GURGAON: Residents of Suncity, a township in Sector 54, expressed concern over pending work by the builder under the licence agreement before transferring the sector to MCG. They said the builder should first complete the pending work worth Rs 300 crore before transferring the sector.
On Monday, the residents met deputy commissioner T L Satyaprakash, who holds additional charge as MCG commissioner, and complained that 19 services, which are mentioned in the licence, are yet to be delivered by the builder. The services, which are yet to be completed, include electrical infrastructure, water supply, sewerage system, pavements, hospital, community centre, post office and boundary wall around the township.
Highlighting the major deficiencies, Abhay Punia, a resident, said, “The township has total approved load of 4,735kVA from DHBVN (Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam), while the present demand is 13,000kVA. The developer promised to build a 66kV substation, but the construction is yet to begin.”
The residents also accused the developer of converting shopping area into an office complex and not providing other essential infrastructure including a boundary wall for the township. “While we were given possession about 15 years ago, the developer has not delivered some basic facilities. According to our estimate, it will cost about Rs 300 crore to complete the pending work. It is impossible for the corporation to spend such a high amount on a township,” said V M K Singh, a resident.
They appealed to Satyaprakash to conduct an inspection in the presence of all stakeholders before MCG takes over the township. “We have requested the authorities not to take over the township before completion of all pending work as per the license condition,” said Pramod Kumar Sharma, a resident who is contesting forthcoming RWA (Residents Welfare Association) elections in the township.
Sources in MCG said that in the event of discrepancies, an inspection will be carried out by the officials and the developer has to deposit bank guarantee with the corporation of the amount required to complete the pending work. Also, the developer has to give a timeline to complete the work.
“We will analyse all the aspects before taking the charge of any township,” Satyaprakash said.
Harender, estate manager of Suncity management, said, “We have got a part-completion certificate from DTCP. The department gives the certificate only after inspection. This is just a tactic of a group of residents to defame the developer, ahead of RWA elections on February 14. It is done to gain the attention of residents to get their votes.”
