Chintels Paradiso flat owners seek four more months to vacate towers E & F
GURUGRAM: A day after deputy commissioner Nishant Yadav issued an order asking residents in towers E and F of Chintels Paradiso to vacate the premises within 15 days, the flat owners reached his office on Tuesday, seeking more time.
While Yadav was not available in the office, flat owners met additional deputy commissioner Hitesh Meena. They sought at least four months for vacating flats and an alternative houses whose rent would be borne by the developer.
On Monday, Yadav had appointed district town planner (enforcement) Manish Yadav as the nodal officer to ensure that flats of towers E and F are vacated within 15 days and possession is handed over to the developer.
Flat owners said the order passed under the Disaster Management Act is not in their favour. “If we are forced to vacate the premises without compensation, we will face a tough time like tower D residents. Even after one year, the compensation has not been finalised,” they alleged . They further said that they will not hand over possession to the developer, instead will retain the keys till the time the compensation is settled.
Administration officials assured the owners that their demands will be discussed in the next meeting scheduled on May 18, which will also see the officials of town and country planning department, police and the developer in attendance.
“It has become essential that towers E and F be immediately evacuated in order to avoid any damage to life and property. Any person contravening this order shall be liable to be proceeded against as per Section 188 of the IPC, sections 51 to 60 of the Disaster Management Act and other legal provisions as applicable,” the DC order said.
