3,500 families lived without a protective wall in Bharat City, facing safety and health risks.
The Bharat City township, home to over 3,500 families, has failed to complete its boundary wall construction despite orders from the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA). Residents report that the builder has halted work for the past four years, exposing the society from three sides and creating safety hazards and health risks.
Kanishk Saxena, a resident, expressed, “The builder collected the full project cost from all flat owners, but the boundary walls are yet to be built.” The situation is worsened because there is no Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in the township, even though residents have been living there for over seven years.
Earlier this year, the GDA issued a notice to the builder, setting a deadline of 20 October for the completion of the boundary wall, provision of covered car parking, and other basic amenities. However, to date, there has been no visible progress on the ground.
Frustrated by the lack of action, residents have raised concerns with various officials but have seen no resolution. One resident voiced, “Many families live here. Don’t we deserve security? This area is not safe enough to live without boundary walls.”
The situation led to a meeting between the developer and the Buyer Association, with both parties acknowledging issues related to parking, licence renewal, and the project’s completion. Despite these discussions, complaints persist, and the GDA has issued a warning to the developer now.
