GURGAON: Deputy commissioner Shekhar Vidyarthi on Tuesday asked DLF to clear all unauthorized kiosks in the green belt in phases I to IV, barring those of dhobis.

The letter sent by the office of the DC to RWAs and concerned officials said it is primarily the responsibility of the developer to ensure there are no unauthorized encroachments in any part of a colony. The developer should take immediate action to remove all encroachments. A policy for the location and monitoring of dhobis can be formulated, and based on convenience of residents, they may be allowed at designated areas in the colony. An overall policy for dhobi kiosks will shortly be formed.

In response, the DLF City RWA met the DC and requested for the continuation of basic amenities such as laundry and grocery that local vendors provide in the area. The RWA has objected to the proposal for removing vendors who provide daily amenities, and are a convenience for residents. The DLF City RWA had earlier written to concerned authorities on the subject.

The RWA has also raised strong objection to the ?actual' commercialization of residential areas of Phase I-IV. They insist on action against guest houses and other commercial developments that have mushroomed in the area.

Sudhir Kapoor, general secretary of DLF City RWA, said, "DLF Phase I-IV is a declared residential zone. Yet, more than 700 commercial establishments such as guest houses, coaching centers etc, are operated in this area. The focus is being deliberately shifted towards local vendors who meet the daily needs of residents." He said there are over 9,000 households in DLF City and so far, there haven't been any untoward incidences involving vendors, who are provided with proper security passes by the RWA to ensure security.

DC has also given directions to hold a meeting for the discussion of issues relating to development works and community sites, especially club. "It is clearly mentioned in the letter that DLF Ltd has to send a responsible representative who can properly interact and take decision who is fully conversant with the problems to discuss various development works, community center and club, as the developer always send junior officials for such meetings," said T.K Satheesan, Assistant General Secretary, Qutab Enclave RWA (QERWA). The meeting is scheduled to take place on September 10 at 3:00 pm at office of Senior Town Planner. The meeting will be held with the president of QERWA, superintending engineer of HUDA, superintending engineer of DHBVNL and the developer.

Moreover, a team, led by ATP (Assistant Town Planner), will be formed to conduct re-survey of roads and parks in different societies. "I along with ATP Enforcement and a team of JE (Junior Engineers) will conduct a re-survey. RWA presidents will also be involved in the process. The RWA presidents are directed to submit their objections in writing after checking the present survey report to the ATP and after taking a fixed time and date," said Hosiar Singh, ATP.
