Infra repair too slow, hand over colonies now, MCG tells DLF

MCG joint commissioner Hariom Attri said that the repair work by the developer was progressing at a snail’s pace, which is why the MCG sent the notice to DLF, asking them to hand over the three colonies immediately and pay the MCG to fix the remaining deficiencies.
In February 2016, the state government had directed the MCG to take over the three colonies. Before the handover, the DLF had opted to fix the existing deficiencies instead of paying the MCG to do so.(HT image)
