KOLKATA: The urban development department has sent notices to residents of 16 flats at Falguni Abasan in Salt Lake, asking them to vacate their homes in one month after the state declared the said flats in the B Type wing “dilapidated”.
The evacuation notice to the allottees of the government rental flats was issued on February 23.
There are 42 building blocks within Falguni Abasan, each block housing eight flats. The total number of flats adds up to 336. Eight flats in each of building Nos. B-5 and B-6 have been declared condemned by the authorities.
Four homes in B-5 and one in B-6 are vacant, while allottees of the rest of the flats currently live there.
The allottees of the identified flats said they were taken aback by the sudden notice to leave their home within a matter of one month.
“My daughter will appear for Madhyamik next year. We do not know what to do unless the authorities arrange for an alternative place for us to shift,” said one of the allottees. The residents claimed they were clueless about even an approximate timeframe for possible return to the flats as “there had been no clear communication in this regard”.
Residents of other blocks in the government complex said several other buildings were also in a dilapidated state and that they feared that they, too, would soon be asked to vacate their flats at a short notice.
Salt Lake is dotted with several housing complexes, like Falguni Abasan, Srabani Abasan, Bichitra Abasan, Banashree Abasan and Baisakhi Abasan, along with some Group-D staff quarters, which house employees of the state urban development department. Going by rules, allottees are supposed to vacate the flats once they retire. The condition of many of the Abasan buildings are in a shambles.
