“The deadline will be extended since there is shortage of manpower. No work was done in the last two months due to lockdown. As the lockdown restrictions eases, we will call a meeting of the MCG officials and DLF to review the status of work done for the handover and will then set a fresh deadline,” said Hariom Attri, joint commissioner-3, MCG.
In the meeting held in February, DLF had submitted a tentative timeline to complete the pending work between July and December.
However, the MCG officials found the timeline too long and had set a deadline of June 30.
“Around 70% to 80% of the work, related to roads have been completed in the DLF-1 and 2. This was the status before the lockdown was implemented. However, a majority of work is still pending in the DLF-3. We have not yet been able to convene a meeting and discuss the takeover,” said a senior MCG official.
DLF officials did not comment on the matter.
The takeover of DLF-1, 2 and 3 was announced by chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar in 2016.
