Water supply was discontinued a few days back and it was restored only when some of the residents came forward and pooled in some money. The society’s water and electricity bill dues amount to lakhs. “Those paying maintenance charges regularly have to face problems because of non-payers,” said Ashok Gulia, former president of J-Block RWA.
Commander Satyavir Singh (retd), resident of Mapsko Casa Bella in Sector 82, said delay in payments of maintenance is directly affecting services in their society too. “People like us who are paying it timely suffer if few residents don’t pay on time,” he said. AK Singh, president and CEO of maintenance company Enviro — which is in charge of maintenance of several residential societies in the city — said non-payment of maintenance charges is a big hindrance which impacts quality living.
“Long delays in the payment of maintenance fee is a major obstacle which impacts the overall operations and maintenance of any realty project,” said Rahul Singla, director of Mapsko Group.
