A com­fort­able place to live in

HT Estates - - Front Page -

Ihave been liv­ing in pocket F of Mayur Vi­har Phase II since the last 24 years. In th­ese long years this place has changed be­yond recog­ni­tion. I am the gen­eral sec­re­tary of the res­i­dents’ wel­fare as­so­ci­a­tion of pocket F. We take the cause of the res­i­dents and make them work for us. It’s our con­tin­u­ous ef­fort that the area is well­main­tained, green and clean.

Se­cu­rity, how­ever, is a mat­ter of con­cern here. There is need for more po­lice pa­trolling to avoid in­ci­dents of theft. We have raised this is­sue with se­nior po­lice of­fi­cers in the lo­cal po­lice sta­tion and we hope that our con­cerns will be ad­dressed.

While most parts of Delhi suf­fer from wa­ter and power cri­sis, th­ese is­sues are alien to us. Res­i­dents are quite sat­i­fied as there is reg­u­lar power and wa­ter sup­ply here.

The USP of this area is its green­ery, which is very re­fresh­ing. There are four well-main­tained parks where we go for morn­ing and evening walks. We even have a sports club in pocket C that of­fers fa­cil­i­ties for play­ing cricket, vol- ley­ball and bas­ket­ball.

Even the mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tion of­fi­cials are ef­fi­cient and co­op­er­a­tive. When­ever we ap­proach them for any work, they pay heed to our re­quests im­me­di­ately. We don’t have to go around call­ing them for days.

It is due to th­ese rea­sons that prop­erty rates have in­creased here in the last few years. All the ba­sic ameni­ties are avail­able eas­ily.

The only ma­jor is­sue here is re­gard­ing ac­cess to Mayur Vi­har Phase I Metro sta­tion. Though it is only four km away, there is no di­rect ac­cess.

We ei­ther have to opt for rick­shaws or our per­sonal trans­port to get there. There is an as­so­ci­a­tion club where res­i­dents gather dur­ing fes­ti­vals.
