An APPEAL from Federation of CGHS, Dwarka

Free Health Camp

As a social involvement the Federation organised a free health check up in association with Deep Jyoti NGO, Neighbourhood Ladies Get Together and Senior Citizens Association, Dwarka on 2nd May, 2010 at Nav Ratan CGHS, Plot No. 7A, Sector-23, Dwarka. Different panel of doctors including laparoscopic and general surgeon, Eye, Skin, Dental and ENT specialists attended the patinets. Viva pharmaceutical conducted sugar BP etc. tests at free of cost. Large number of residents availed this facility.

Case against DJB/DDA

The Federation had filed a writ petition in the Delhi High Court in 2005 against the DJB/DDA for not taking over/ handing over the water supply of Dwarka and subjected to paying the water charge more than 138% of other DJB areas. The case came up for final hearing on 19th May, 2010 and the advocates of DJB objected on two grounds i) the infrastructure of handing over is not completed by DDA ii) DJB supplies water to NDMC and DCB at bulk rates and they are catering the services and DDA also should allow the
same.

The advocates from DDA refuted both the points and they have cited the letters written by the Chief Engineer, DDA to the DJB that all the infrastructure including command tanks and other water supply systems are ready to handover.  They also informed that DDA is a development agency and cannot be compared with NDMC and DCB. The Hon’ble Judge also agreed with arguments of DDA. The Federation’s Advocate presented the letter dtd. 18th May, 2010 written by Chief Engineer, DDA (Dwarka Project) to his counterpart of DJB informing again that all the infrastructure for handing over the water supply is ready.

Ultimately the court directed the vice chairman, DDA as well as CEO, DJB to nominate a Senior Officer not below the rank of Chief Engineer to hold a meeting by 19-07-2010 and thereafter file a status report and minutes of the meeting before the next date of hearing, clearly giving details whether the infrastructure is ready as provided by the DDA and in case the infrastructure is not ready, the shortcomings and in case the same is ready when the DJB shall supply water to the petitioner.

As a result we have taken up with Hon’ble Chief Minister (Chairperson of DJB) and through RTI appplication to get the details for not taking over water supply by DJB.

An Appeal: The Federation of Co – operative Group Housing Societies – Dwarka Ltd. is the only apex registered body with Registrar of Co-operative Societies, Govt. of NCT of Delhi for the CGHS in Dwarka.

As of now most of the functioning co-operative group housing societies in Dwarka, have become member of the Federation. How ever a few who happened to be left out, are requested to become member of Federation, to strenghten the fight for Dwarka’s Development.
