Around three months ago, residents of Gaur Global Village had staged several protests and demonstrations against CIPL-a maintenance agency.
Apartments Owner's Association of Gaur Global Village, a housing society based in Crossings Republik (CR) township, on Wednesday alleged that the Crossings Infrastructure Pvt Ltd (CIPL)--a maintenance agency of the region had threatened to disrupt the power supply of the residential complex, after the society denied to pay Township Maintenance Charge (TMC) to CIPL.
"The decision to deny the payment of TMC comes after the AOA observed multiple discrepancies in the maintenance of the society persisting for quite a long time," said Sanjay Jha, secretary of the AOA.
"Due to the inefficiency of CIPL, we have been suffering from poor roads, lack of cleanliness in and around the complex, poor drainage and sewage facility along with inadequate CCTV surveillance," Jha added.
Poor maintenance of the sewer system leads to a flood-like situation whenever it rains heavily, Jha complained. The whole basement was flooded with rainwater and the entire area of our front gate was waterlogged as well, he added.
Three months back, after residents of CR collectively put pressure on the CIPL through demonstrations and protest, they were forced to start the reconstruction of internal roads that remained in a dilapidated state for a long time. However, soon after the water settled, they stalled the construction.
The CIPL is charging maintenance for road, sewer, cleanliness, and horticulture of the township. The cost is 30 paise per square foot and the RWA is paying 3.15 lakh alone to CIPL as township maintenance charge.
The CIPL denied receiving payment of power charge and threatened to discontinue electricity supply of the society,
CitySpidey tried to reach out to the management of CIPL but our repeated calls and messages went unanswered. Recently, the Ghaziabad Development Authority sealed the office of CIPL for the due payment of 27 crores.
