Gurgaon: Residents of housing societies developed by eight developers may face disruption in power supply and a temporary ban on new connections as the promoters have failed to develop requisite power infrastructure – 33-kilo volts (KV) sub-station and related infrastructure.
The Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) has recently issued notices to all the defaulters, giving them two-week time to take corrective steps for developing the required infra. The notice states that a facility for the partial load of 11 KV was a stopgap arrangement, and the developer was supposed to set up infra for 33 KV within a time-bound manner.
“Shying away from your obligation and responsibilities, you have gone ahead with the sales of plots, flats and shops for possession without making adequate provision for the supply of electricity for the said project. We reiterate that you are bound under the license condition and electrification plan sanctioned to create external infrastructure within the specified time,” the notice reads.
As per the notice, the cost of developing the infrastructure for 33 KV sub-station will be borne by the developer.
According to DHBVN officials, the developers had already collected money for laying 33 KV internal and external infra from the vendees but still had not commenced its construction “Such a conduct amounts to a breach of faith for which DHBVN reserves their right to initiate appropriate regulatory proceedings,” a senior official said, adding that if the developers fail to comply with the notice, the power discom will initiate regulatory proceedings against the builder, seek cancellation of license from DTCP, disconnect electricity supply, stop new power connections and also declare the developer a defaulter.
The developers who have received notices from DHBVN include Oasis Build Homes’ project in Sectors 88A and 89A; Magnum International Company project in Sector 84; Deepanshu Projects in Sector 86; Garden City Colony projects in Sectors 91 and 92; Regal Garden’s Sector 90 project; TS Realtech’s Sectors 85 and 86 projects; Crown Propbuild’s Sector 90 project; and Saphire Landcraft’s Sector 83 project.
Recently, DHBVN had stopped issuing new electricity connections to property owners in colonies developed by 16 builders who were yet to pay the power discom infrastructure charges amounting to over Rs 317 crore.
In October, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar had announced that the state government was framing a policy to provide permanent electricity connections to the residents of private developer colonies of Gurgaon who have been denied permanent connection due to incomplete infrastructure works by their developers.
