Representatives of various Gurgaon residents’ welfare associations have assured the state government of their help in preparing complete liability of up-gradation, balance community sites and ensuring five years’ maintenance expenses for five private licenced colonies.
Association representatives are ready to work with the stake holders in these colonies and the Municipal Corporation Gurugram (MCG) authorities in completing the formalities for takeover of the colonies by the civic body.
Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar, on Wednesday, announced that MCG would take over five private licenced colonies — DLF 1, 2, 3, Sushant Lok-1, and Palam Vihar — from May 15 onwards and complete the process by June end.
Association representatives led by Gurgaon Citizen Council met Khattar at Haryana Bhawan in New Delhi on Thursday evening and conveyed their gratitude for ordering transfer of builders’ licenced colonies to the MCG.
Khattar promised to visit the colonies and told the delegation members that the areas would have better maintenance under the civic body. The delegation, led by GCC president RS Rathee, also met RK Khullar, principal secretary to Khattar, and discussed all the modalities of the transfer.
Government functionaries informed the delegation that entire amount would be recovered from the builders through various bank guarantees pledged with the director, town and country planning department.
“We requested better maintenance of non-mandatory services like individual security, security of the vacant plot, green belts and door-to-door collection of garbage,” Rathee said.
Khullar also assured the delegation that other colonies — DLF 4 and 5, Ardee city, Suncity, Malibu Town, South City 1 and 2, Sushant Lok 2 and 3, Nirvana country, Greenwood city, and Mayfield Garden — would also be transferred under this policy soon.
“Licenced builders raj is coming to an end after more than 35 years. Now, at least, there will be an elected representative, elected body and the government to take care of the day-to-day grievances of the residents, which is lacking now because of the dictatorial ways of ruling by the licenced builders and collecting undue maintenance charges,” Abhey Poonia, advisor, Suncity RWA, said.
Other RWA representatives in the delegation included TN Kaul from Ardee city, SS Rai from Sushant Lok-1, TK Satheesan from DLF Qutab Enclave.
