Gurugram: Remove encroachments from common areas of Mapsko Casabella in a month, says DTCP

GURUGRAM: The department of town and country planning (DTCP) has asked the developer of Mapsko Casabella, a residential society in Sector 82, to ensure the removal of all encroachments from common areas within a month.

This comes nearly three years after Casabella residents had filed a complaint at CM window against the developer for allegedly selling to gullible buyers the society’s green areas which are part of the common areas.

The developer has also been asked to install sign boards identifying those common areas (like parks) for public use and submit a compliance report within one month to the office of the senior town planner of Gurugram, officials said.

In addition to these, the developer has been further directed to take immediate action regarding the issue of poor quality of plumbing works in the basement and shaft area that have led to leakage and seepage problems. Senior town planner Narender Solanki said that the department has received multiple complaints from allottees that the green areas in the scattered pockets of the society have been encroached upon by some people.

“We have asked the developer to restore the green areas by removing fencing or encroachments, if any. Otherwise, the DTCP’s enforcement wing will take appropriate action,” he said.

On the issue of structural defects, the senior town planner said that the administration has already been working on carrying out the audit of residential societies, including Casabella.

Despite repeated attempts, the representative of the developer could not be contacted.

Among other issues, incomplete installation of fire and safety equipment in the society, non-compliance of rain water harvesting system, under-capacity sewage treatment plant and poor quality of lifts were also raised by the residents.

The STP has also asked the departments concerned to examine the complaints and send their respective reports.

The project was launched in 2009 and the builder started offering possession in 2016. Out of 956 flats, around 900 are currently occupied. “After a long struggle, the DTCP has directed the developer to complete the pending construction and infrastructural defects. We are expecting progress on the ground within one month,” said Dharm Veer Singh, RWA president of Mapsko Casabella.
