GURUGRAM: Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) chief Vinay Pratap Singh has directed DLF, the developer of DLF-1, 2 and 3, to complete the pending infrastructure work in these licensed colonies by June this year for takeover by the corporation.

The state government had directed the department of town and country planning (DTCP) director to transfer the maintenance of the colonies to the MCG in February 2019, with the mandate that the civic body will take over after due verification of the work done by the developer and the deficiencies.

In a meeting to review the status of pending infrastructure work in the three colonies on Wednesday, Singh had a discussion with DLF and local councillors. He said that for the smooth takeover of these colonies, the pending work as per the detailed project report (DPR) should be completed by June. DLF representatives assured him that it would be done.

The MCG chief also directed officials of the engineering wing to prepare estimates for the additional infrastructural work required in these colonies, which isn’t mentioned in the DPR.

The councillor of ward 34, RS Rathee, said the MCG should start maintenance and upgrade of parks and drains with immediate effect. “Residents are stuck between the developer and the civic body. They are facing problems but no one is attending to their concerns due to delay in completion of infrastructural deficiencies,” he said.

Ward 35 councillor Leelu Yadav said road-related work is up to 60% complete according to DLF, but on visiting the site, it was found to be not more than 20% done. “The condition of roads and water supply is pathetic and it needs to be addressed before summer,” he said.

In December 2019, DLF had informed the MCG that it will complete the deficit infrastructure work as soon as the blanket ban on construction imposed by the Supreme Court is lifted. The developer had also said it was carrying out maintenance work related to water supply, sewerage, horticulture, general upkeep, security and others in consultation with residents and RWA.

Following the progress report submitted by the developer, Singh had directed the additional commissioner and the executive engineer to verify the claims about the work status. But the report was not verified. The developer had submitted another progress report in February last year.
