The Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) transferred four more areas — sectors 27, 28, 33 and 47 — to the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) for civic maintenance.
Huda had earlier transferred 25 sectors to MCG and with four more sectors, the total count is at 29.
Yashpal Yadav, administrator, Huda, said, “Following directions from the Haryana government, I issued directions to the engineering wing concerned to prepare an estimate (for civic maintenance) of all four sectors and handover the letter to the MCG. Three of the sectors — 27, 28 and 47— are residential while Sector 33 is industrial.”
Senior town planner (STP) of MCG, Sudhir Chauhan, also said that the transfer was done. “Yes, we have received the letter from Huda in this regard,” said Chauhan.
The decision to transfer Huda sectors to MCG was taken by the Haryana government in early 2016.
So far, the MCG has taken over sectors 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 7 Extension, 9, 9A, 10, 10A, 12A, 14, 15 Parts I and II, 17-A, B and C, 18, 21, 22 A and B, 23 and 23 A and 37 I and II, among others.
“The remaining sectors, barring sectors 29 and 57, will be transferred in the next couple of months,” the Huda administrator said.
The transfer process began in early 2016 with the transfer of sectors 21, 22 and 23 to the MCG. However, residents are not satisfied with the transfer.
Major (retired) SN Yadav, a resident of Sector 21, said, “The civic condition of the sector in terms of water supply, roads and sewer all gone from bad to worse after the transfer. The roads are riddled with potholes and the streets are unsafe due to poor streetlighting, unfortunately. We ran from pillar to post at Huda and MCG offices to get the potholes fixed in the last seven months but officials turned a blind eye. Now, we have stopped requesting them and are learning to live in these conditions.”
