Their height is higher than the prescribed standards, which is a danger to ships landing at IGI airport.
RWA accusation – did not speak to us
According to the RWA of these four apartments, the DDA has also responded to the DGCA to reduce the height of these apartments and has not spoken to the people of the apartment or the RWA. According to the RWA, people have put their lifetime earnings here. The flats have been taken after seeing the facilities. Structures that have been asked to be removed include water tanks, fire tanks and lift machine rooms. It includes essential features. If these are broken then how can people be safe here.
‘DDA made a mistake, so why should we tolerate it’
The notice states that the height of the water tank and the fire tank is a few meters higher than the prescribed standards. If these tanks are installed elsewhere, there are many problems and the supply may not be intact. The elevator machine room is also upstairs. The elevator can’t run without it. The towers to which notices have been sent are 8 to 9 storeys high. According to RWA President, Ganga Apartments, NS More, these flats were built to accommodate players before the Commonwealth Games. After the game, it was sold by DDA. Anything that goes wrong is done by DDA before it is sold. So why should people tolerate the wrongs of others? Taking such a big decision alone, the DDA has given its own answer to the DGCA. Didn’t even talk to people. RWAs are requesting a visit to the DDA and DGCA in this regard.
