GURUGRAM: A group of residents of BPTP Astaire Gardens in Sector 70A met deputy commissioner Nishant Yadav on Friday, claiming “harassment by the developer”. The maintenance agency of the developer, they alleged, disconnected the power connection to around 30 flats without issuing a notice.

Jaswant Singh, one of the complainants, said the agency cited a maintenance shutdown and cut the power supply around 10am on Friday. “The power backup was also disconnected. The developer is harassing residents by disconnecting the electricity claiming pending common area maintenance (CAM) charges. I was issued an electricity bill of Rs 92,000 for May, which I contested, but instead of resolving the matter, they have stopped my power supply.”

Following the complaint, the deputy commissioner constituted a three-member enquiry committee to check the matter. A police complaint was also filed on Friday against the developer. The representative of the developer has refuted the allegations and maintained that the residents have defaulted the power bill payments and prior notice has been issued according to the norms.

When contacted, Rohit Mohan, senior vice-president, BPTP group, said, “Disconnection, if any, is done as per process only due to non-payment of electricity dues only. Multiple notices are also duly given prior to any such disconnection. We would urge residents to clear necessary invoices for resumption of services.”

A senior official at DHBVN said that the agency implemented the shutdown in the society for internal maintenance. “The matter also came to our attention and upon enquiry, it was found that it was an internal matter between the maintenance agency and the residents. There was no supply issue from our side,” the official said.
