused to comment despite repeated attempts.
