Failing to maintain roundabouts in the city due to shortage of staff and funds, the horticulture department of Municipal Corporation roped in industrialists in March this year.
However, it has been more than six months but not any of the industries — which were allotted 15 prime roundabouts and rotaries of the city — has started work. Some of them have not even submitted the landscaping maps to the horticulture department.
This, despite repeated reminders of the department to at least begin the work of planting new saplings, trimming the grass and other basic works but no progress has been made till now.

Sources in the horticulture department said that Hero Ecotech Limited, which was given responsibility to maintain Aarti Chowk and Middha Chowk, was even considering backing out from maintenance of Aarti Chowk, and road widening project on Ferozepur road is going to begin.
As per sources, only six of the industries have submitted the landscaping maps planned for different roundabouts whereas on ground zero the work is nil.
When contacted, Surinder Kumar, executive engineer, horticulture, said, “The work has not taken off yet as only six industries have submitted the landscaping map till now. We told them to start basic work of clearing weeds, trimming grass and planting saplings but work has not started. We are only providing them small boards with their names under tag of ‘Maintained by’ and the rest all expenditure is theirs.”
Asked about some of the industries backing off from voluntary proposal, he said, “Some hiccups are there but they have not communicated us till now in written. If maps are not submitted in the coming week, we will allot those roundabouts to someone else.”
