Gurugram, October 9

Residents of Tower H of Chantalus Paradiso, Sector 109 have been directed by the Gurugram administration to vacate the building within 15 days. The tower was declared ‘unsafe’ in July, despite 15 families living there. Now the administration has issued a final ultimatum to them.

While issuing a notice to the residents, the administration has warned of strict action under the Disaster Management Act if they do not comply with the orders.

IIT-Delhi experts in their structural audit report concluded that there is extensive corrosion of steel reinforcement due to use of chlorides and poor quality of concrete. Experts opined that due to these reasons, Tower H of Chantals Paradiso cannot be renovated and is unsafe for habitation.

Tower H is the fifth and latest building to be declared unsafe in the community. In February 2022, a section of the sixth floor in Tower D of Chantals Paradiso partially collapsed, killing two female residents. Towers D, E, F and G of the complex had already been declared unsafe by the same expert team.

“The residents were asked to vacate the premises, but even after two months, we don’t see any compliance. So we issued a warning and gave them 15 days. The builder was also given an ultimatum. He is asked to work as soon as possible and hand over the agreed compensation otherwise the administration will auction all his assets and compensate the residents,” said ADC Hitesh Meena.

A special meeting of all the residents of the society has been called this weekend to review the compensation formalities and grievances related to maintenance charges.
