Administration and RWA's do not see eye to eye on removal of illegal kiosks in DLF, Gurgaon
The administration is cracking down on all the unauthorized kiosks in the millennium city as they are trying to curb crime in the various areas. Going along with the same move, Deputy commissioner (DC) Shekhar Vidyarthi on Tuesday asked DLF to remove all such places, except for dhobis, who sit by the side of the road catering to the apartments nearby.

A letter was send by the DC to the RWA to see to it that no illegal encroachment is present at any part of the area. It has also been mentioned in the letter that it was the developers who are responsible to see to it that no illegal encroachment is there. As far as the dhobis are concerned, they can be allowed in a systematic manner, taking the residents permission and allowed to sit in specific places of the colonies.

As was reported by the timesofindia, the RWA's have objected to shutting of kiosks selling groceries, laundries and others providing the basic amenities to the residents of the colonies in DLF area. Pointing out to the actual commercialisation of the area by many people by building guest houses, they have objected strongly against the above mentioned removal of stores built for their convenience.

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."

A meeting is to be held in the same context with the DC and all RWA heads of the area. A team of the ATP (Assistant Town Planner) will also re-look at the area. Hosiar Singh, ATP also gave his quote on the issue and said, ''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.''
