Residents told to vacate their flats by March 1
Gurugram, Feb. 17 (Delhi Crown): The “Green View Society” in Gurugram’s Sector 37-D has been declared “unsafe” to live, and city’s Deputy Commissioner (DC) Nishant Yadav has ordered for its demolition.
All residents of the society have been asked to vacate it by March 1.
Ironically, the housing society was not built by any private builder, but by Centre government-owned NBCC (National Buildings Construction Corporation).
NBCC is the blue-chip company owned by the Government of India. It is under the ownership of Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Government of India.
Confirming “structural and construction lapses”, DC Nishant Yadav said the decision to demolish was taken after holding a meeting with 140 flats’ owners of the housing society.
Yadav further stated that the Centre Government will provide alternative accommodation to the affected residents. It will also provide rent to those willing to move to flats of their choice with the same parameters.
The Gurugram DC also said that the decision was taken after reaching a consensus between the flat owners and the NBCC officials. “The decision to demolish the building has been taken in the flat owners’ interest,” added Yadav.
The development comes a week after a portion of Chintels Paradiso housing society, in Gurugram’s Sector 109, collapsed vertically from sixth floor down below till the first floor, killing two women residents and injuring a few others.
Rendered homeless, residents of Chintels Paradiso have been demanding strict action against the builders and their immediate arrests. An FIR u/s 304 IPC, besides others sections, has been filed at the Bajghera Police Station, though the residents claim that the Gurugram Police are “shielding” the builders.
