DC Nishant Yadav chaired a joint meeting of developers, audit firm members and RWA representatives regarding the structural audit of residential societies on August 31.

Gurugram Deputy Commissioner Nishant Kumar Yadav on August 31 assured resident welfare associations (RWAs) of 17 shortlisted societies of corrective measures after a structural audit of the buildings. Yadav said that the work orders will be issued to the selected audit firms from September 5 and they will be required to complete the structural audit within 45 days. He asked all the developers to submit the structural and architectural designs of the residential societies to the District Town Planner’s (DTP) office by September 2.

"In the first phase, an audit of 17 societies is being done. These societies had registered their complaints regarding structural deficiencies first. After that, audits of other societies would be done as per the requirement," said Yadav.

Yadav chaired a joint meeting of developers, audit firm members and RWA representatives regarding the structural audit of residential societies on August 31, weeks after the administration selected four firms for the structural audits of 60 Gurugram condominiums.

"These firms will initially do visual inspections by visiting the 17 residential societies. After that, a second stage and third stage audits will be carried out in the societies whose structure or infrastructure will be found to be weak or lacking," said Yadav.

During the visual inspection, two representatives of the RWAs and a representative of the developer will also be present with the audit firm.

The administration advised the RWAs to try to send a civil engineer or architect resident of their society as their representative, to help point out the deficiencies in the structure.

Yadav said that the district administration officials will also visit societies from time to time to take stock of the audit work. The cost of the audit will be borne by the developer.

Yadav also said that while allotting the residential society to the audit firm, the administration will ensure that the firm and the developer should not have worked together in the past. He said that a decision regarding the test for the structural safety of any of these societies would be taken only after visual inspection as these tests are costly and cannot be done for every society.

DTP (Enforcement) Amit Madholia had issued Letters of Intent (LOI) to the four firms on August 3. These firms are Bureau Vertia, NNC Design International, TPC Technical Projects Consultants and Vintech Consultants.
