Management of Shri Radha Group Housing Society, Plot No. 3, Sector 9, Dwarka has decided that the tenants will pay Rs. 1,500 per month as maintenance charges, while the owners will continue to pay Rs 1,000. It has also been proposed to charge Rs. 1000 per month for the second car and Rs 1500 for the third car from the tenants but this will not be charged from the flat-owners. Why this discrimination? The tenants do not use more facilities or parking space to warrant them for paying additional amount while getting same or equal services/ facilities. This amounts to unjustified discrimination between haves and have-nots.
It seems that the Management of the Society considers the tenants as second-class residents if not third class. Tomorrow, such practice may be followed by the Managements of others societies. Mr. Ashok Chaitanya, Advocate said that the practice may be declared illegal, if challenged.
