A month after the Gurgaon police registered a case against city-based Raheja Developers for poor construction quality of Raheja Vedaanta on the complaint of the department of town and country planning, the repair work at the Sector 108 residential society is far from complete. A senior town planner is supposed to monitor the repair work before a team from IIT-Delhi certifies the same.
Haryana Real Estate Regulatory Authority (H-Rera) has now directed the developer to submit an affidavit by September 20 with details of the repairs done in the society to date and how the realtor plans to complete the remaining work. The real estate regulator is of the view that sufficient time has been given to the developer, TOI has learnt.
The society’s RWA highlighted that water seepage was taking place not only from the two basement floors but also from the expansion joints on the ground floor, and the need for urgent remedial measures. On the facade of the building, the developer will have to take immediate action for interim safety like installation of safety nets.
According to the RWA, the developer tried to shift the blame on the association saying they did not maintain the structure properly. “Till now, all the infrastructural assets have not been handed over to the RWA. Even the basic structural drawings of the buildings are yet to be given to the RWA,” said Gautam Sen, president of Vedaanta RWA.
When contacted, the developer refused to comment.
Spread across 10.68 acres of land in Sector 108, the developer got a licence for the residential group housing society in 2007 from DTCP. Construction work at the project site started in 2008 and the developer started giving possession to homebuyers from 2014. The issues regarding structural issues have been raised by the residents since 2018. The DTCP got the FIR lodged against the developer in August.
