Nirmala Sitharaman and Narendra Tomar to be Chief Guests of Mahasammelan for Group Housing Societies 
New Delhi, July 12, 2019: Rajya Sabha MP and former Union Minister Vijay Goel led a high-level delegation of the Group Housing Societies to Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Anil Baijal at his residence. 
 
Besides Goel, the delegation comprised MP Parvesh Singh Verma, MP Hansraj Hans, MLA O P Sharma, Chairman of Standing Committee of North MCD Jai Prakash, Convener Madan Khatri, and former MLA Jai Bhagwan Aggarwal. On the part of the authorities concerned, DDA Vice President Tarun Kapoor, DJB CEO Nikhil Kumar, North MCD Commissioner Varsha Joshi and Additional Registrar of Registrar of Cooperative Societies (RCS) Ranjit Singh and Assistant MG Satya were present in the meeting.
 
Goel said that the DDA would soon issue directions for the redevelopment of the Group Housing Societies to provide bigger flats with all amenities to 10 lakh residents living in 1200 societies. There is an atmosphere of jubilation among the people flat owners in Group Housing over the meeting.
 
Lieutenant Governor ordered DDA Vice President Tarun Kapoor to take immediate action on the redevelopment of the Group Housing Societies in a time-bound manner and said that the plots of the societies should be converted to freehold so that no permission is required by the residents wanting to sell their flats.
 
Goel said that since the Muncipal Corporation of Delhi is not providing any civic service in the societies, it should stop collecting property tax or should offer rebate. No tax should be levied even on the common area. Since the Delhi Jal Board is not providing separate connections to the flats, it should also offer rebate on the bills. North MCD Commissioner Varsha Joshi assured immediate resolution of garbage disposal at housing societies and a policy framework to scrap levying of tax on the common area.
 
Goel said the agitation for the Group Housing Society is gaining momentum. Delhi’s first Mahasammelan for Group Housing Societies is scheduled to be held on Sunday, 14 July at Talkatora Stadium. Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Panchayati Raj and Rural Development Minister Narendra Tomar would be the Chief Guest of the Mahasammelan, while BJP National Vice President Shyam Jaju and MP R K Sinha would also be present in the Mahasammelan. Organised by the Federation of the Group Housing Societies, the programme would be presided by MP Vijay Goel himself. Besides, MP Parvesh Verma, Hansraj Hans, Ramesh Bidhuri and Meenakshi Lekhi would attend the programme as special guests.
 
Goel shared with the Lt. Governor the issues of the Group Housing societies viz. redevelopment of the society flats with additional FAR, free-hold of common area, utilization of Municipal local area development funds, removing Dhalao for garbage disposal, levying tax despite the absence of civic amenities, levying a tax on the common area, a single connection of water and sewer to the societies by the Delhi Jal Board, the appointment of auditors and tenure of administrators in RCS, and removal of unsafe transformers put up by power firms among other issues.
 
DJB CEO Nikhil Kumar was ordered by the Lt. Governor to meet the delegation of the Group Housing Societies on the number of water connections and finalize the rebate policy on the water-sewer bills at the earliest.
