1, and Sun City gave mixed reactions to the colony transfer from builder to


. DLF 2 residents expressed preference for private over public management but those from DLF 3 said they were happy with the move, adding that the government should make provisions in the Plotted Areas Act, enabling RWAs to collect fees for non-mandatory services such as security.

“We are excited about the MCG takeover. On Wednesday, a delegation from DLF 3 visited the MCG commissioner to complete all formalities for the takeover so that development work can be initiated at the earliest. We also requested him to start development work not part of DPR such as installing lights in parks, tiling around parks, construction of STPs, providing gazebos in parks for senior citizens etc,” said Gaurav, a resident. He added, “MCG has also written a letter to the DLF management, asking them to complete development work so that MCG might proceed with the takeover.”

However, DLF 2 residents are apprehensive. “We are not fans of the DLF management but private agencies have an edge over public ones. We have been seeing that areas under MCG suffer,” said Amit Kocher, a resident.

In Sun City, residents who spoke to TOI expressed their trust in MCG. “It is a positive step,” said Abhey Poonia, a resident, adding, “At least MCG is a responsible authority that has funds at its disposal.”

In Sushant Lok 1 too, residents expressed similar sentiments. “We just hope that all hurdles are removed and MCG starts work immediately. There are no good roads or functional lights here. The sewer lines are overflowing,” said Neelu Sharma, a resident.
