On orders of Divisional Commissioner, Meerut, a team of Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam (GNN) today sealed the office of Ansal Housing & Construction Ltd at Ansal Plaza Mall in Vaishali Sector 1. The private developer had total dues of Rs 8.27 crore pending towards developmental works at Avantika colony, after which the sealing was done.
The matter concerns the development of Avantika colony in Ward No 56 of Ghaziabad that was transferred to the GNN for maintenance on March 1, 2016. As the builder had not carried out the developmental works in the colony as promised the RWA of Avantika colony had complained to the Divisional Commissioner’s office at Meerut after which an investigation was launched by a high-level committee comprising VC & CE of GDA, Municipal Commissioner, GNN and other officials.
The GNN was also unable to carry out maintenance related tasks in the colony due to non-availability of funds that were to be given by the builder.
A notice was issued to Ansal Housing & Construction on March 11 this year but even after the elapse of 2-month time given to them the builder did not respond or did anything. Finally, today (May 21) the office of Ansal on 2nd Floor at Ansal Plaza Mall was sealed.
