Also, the Amit Madholia district town planner (enforcement) and DC Vishram Kumar Meena said we would review the report before its release on Thursday.
Initially, 17 housing societies were identified for structural audit, but Uniworld Garden 2 was removed from the list after inspection because the court had already given orders for the project’s structural audit.
The committees audited 201 residential towers in these 16 societies. The total area of the societies was around 2.5 square feet. Spread over an area of around 2.5 crore sq ft. The developers of the societies will carry out the cost of the audit. The audit cost was approx. 4.5 crore.
Audit Agencies Conducted the Survey
According to the orders from the authority, the issued agencies would inspect the detailed visual survey of the buildings and towers of the societies. The audit agencies conducted the survey both internally and externally.
Audit agencies found and observed the level of deterioration, distressed parts, and damage to the towers’ columns, beams, and slabs. The developers of these Societies will pay the total audit cost. It is decided to pay Rs 1.75 per square foot to the audit agencies.
In the last two years, the district administration made a list of 60 housing societies with flaws or structural defects and poor construction quality in the buildings based on complaints from residents or homebuyers.
Most of these housing societies are located along the Southern Peripheral Road and Dwarka Expressway and constructed by well-known developers, including Signature Global, DLF, Raheja, and M3M Group.
Earlier, it was targeted to the authorities to complete the structural audit of the buildings within 45 days. But the target did not achieve, and it got delayed more than a month because some developers still needed to give the payment despite many reminders from the cornered authorities.
The DTCP (department of town and country planning) consequently suggested a ban on the lease deeds and the registration of sales in the projects of the defaulters.
