Union minister and Gurgaon MP Rao Inderjit Singh said on Saturday that he had written to the Haryana government voicing his objections to the alleged dilution of rules in the state’s RERA (Real Estate Regulation Act) draft.

The MP’s spokesperson said, “The Gurgaon MP took up the RERA issue (alleged dilution of rules in the Haryana draft) with the state officials. He said he wants no watering down of regulations to favour the builders. Since the state is likely to issue a notification on RERA soon, he held a wide-ranging discussion over it.”

The minister also said that the city’s metro service will soon be made accessible to residents of Old Gurgaon.

He also met chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar in Chandigarh on the day. Among the issues that came up for discussion during the meeting were the metro extension plan, removal of Kherki Daula Toll plaza and the misgivings over the state’s RERA draft.

Later, a statement issued by the MP stated, “Residents of old Gurgaon are deprived of metro facility. We have broadly discussed the issue with the officials of Haryana town planning and Haryana urban development authority (Huda) in this regard. We hope the detailed project report (DPR) for metro extension from Huda City Centre to Gurgaon Railway station via old city would be prepared soon. The exercise is essential to expedite the process.”

“From Huda City Centre to Subhash Chowk, Sohna Road and Hero Honda Chowk to Sector 9, the metro route line has been decided up to Railway station. The officials have been asked to prepare the DPR for the said route. Besides that, we also discussed the metro extension plan between Dwarka and Iffco Chowk (sic),” said the statement.
