Residents of Nirvana Country, a high-end township, in Gurgaon, have started a campaign against their developer, Unitech Limited.

Even after complaints being filed by the Residents Welfare Association (RWA) against the developer for the past six months, the developer is allegedly insensitive towards providing basic amenities like proper water supply in the township.

A Unitech official, however, claimed that the residents raised several issues, after a circular regarding revised maintenance rates, was sent to them. The rates have been increased to Rs 2.5 from Rs 1 per sq yard.

Nirvana Country residents have alleged that there is inadequate water supply in overhead tanks. “The HUDA water supply line has touched Nirvana gates, but the developers’ connecting line is four and a half feet above the line,” Sanu Kapila, secretary general, Nirvana RWA, said.

Sewage connectivity to the main sewer line is non-existent. The sewage is pumped out of the township and dumped on the road. “The township does not have a complete boundary wall, which is posing threat to security as many thefts have already taken place,” Varun Ahuja, president, Nirvana RWA, said. Besides, the residents have been allegedly forced by the developer to pay R75,000 extra for club membership.

Other issues include lack of a community centre, generator, guards and incomplete bus shelters. A Unitech official said, "As far as water supply is concerned, we have recently obtained the connection from HUDA and the line is very deep, which if released could mix with sewage water. The work is in progress. We'll have a meeting with HUDA to sort out this issue in the next 2-3 days."
