‘Make po­lice pa­trolling reg­u­lar’

HT Estates - - HTESTATES -

Ihave been liv­ing in Ashok Vi­har since child­hood. We stayed in Phase 1 for sev­eral years be­fore my fam­ily moved to Phase 3 more than five years ago. The area is con­ve­niently lo­cated and is well­con­nected to other parts of the city. The best thing about this area is its green­ery with sev­eral parks in all phases. The so­ci­eties here are well­con­structed and have their re­spec­tive res­i­dents’ wel­fare as­so­ci­a­tions. There are a num­ber of eat­ing joints, restau­rants and shop­ping op­tions for res­i­dents, the most popular one be­ing Deep Mar­ket in Phase 1. In terms of ameni­ties, the area has it all — power, wa­ter sup­ply, pub­lic trans­port, mar­kets, schools, banks and hos­pi­tals.

Some of the im­por­tant is­sues that need to be dealt with in­clude park­ing for res­i­dents, traf­fic snarls and safety. For res­i­dents of Phase 3 and those stay­ing in Shakti Na­gar Ex­ten­sion, the huge drain con­nect­ing Shakti Na­gar to Ashok Vi­har poses a se­ries of prob­lems. Though there is oc­ca­sional po­lice pa­trolling, steps should be taken to make it reg­u­lar, es­pe­cially dur­ing late hours.

We a l s o n e e d m o r e a u t o r i c k s h aw s to ply fre­quently in the area as com­mut­ing to other parts of the city be­comes a has­sle at times.

One can find all types of houses here in­clud­ing apart­ments and in­de­pen­dent floors, which makes it unique. There are cer­tain ar­eas which need more street­lights. We also look for­ward to spe­cial func­tions or­gan­ised by the lo­cal RWAs dur­ing fes­ti­vals and other oc­ca­sions. The civic body should also build more play­grounds for chil­dren. Over­all, liv­ing here is peace­ful but there is still room for im­prove­ment.
