Andhra Pradesh urged to check quality

DC | 20th Jul 2013
Visakhapatnam: With  Vuda’s decision to revive  its prestigious housing project Harita, which had been stalled for four years, the Vuda Harita Allottees Association and the Vuda Harita Victims Forum have demanded that the government constitute a five-member committee with civil engineering background from among the allottees to review the monthly progress.
The Forum members on Friday held a meeting and said that the five-member committee will  monitor the quality of construction on a periodical basis at the Vuda’s technical and engineering meetings of the project.
“This would help reduce the anguish of  the 710 allottees  regarding  the quality of construction as well as the strength of the  structures as half-complete structures were exposed to the vagaries of the weather for  nearly  three years and are  fully rusted,” said Prof. Ghan Bhuktha of the association.
He added that from the beginning, the Vuda Harita victims have been demanding that  work start immediately, maintain the quality at every stage of construction and that no extra burden  due to the delay  of the  project to be passed on to the victims for no fault of theirs.
“Now that the construction has been  initiated and quality in construction is being assured, the Vuda Harita Victims Forum appeals to Vuda and the government to make an unequivocal statement that there would not be any more unpleasant surprises for the victims in future and that Vuda  would stick to the originally agreed price. Having paid nearly Rs 120 crore with  14 per cent penal interest on delayed payments, the 710 victims have been thrown into  deep financial crisis by Vuda’s four-year delay in  construction and handing over of the project. The victims cannot suffer  any more trauma,” said Prof. V. Bala Mohan Das.
The victims had borrowed huge amounts from banks and NBFCs and finance lending agencies  to pursue the Vuda Harita dream project promoted by Vuda as Singapore Class Township for  delivery in November 2011.
