GURGAON: The department of town and country planning (DTCP) has directed as many as 35 builders in Gurgaon to hand over the maintenance of apartments and condominiums to their residents' welfare associations (RWAs).

Till recently, the builders in Gurgaon were reluctant in handing over the control of maintenance and other functions to the RWAs, but now they are left with no other option but to exit.

In many apartments and condominiums, the RWAs have dragged the builders to consumer forums and courts seeking complete control of maintenance work. The latest directives of the DTCP will further boost the morale of the RWAs in demanding their rights.

The maintenance work of these residential areas must be handed over to the RWAs under the provision of the Haryana Ownership Act 1983.

A senior DTCP official said that after the registration of Deed of Declaration (DoD), the administration of that part of the condominium for which occupational certificate has been granted is to be transferred to the board of managers of the residents' association of all flat or apartment owners.

In the directive, the DTCP has stated that in many condominiums the DoD has been executed and registered but the administration is still being run by the builders or the agency nominated by the builders which is totally against the spirit of the Apartment Ownership Act 1983.

In Gurgaon the DTCP official said that many condominiums have been issued completion/ occupational certificates has been granted. In the fresh directive, the DTCP has stated that the builders should not have any misgivings that administration is to be handed over to RWA only after the grant of completion certificate. In Gurgaon, so far only three RWAs have managed to take over maintenance of the colonies. The recent takeover by Palam Vihar RWA was amicable.

Commenting on the recent circular, a builder having projects in Gurgaon said: "It does not leave much room for builders to retain the maintenance of the condominiums and group housing societies in Gurgaon. The DTCP must play a greater role in the smooth transition of maintenance or administration from builders to RWAs."

He added that to iron out differences between the RWA and the colonizer, the DTCP should come out with standard operating procedure for making the transition constructive. "The RWA must not insist on absolutely new DG sets or cables, redoing of the club, swimming pool and other facilities before taking over the administration of the townships or condominiums," said the builder.

The RWA had, in the recent past, issued circular seeking the residents' views, opinions / consent reg the change in source of electricity from the TD to either: DHBVN direct or RWA take-over backed by DHBVN / private parties.
Unfortunately, RWA received only a few responses. Hence the plan fell on its face.

This is a reminder to all. We all have to remain united and rise to the occasion, not after it is too late

Mr. Ambardar, you make a very good point....if we buy electricity directly from DHBVN, the rate is calculated at our meter...but if Ardee buys from DHBVN, then the rate is calculated at Ardee meter....after that Ardee charges that 600 rupees more in the example you cite for transporting the electricity from their meter to your meter....that is why it is very important that government should take over the colony and residents get all services directly from the is also the lawful thing to do....unfortunately for the past many many years we have been fighting the builder...we should have been friendly with the builder and fighting the government builder will pay from his pocket....he will charge what it costs him and a small profit....but the fact that there should be no builder in the first place is something nobody wants to focus on....

Who in government is responsible ? I had filed an RTI for the information regarding the officials responsible/ accountable for overseeing these kind of colonies, but that was returned with no response

At least, we can start a campaign against those officials through track two channels and get ARDEE do its task

26.Sushant Ambardar/Rajni Ambardar said on August 7, 2013, 4:02 pm

I wd like to make one point clear. We r paying 365 pm. Additionally we r also paying 12% of electricity bill which for a moderate bill of 5000 comes to 600 pm. Virtually we r paying 1000 pm. The notion that we r paying 365 is not correct. Where RWAs are billing for power consumption no Admn charges are levied whereas we are paying this amount. Interestingly we r paying 12 % on electricity duty as well.

25.Sanjay Singh Negi said on August 7, 2013, 3:44 pm

Ardee is a very low cost will be difficult to beat their low cost structures for anyone....the only issue is that the maintenance charges need to increase so that Ardee can maintain the colony....

The long term solution to high maintenance bills is to hand over the colony to MCG....that is the lawful solution which should have happened at least ten years the interim it is best to let Ardee continue to maintain the colony....they will do a good job once we pay for it...

The 35 builders who have been told to hand over maintenance to RWAs are condominium cases or gated colonies....Ardee is an open colony where we are being compelled to maintain pubic roads and parks....the colony is an open city sector which has to be maintained by government....hopefully one day the government will change, all corrupt officials will be sent to jail and then we will enjoy our basic rights to government funded roads....

Till that happens let us continue to buy our maintenance services from the builder with oversight from RWA....let us not divert people by referring to these 35 condominium builders....

24.Vikramjit Singh said on August 7, 2013, 10:02 am

I don't see any resolution or handing over between Ardee and RWA happening yet.

Vivek Pandey said on April 25, 2013, 3:35 pm

Taking over services - Do you think its going to happen in near future ...... I dont see. By the way when do we have RWA election and AGM?

22.Niraj Kumar Tiwary said on April 25, 2013, 3:00 pm

Obviously when maintainence comes into RWA domain than it includes Electricity and Water, the lifeline of any house. It is not just getting the roads cleaned and garbage collected that RWA is going to do for maintainence but it includes the entire responsibility. What we need is a team of dedicated members to take over this responsibility and a bigger office with efficient staff to execute this work efficiently.

21.Sanjay Singh Negi said on April 24, 2013, 6:09 pm

most residents will avoid paying if they can get away with it is imperative that the RWA controls electricity and water supply....phones cannot be disconnected because the service is provided by telecom companies...

it is also important that RWA has some muscle power to confront unruly residents of whom there are is not an easy job to control a colony of 2000 residential units...ideally RWA should function like an extension of civic authority....

20.Niraj Kumar Tiwary said on April 24, 2013, 3:51 pm

If the resident does'nt pay maintenance charges to the builder than what can the builder do? Same thing RWA can also do when the reins are in their hand. Try missing couple of payments to the builder and you will get the answer.
