Gurugram civic body to file a new plan for infrastructure
We gave our presentation on the current status of works in these colonies. Some suggestions were given for each territory, but the estimates will have to be changed and sent to the Haryana government by September 30.
In Vipul World, bituminous roads won’t survive due to continuous waterlogging, so the estimate prepared for the colony will have to be increased, Tushar Yadav, executive engineer, Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG), said.

Municipal Corporation of Gurugram took over seven private colonies, Ardee City, Malibu Towne, Vipul Gardens, Uppal South end, Sushant Lok Phase 2, Rosewood City and Sushant Lok Phase 3 on June 15, and Greenwood City on August 29.
Mayfield Garden takeover is still pending for view. The services that the MCG took over include water supply, stormwater drains, roads, streetlights and sewerage systems.
New plan for infrastructure in colonies by September 30
The chief minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar, has announced the MCG takeover of 11 colonies like Ardee City, Vipul Garden, Rosewood City, Malibu Towne, Mayfield Garden, Uppal South end, Sushant Lok Phase 2 and Sushant Lok Phase 3, Greenwood City and DLF phase 4 and DLF Phase 5, on November 2019 under the second phase of transfers.
The residents of these colonies have long been demanding that the MCG enhance the takeover process, citing worsening the civic infrastructure of the settlements.
In December 2020, MCG councilors across the city took up the issue of colony transfer with the chief minister of Haryana and requested him to fast the process. The residents and the councilors had claimed that the process of transferring the colonies was going on at a very moderate pace.
