The members of the resident welfare associations of the southern sectors,in a meeting with local MP Pawan Kumar Bansal,highlighted various demands pertaining to the group housing societies.
A charter of demands for the housing societies situated in Sector 48,49,50 and 51 was presented to Bansal.
The associations demanded that maintenance of internal roads,street/ park lights and the payment of bills be made by the Administration as the co-operative societies have no source of income of their own and are dependent on the funds being provided by the members.
Also,they demanded at least 50 per cent of the transfer fees to be paid by the purchasers of the flats.
Another issue raised was that the existing police station,with a staff of only 10,cannot cater to the four sectors. This is why,they requested that the police patrolling in this area be increased,till a separate police station is allotted,in the space already demarcated in the sector plan.
The area neither has an e-Sampark centre nor a post office. It virtually has no marketplace either and the health services are poor.
Demands were also made for a community centre,a swimming pool and fire fighting system,and allotment of space for religious places.
The area also faces the problem of frequent call dropping.
Because of the existence of the Central Jail,and installation of jammers in its premises,frequent call dropping has become a major problem here.
The residents have demanded reduction in the intensity of these jammers,so that the problem can be taken care of.
