Constructed at a cost of around Rs 25 crore under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission, 696 flats meant for BPL families at Sector 5 in Bahadurgarh town have been awaiting allotment since 2015.
The HSVP had invited applications from eligible beneficiaries in 2015, but the process could not be completed.
Meanwhile, as many as 2,500 doors, 1,100 windows and 400 iron railings have been stolen from the flats. The thefts came to light when HSVP officials inspected the flats recently. Sandeep Dahiya, HSVP Executive Engineer, said a team had been formed to finalise eligible candidates on the basis of parameters fixed for the allotment.
“The flats have been lying unallotted for the past five years as the district administration is yet to send us the list of beneficiaries. Moreover, the private contractor who built the flats is responsible for their maintenance and security as the houses are yet to be handed over to the HSVP,” maintained Dahiya.
He said a case had been lodged at the Sector 6 police station in Bahadurgarh for the thefts.
Additional Deputy Commissioner Jag Niwas could not be contacted despite repeated attempts.
