Gaur Global Village residents fear a Shahberi repeat after the rains yesterday

Residents of Gaur Global Village in Crossings Republik fear a Shahberi-like incident, as the adjacent construction site has turned into a basin for runaway rainwater gushing down from the adjoining Dundahera village. The muddy rainwater that has collected at the construction site could greatly damage the basement and foundation of Gaur Global — and the village too.

The basement and the front gate area of Gaur Global were submerged in a feet deep water yesterday in the aftermath of heavy early-morning showers.

There’s also a single-storey building next to the construction site that faces risk of collapse. Its residents have been asked to evacuate by the administration. 

Sanjay Jha, secretary of Gaur Global AOA, brought the matter to the notice of Ritu Maheshwari, Ghaziabad DM.

Jha blamed Crossings Infrastructure Pvt Ltd (CIPL), builder of Crossings Republik, for the poor drainage of the area. 

The site was dug up almost two years back and construction work was stopped owing to outstanding payments by Crossings administration.

City Spidey reached out to the GDA and officer on special duty, VK Singh, confirmed that the issue was brought to the administration’s notice and an inspection team was sent to the site.

The team, headed by Ajeet Kumar, visited the site yesterday and asked the builder, Mahagun Montage, to pump out the accumulated water.

Kumar added, “Once the washing out of the water is done, we will provide Ready Mixed Concrete (RMC) to strengthen the retaining wall.”

When City Spidey tried to get in touch with Dheeraj Jain, partner at Mahagun Montage, he rudely hung up.
