The residents of Gurugram based colony claimed that the developer has failed to check the issues being faced by them.
Residents of Ardee City, a residential township in Sector 52 Gurugram, recently started a signature campaign, demanding transfer of all the mandatory services from the developer to the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG).
The residents claimed that the developer has failed to solve the issues being faced by them. They alleged that their township has too many loopholes in the infrastructure, especially in the mandatory services like the roads, streetlights, and the sewage systems are poorly maintained. Apart from that, the township also falls behind in the sections of security and cleanliness, claimed the residents.
The residents are facing such issues for a long time now. Around four years ago, they stopped paying maintenance charges to the developer as he was not providing them the services he was charging for. Nearly one year ago, the developer withdrew all his services, since then the RWA of the township is maintaining the cleanliness and hygiene in the area through voluntary contributions.
Praveen Yadav, President Ardee City said, "Currently we are maintaining the non-mandatory services of the township. But we cannot afford to provide mandatory services such as roads, lights, sewer and electricity. Our aim is to collect all the signatures from the residents and represent it to the Deputy Commissioner, and Director General of Town and Country Planning and finally seeking CM Haryana intervention to expedite the matter."
The residents alleged that despite making several requests the authority and the developer is passing the buck on each other. But so far nothing is done to ease their problems.
Chaitali Mandhotra, RWA Member said, "For some years now we have been facing this issue. We had requested the authorities to transfer the township to MCG. Now with this signature campaign, we are aiming to grab the authorities' attention. We have collected more than 700 signatures so far and we are positive that we will be able to collect all the signatures by the end of this month."
Previously, the residents had written several letters to the Deputy Commissioner and concerned officials of the Department of Town and Country Planning (DTCP). They have also handed over a memorandum on the issue to the MCG.
