Gurgaon's Mayfield Gardens in poor condition: Residents blame builders
The Haryana Lokyukta has given directives to the builders of Mayfield gardens to repair the poor infrastructure of the place. Following the rainy season, the state of the Gurgaon's Mayfield Gardens has become uglier. Stench from overflow drains, poor water supply, inappropriate electricity and potholes on the roads are some persistent problems of the society. Resident Welfare Association (RWAs) held developers responsible for the unbearable condition of the society.

Dharamvir Yadav, President of RWA Mayfield Gardens said, ''There is no one to take the responsibility of repairing the society. Overflowing drain water, chocked sewer lines, and lack of power supply can cause the fatal diseases in the future. We have brought this issue to the concerned officers' notice many times in the past but to no avail.'' The developers, who are supposed to look after these basic amenities lend deaf ears to the problems of the residents.

Yadav further added that there are five developers, who started this building plan with a specific share. Sheetal International Pvt Ltd had a share of 42 per cent, New India City Developers have 30 per cent, Saptsudha Investment Pvt Ltd have 16 per cent of share. Apart from this, Nortchstar Apartment Pvt Ltd has 8 per cent share and Ajay Impech Pvt Ltd have 4 per cent share in the Mayfield Gardens Property. There were some initial internal disputes between these companies, which has led to the residents of the Mayfield Gardens getting deprived of their basic needs.

He also said that now this case is in High Court, they are waiting for the verdict and some respite on the matter. On 7 July, during the first hearing, the court directed HUDA and Department of Town & Country Planning, Haryana to investigate the matter further and prepare a report for the next hearing, which is scheduled for 21 August.

On talking to one of the developers, Ajay Goel, we got to know that they have their own issues with the residents. They feel that the maintenance cost should be born by the residents. Talking about the issue, Goel said, '' If the residents wants maintenance of infrastructure then they must pay for it.'' The case is yet to be resolved and the residents are still waiting for some solution.
