Many houseowners of Vasundhara Sector 15 are indulging in illegal commercial activity giving out their ground floor portion on rent to garages and mechanics, that otherwise has been prohibited by the UP Avas Vikas. Such an activity affects the residents of nearby colonies in a negative way by causing traffic impediments and air pollution. One such shop that is situated opposite Block F, Sector 17, leased out to a motor mechanic has been causing traffic bottlenecks in the area. The residents of nearby societies such as Konark Enclave and many residents of Sector 15 pointed out that the mechanic’s shop is a nuisance in the area due to which cars and bikes are parked on either side of the road making it often difficult for their cars to pass by. People also complain that young children on bicycles and pedestrians are often at a risk of getting mowed down by fast moving vehicles, especially during afternoon and evenings, as the parked vehicles eat up the space on roadsides due to which it is often difficult to walk past.
When Avas Vikas officials were asked about the said violation, Executive Engineer, Avas Vikas Parishad, Lalit Mohan Pandey said such activities cannot be allowed and promised to take action against the violator starting with a notice.
