The developer of Ardee City in Sector 52 has been asked to identify a plot within the licensed area for setting up a 33-KVA electricity substation, which will be built by HVPN (Haryana Vidyut Parsaran Nigam). The decision was taken in a meeting of Allottees’ Grievance Redressal Forum (AGRF) chaired by deputy commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh.

The forum also directed the HVPN to conduct the site inspection and submit the feasibility report within the next seven days of earmarking the site by the developer.

It was also decided that an independent auditor will assess the quality of maintenance services being delivered, and what had been provided initially by the developer and whether the fees being charged from residents were reasonable or not.

The decisions were taken after several complaints were made to the department of town and country planning, and the AGRF regarding lack of an electricity substation, delay in executing conveyance deeds and lack of development of a religious site which has been a long-standing demand of residents.

“The developer must identify an appropriate site within the stipulated time and a report should be submitted at the earliest with regard to the substation,” said Singh, the DC who is also the chairman of the forum.

Referring to the complaints regarding the delay in executing conveyance deeds, the DTCP officials made it clear that there was no connection between conveyance deeds and payment of maintenance fees and other demands by the developer. “It has been decided that the auditor will assess the quality of services and maintenance fees. The report will have to be submitted within the next 15 days and it will be binding on both sides. The cost will be borne by the developer,” Singh said.

Referring to the issue of handing over the religious site, RS Bhath, district town planner, said that the developer has been asked to earmark the site but since he claims that the matter is subjudice, the court order will be examined and a decision will be taken in this regard after the developer submits the specific order.

Anil Haseeja, vice president, Ardee city and a representative for the developer, however said that money has already been deposited with the HVPN for setting up the substation, but they are yet to get an approval.
