The project to provide basic amenities,including water supply and sewerage system,at Deep Complex,Hallomajra,is likely to get delayed with a fresh survey set to be conducted. The reason being cited is the presence of some houses in the alignment of the proposed sewerage system.
The decision was taken at a meeting of the officials of the UT Administration and Municipal Corporation. The issue has been hanging fire for the past several years. After facing many hurdles,the proposals were finally cleared in the meeting of the general House held last month.
Mayor Subhash Chawla said that there was apprehensions that to lay the sewerage lines,some houses might have to be demolished. Following this,it had been decided that a fresh survey of the area would be conducted. The layout plans will be prepared accordingly.
The Municipal Corporation had received approval from the administration to lay pipelines for water supply. However,UT nod was required for the laying of the sewerage system,even though both the proposals had been cleared by the MC House.
In fact,after the proposals were passed in the House,BSP councillor Jannat Jahan,who is the area councillor,had expressed resentment at an alleged attempt of the Congress to give credit for the development to Union Minister for Railways Pawan Bansal. She had stated that credit should be given to BSP and its leaders.
Deep Complex developed over the years,without any planning. With the area being developed illegally,there was no provision to provide amenities here. However,since the population of the area had increased manifold,a demand to provide some facilities was being raised time and again. It is expected that within a week,a fresh survey will be conducted.
