GURGAON: GMDA issued a notice to developer Unitech Group on Tuesday for allegedly allowing the use of groundwater for construction activities in Nirvana Country. As per the notice, the developer has given groundwater connections to buildings that are currently under construction or without an occupation certificate, which is not permissible under the norms.
According to GMDA officials, they had received a complaint from a Nirvana resident stating that groundwater is being used for construction activities in the township. “We have asked the developer to cut all such connections and submit a report within seven days from the date of the notice,” a senior GMDA official said.
A copy of the notice, accessed by TOI, stated that in the wake of water shortage faced by the residents of Gurgaon, the developer is directed to disconnect all such connections in conformation with the National Building Code, 2016 and MCG Act, 1994. “We’ve also directed the developer to ensure that all such under-construction buildings under the purview of the Nirvana RWA use water from sewage treatment plants for construction purposes,” the official added. There are around 50 under-construction houses in Nirvana Country.
