Gurgaon colonies hope for participation after MCG takeover

As the MCG prepares itself to take over the five private colonies of DLF Ph I, II, III, Sushant Lok I and Palam Vihar, the RWAs want to be kept in the loop while inviting tenders for the maintenance work.

They feel their involvement would help them monitor the progress of work better.

For the past five years, the residents had been fighting for the transfer of maintenance to the MCG, since the developer did nothing to improve the essential services, such as road, water supply, sanitation and streetlights.

Despite paying huge maintenance charges, the residents of DLF II and III had to pool money and purchase streetlights. The defunct streetlights had become a threat to the residents’ security.

“Once the MCG takes over, we will ensure the safety and security of the residents. More security guards would be deployed, and maintenance work, too, would be started soon,” said Ramesh Yadav, vice-president of Qutab Enclave RWA.

The blocked sewer lines in many areas of DLF II and III will also be one of the top priorities of the RWA, besides ensuring other services, such as door-to- door garbage collection and parking.

“It is a huge relief for us. We are hopeful that the infrastructure would get better with MCG working jointly with the RWAs, and the city as a whole would be benefit,” said Neelu Sharma, a resident of Sushant Lok I, and president of Residents United, a pressure group coordinating with government officials.

Though the RWAs are not very clear about the services that MCG will provide, but they feel deployment of security guards, horticulture, maintenance of parks will remain within RWA purview.
