Zero bids for fixing issues, transfer of colonies in a limbo

It is nearly three years since CM Khattar had directed the municipal corporation to take over the colonies
From page 02 GURUGRAM: The Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) is yet to take over privately developed colonies on Thursday, as there were zero bids for fixing the deficiencies in the colonies, said officials.

Residents of Sushant Lok Phase 1, Palam Vihar and South City 1-2 (including Nirvana Country) will have to wait longer for the takeover.

Thursday’s delay marked the fourth time in the recent past that the colonies have not been taken over despite a definite date being announced.

On August 9, the Town and Country Planning department had directed developers to transfer colonies by August 31, on an ‘as is where is basis’.

On September 9, the Town and Country Planning department had issued an order to transfer Sushant Lok Phase 1 and Palam Vihar to the MCG with immediate effect.

On October 30, Yadav had issued directions to MCG officials to take over these four colonies by the end of November, but since only one firm had come forward to bid on the work tender, on the date of selecting a concessionaire two weeks ago, the takeover was postponed until at least two firms showed interest, which is the minimum number mandated by the state government.

MCG commissioner Yashpal Yadav had said that provided two firms, the least required for any tender, submitted bids, and a concessionaire was selected, the MCG would take over the four colonies. “We did not receive a bid from any of the firms on Thursday. We will take a call whether the existing tender needs an amendment, and float it once again soon,” said Yadav.

Yadav said that once a concessionaire is selected, the state government would be alerted, as a file in regard to the colony takeover is in the chief minister’s office (CMO) for approval.

The colony transfer has been pending since February 2016, and is nearing three years to the date that chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar had directed the MCG officials to take over these colonies from the developers.

The tender was floated to fix deficiencies in these colonies, which MCG estimates at ₹41.28 crore for Sushant Lok Phase 1, ₹19.32 crore for Palam Vihar, ₹17.95 crore for South City 1 and ₹33.32 crore for South City 2 (including Nirvana Country, which needs ₹9.80 crore).

The deficiencies that the potential concessionaire has to fix are constructing or repairing community centre, parks, roads, sewage lines and green belts, as sanctioned in the building plans of these colonies in the 1970s.
