Work to avoid infra gap in DLF Phase 1, 2 and 3 will commence in the first week of March. After the completion of work in the next three months, the colonies will be entrusted upon the municipal corporation.

As per news report published in the Navbharat Times, the assurance was given by the management of the DLF to the Joint Commissioner of the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG), Rohit Yadav, at a meeting presided by him on February 20. Executive engineers Dharamveer Malik, Anand Singh Rathi, I Ajay Panghal and Shekhar Basu, Anurag Dahiya and Vikas Yadav from DLF were present during the meeting.

The meeting was called after Director of Town and Planning, K M Pandurang ordered takeover of private colonies on February 12. Meanwhile, DLF management said that the power corporation is working on the Smart City project. As a result, several potholes can be seen on roads. Moreover, the weather is not favourable to construct more of them. Citing these two reasons, the DLF management said the construction work will begin in the first week of March and within three months, all the damaged roads will be improved. Besides, the work related to stormwater, drainage water, sewerage and horticulture will be completed by March 31.

Further, the Joint Commissioner of the civic body concerned has directed executive engineer Anand Singh Rathi to work with the consultant company and prepare a plan at the earliest to expel rainwater in DLF Phase-3. Apart from this, the power corporation has been requested to finish the work related to the Smart City project as soon as possible so that roads can be constructed in these areas.

A total cost of Rs 14.12 crore in DLF Phase 1, Rs 9.43 crore in Phase 2 and Rs 11.89 crore in Phase 3 will be spent to fill the infra gap. A thorough study has been made by the consultant company associated with the municipal body to prepare a Detailed Project Report (DPR).
