GURUGRAM: Hundreds of families residing in Sector 110A’s Mahindra Aura residential society have raised concerns about the poor quality of construction after seepage and cracks were noticed in the structure of several towers.

Apart from these issues, residents said there is leakage in the basement, due to which water gets accumulated in the parking lot, further posing a serious threat to the safety of residents.

With around 800 units spread across 18 acres, the project was launched by Mahindra Group in 2010. Possession was offered from 2014, and around 90% of units are occupied at present.

The developer did not respond to queries sent by TOI.

Residents said they have raised the issue with various agencies, including the department of town and country planning (DTCP), but have failed to get any relief. Bimla Tiwari, a resident, said the quality of construction is very poor. “Plaster falls down so frequently that standing or sitting on the balcony is extremely unsafe due to use of poor-quality construction materials,” she said.

The resident added that the developer and RWA charge very high amounts for maintenance, but are not doing the required work. “We want justice through the government’s intervention,” she said.

“Water has been leaking in the basement from the day of handover. We have complained to the builder and RWA on several occasions, but received no response and no appropriate action has been taken by the people concerned,” said another resident, Amar Meena.

He also said residents feel very unsafe because of water leaking in the basement all these years.

“Residents of almost all the towers in the society are facing seepage problems. This is a real threat to the residents, as buildings have become structurally weak. Even after around five years of handover, there is hardly any redress of the complaints raised by us,” added Suresh Rana, another resident.
