Gurugram civic body, builders fail to agree on upkeep funds, delay takeover

The government and developers have failed to reach a consensus on the cost of takeover of privately developed colonies like DLF 1, 2, 3, Sushant Lok 1, Palam Vihar and Suncity by MCG, even a year has passed since chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar announced it. Residents cited differences on the cost as the major hurdle in the transfer of these colonies to the civic body. As per government norms, a developer can either get infrastructure work done as per detailed project report (DPR) within six months of the start of the takeover or pay the cost of infrastructure upgrade to MCG before the takeover. Similar objections have been raised by other developers, said sources. “Most of the developers have objected to costs mentioned in DPRs and are not willing to pay for operation and maintenance of the colonies”.
