17 Families Yet To Vacate 2 Paradiso Towers, Admin To Issue Fresh Order, ET RealEstate

September 28, 2023

GURUGRAM: The district administration, after repeated reminders to flat owners, may issue orders under the Disaster Management Act, 2005 for immediately vacating towers G and H of Chintels Paradiso. Both towers of the residential society in sector 109 were declared unsafe for habitation by the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (IIT-Delhi) three months ago.

The enforcement team of the department of town and country planning (DTCP) has already written letters to the RWA and the developer and appealed to residents to vacate the towers. There are a total of 104 flats in the towers, where 17 families are living at present.

Three other towers — D, E and F — have already been vacated after those were found unfit for living.

In its report after a detailed structural audit, IIT-Delhi stated that high amounts of chloride were found in the concrete of towers G and H, due to which steel bars have been corroded, making the towers unsafe.

“These towers have been declared unsafe and it is extremely important to get them vacated at the earliest. But some residents are protesting against the order. Now, a fresh order will be issued under the Disaster Management Act,” district town planner (enforcement) Manish Yadav said.

As far as compensation to the affected flat owners is concerned, around 150 allottees of the total of 288 flats in five towers of the society — D, E, F, G and H — have given their consent for the buyback scheme offered by the developer.

One of the flat owners yet to vacate told TOI that leaving without a compensation plan is very difficult and full of uncertainty. “We want clarity from the district administration and DTCP before vacating flats,” he said.

Tower A is liveable as of now but there is deterioration, and IIT-D’s report has recommended annual structural audits to ensure safety of residents.

A spokesperson for the developer said company representatives have been requesting flat owners to vacate the flats at the earliest for their safety. “We have offered them compensation and many families have accepted the token amount,” he said.

On February 10 last year, two residents were killed after the living rooms of five flats of tower D collapsed vertically. After this, the district administration had announced a structural audit of all the towers of the project.
