Badshapur MLA Rakesh Daultabad, deputy commissioner Nishant Yadav, MCG commissioner Mukesh Ahuja and other senior officials of the district administration were also present.
“The aim of this conclave is to create awareness about the rights of RWAs. This meeting was held to address any doubts that RWAs had about the conclave and their feedback and suggestions have been noted down for consideration,” an H-RERA official said.
Several pertinent points were bought up during the meeting by the RWAs. They talked about issues regarding the timeline for completion certificate of projects and handover the same to RWAs or the civic body in case of private plotted colonies. RWAs were asked to submit a list of panellists.
“We have raised multiple issues about project completion and timely handover. It was a fruitful meeting, we hope some changes in the norms will empower the RWAs,” said Chaitali Mandhotra, member of Ardee City RWA.
“H-RERA mainly focuses on issues of high-rises and their disputes with builders. But there are issues such as handover of common amenities to sector residents which need to be addressed,” said Lalit Suraj Bhola, general secretary of Sector 9A RWA.
Praveen Malik, vice-president of United Association of New Gurugram, an RWA umbrella association, said they are happy that the administration is willing to accommodate different views. “We have not only raised our grievances, but also given suggestions to improve the functioning of RWAs,” he said.
