Pieces of plaster fall from balconies, lives at risk: Residents of Aura | Gurgaon News

Gurgaon: Hundreds of families living at Mahindra Aura in Sector 110A have been concerned about the poor construction quality of the residential company buildings. Locals say it has become very risky to move around the high-rise towers as pieces of plaster keep falling off poorly constructed balconies.
In the absence of an RWA, dissolved last year, and without response from the DTCP and the developer after repeated complaints, the inhabitants are losing hope. They also allege that seepage in the well area damaged the apartments and that flooding in the basement threatens the overall structure.
Sudipta Sarkar, a resident, said: “The developer delivered poor quality apartments in this project. In five to six years, all the high-rise towers have developed cracks and plaster continues to fall from the ceilings of the balconies daily. Even light rains cause flooding in the basement and the leaks have led to humidity inside the apartments.
According to locals, after the RWA was disbanded last year, the District Registrar of Societies appointed an ad hoc committee on January 10 this year to organize the society’s elections and manage day-to-day business.
Ajit Gupta, a resident who filed a complaint with the CM office, said: “We wrote to Mahindra LifeSpaces (the developer) to intervene but he refused and the former RWA not wishing to raise the matter with the builder has made our lives miserable. .” “The former RWA shared some quotes of the repair cost but it was too high, around Rs 4 crore. Moreover, the builder is yet to hand over the Interest Bearing Maintenance Guarantee Fund (IBMS) of around Rs 8 crore,” he added.
District planner RS ​​Batth said he would visit the site within 15 days. “If the shortcomings are within the jurisdiction of the DTCP, I will ask the developer to fix the problem. If not, I will inform the competent authority of the facts,” he said.
A spokesperson for the developer said, “We are reviewing the matter and will take corrective action as needed.
