Haryana’s department of town and country planning (DTCP) has decided to conduct structural audits of five residential societies in Gurugram. These include Raheja Developers’ projects Vedaanta and Atharva in sectors 108 and 109, respectively, Brisk Lumbini in Sector 109, M3M Woodshire in Sector 107 and Mahindra Aura in Sector 110 A.
The move comes in the wake of a portion of the sixth floor in a tower in Chintels Paradiso in Sector 109 collapsing all the way to the first floor, killing two people.
“It is a good step which Vedaanta society owners have been seeking since 2018 at various levels. It is too sad that the government authorities have woken up after loss of life in Chintels Paradiso,” said Aditya Prasad Tiwari, a resident of Raheja Vedaanta.
Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar had on February 10 directed the DTCP to identify all residential buildings where residents’ welfare associations (RWAs) had reported structural damage and initiate safety audits.
