HUDA cancels liquor-vend contract in Sector 43

Posted: Jun 20, 2018     By City Spidey

In response to complaints from local residents, HUDA today cancelled the permission for a liquor vend in Sector 43, Gurgaon.

The vend was to open in the parking area adjacent to Gold Souk mall in Sector 43. There are six large housing societies located close to the vend site, including Sanskriti, Powergrid, Sarika, Jeevan, Tara, Navyug and Cameroon Court, with around 3,000 families.

Residents met HUDA administrator today and handed over a petition demanding withdrawal of permission. They cited security reasons for the demand.

Bharat Bhushan Gogia, estate officer, HUDA said, “The authority has decided to revoke the permission granted for the opening of a liquor vend, as a large number of residents filed objections, and also met the administrator — their objections were found to be genuine.”

The location also has a number of schools and temples.

“The safety and security of women, children and senior citizens would have been greatly jeopardised had the vend opened there. We also cited the Bombay High Court decision, which has stated that local residents have a right to oppose the setting up of liquor vends. No consent was sought from any of the management committees of the societies,” explained Subodh Kumar Mishra, a resident, who also met the HUDA officials.
