To avoid another water crisis in the colony, the Residents Welfare Association (RWA) of South City-2, located in sector 49/50, has asked the residents to contribute Rs 5,000 each to clear the dues by July 31.
According to the residents, South City-2, which has 2,500 flats, is facing the threat of disconnection of water supply in the colony.
SN Bhardwaj, President, South City-2 RWA said, "We had a meeting with GMDA Officials regarding the pending water bills payment and circulated a notice to the residents asking to them contribute Rs 5,000 each to the RWA.”
“The amount will be paid to Unitech if they provide us with challan of payment to GMDA. If the Unitech fails to provide us with the proof of payment to GMDA, then the amount will be paid directly to GMDA by the RWA,” he added.
Earlier this month, the GMDA had suspended the water supply due to the non-payment of water bills. Later, it was restored following a joint meeting with the GMDA officials, developer and members of RWAs on the assurance of payment of bills by end of this month. The total outstanding amount of Rs 1.05 crores is due until June 30, 2019.
The residents informed that due to poor services, many residents have stopped making their maintenance payment to Unitech for quite some time.
AK Dang, Secretary SC-2 RWA said, “We are paying our maintenance to the developer, however, it was not deposited to GMDA which resulted in disconnection. Now, we have appealed to the residents who have stopped making payments to contribute as per their outstanding.”
