Rs 10 lakh for 100 houses is pittance. With stairs, roofs, pipes and balconies crumbling, I wonder if this Rs 10 lakh can do much?
These houses will be the first ones to crumble in an earthquake, such is their vulnerability. They are virtual coffins.
For years poor maintenance of DDA group housing societies has been a sore point with flat owners. Finally, there is a silver lining in the clouds.
DDA has decided to pay up for maintenance and repair the common areas in these societies. Now, each DDA group housing society or colony comprising 100 or more houses will get Rs 10 lakh each as one-time payment for upkeep.
