It was decided that a committee or team made by him would visit the society on Wednesday and analyse the situation; after that, they will take the next step, he said.
The Gurugram Deputy commissioner said to TOI that he, along with the additional deputy commissioner, will visit the society soon and examine the condition of the situation and the range of damage in the balconies of the two towers of the society.
After the inspections, the authorities will take corrective actions in the affected towers, he said.
Some sources also said that both towers could be empty for the safety of people in society. After that, a decision on repair work will be taken based on the inspection or audit report.
In any situation, the safety of residents is our top priority. If the towers are vacated or empty, the government allows permission, and the restoration and repair works can start.
There will be more clarity when the structural audit report of building homes results.
However, the role of the project’s contractor, Bhayana Builders, will be investigated by the authorities and allotted team, as they were responsible for the same as per our agreement, a Chintels resident said.
Despite many attempts by TOI, the contractor couldn’t be contacted.
