Residents Of Fresco, GurgaonAlthough, the residents of Fresco in Nirvana Country, Gurgaon, got their possession seven years ago, but they are still deprived of the basic facilities like proper drainage and water supply.

As per the residents of Fresco, the developer has yet not received the occupancy certificates, therefore, HUDA is not supplying water connections and MCG is not bringing the society under its maintenance.

The residents have discussed the matter with the authority asking for canal water supply to avoid using the groundwater, but all efforts were unsuccessful.

Moreover, there is no system made for storm-water drainage, sewage treatment and rainwater harvesting in the society.

All the basic amenities, which the society is lacking, depend upon the Occupancy Certificate which has been withheld by the authorities because of some default in formalities from the developer’s end. Things will not improve till the time the OC is not issued.

However, several notices have been issued to the developer regarding the matter. But all notices will be futile if they are not backed up with strict actions from the authorities.

Senior Town Planner (STP) had summoned a meeting between the residents and the developer in April. In the meeting, the developer said that it had made an application to HUDA to get a water connection of 900KLD. But, the connection is still not there because of occupancy certificate not being issued.

The officials of HUDA have said that they are considering the issue closely. According to them, the reason for their pending OC is the non-payment of license renewal fee. They are trying to speed up the process with the help of the residents and developers.
