Gurugram: Shoddy construction draws ire from NBCC Green View residents

The residents of NBCC Green View, a residential society in sector 37 D Gurugram, are living in fear because of the substandard construction of the society.

They complained that the developer, NBCC, has compromised with the quality of construction material. Recently, the roof of Tower-A crumbled due to the substandard work. In a similar manner, a column of Tower-D has developed cracks, giving rise to serious safety concerns.

Yadvendra Yadav, a resident of the society said, "Four joint ventilation slabs of the ceiling of the basement parking area have been dug up by the builder due to some fault. Repair works in almost every part of the society has been going on since the time of the possession. Recently, they carried out the ceiling replacement. However, cracks are visible in several beams of the structure."

According to the residents, the project was launched by NBCC in 2012 with a promise of high-quality structure. "They were supposed to give us possession by May 2015, however, the possession was offered in August 2017 in an incomplete stage." lamented Yadav.

The residents claimed that they have made several complaints with the developer. They have also approached CM Window Haryana , a grievance cell,  on the same issue. Now they have approached the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC) highlighting their plight. Chief Vigilance Officer of NBCC team has visited the society recently but their reports are still pending.

The residents alleged the NBCC (National Buildings Construction Corporation) officials engaged in the project might have compromised with the quality of work to favour contractor. They demanded an independent safety and technical audit to ensure the safety of the residents.

Neeraj Kumar Gupta, General Secretary, NBCC Green View, AOA said, "We feel cheated as the quality of construction carried out by the NBCC in the Green View is extremely poor. There are a grave irregularities in the development of the project, which needs an independent inquiry because it is the matter of hundreds of people living in the society."
