MCG Move to Acquire DLF Colonies
The municipal corporation of Gurugram (MCG) directed real estate developer DLF to re-carpet roads in DLF Phases 1 and 2 at the earliest and had asked the developer to issue a no objection certificate (NOC) for transferring all parks in the colonies and DLF Phase 3 to the civic body.
The notices are the latest in a series of moves by the civic body to acquire the three colonies home to upscale residential plots and important commercial sectors, following many requests from the residents. Earlier, it had pushed the developer into completing many of the maintenance works, much of it still pending.
MCG joint commissioner Hariom Attri said that resurfacing of roads work had been pending for long “due to which residents of the area (are) facing great difficulties” and to start work “at the earliest”. Further, he directed DLF to submit a compliance report. The matters were also brought up in last month’s meeting with DLF officials..”
“We have completed around 70% of road re-carpeting work in DLF Phase 1, 55% in DLF Phase 2, and 40% in DLF Phase 3. For the last one year, work had been progressing at full swing but due to the coronavirus outbreak and the subsequent monsoon season, where bituminous related work cannot be carried out, it was suspended. However, we will be resuming it from next month after the monsoon season is completely over,” said David Amalraj, director, DLF Estate Developers Ltd.
DLF would issue an NOC to the MCG only for upgrading the parks, but will not hand them over. DLF will, however, continue to carry out maintenance of the parks.
