MHADA / Safety hazards and unwanted remains in Alibhai Premji's Building
I, Mr. Hasan Radiowala residing at 204/205, Tyre Terrace, Bhadkamkar Marg, 04th Floor, Next to Apsara Multiplexer, Grant Rd. (E), Mumbai – 400 007, would like to complaint against the MHADA Contractor Mr. Arif / Mr. Anif and appeal for justice for the below mentioned concerns:
1. Safety Concern Date : 27th Dec 2010
Due to the construction work commenced in our building there is lot of irregularities seen by the Contractor wherein he is not showing any interest in terms of safety of the people residing in the building.
It is also seen that during the construction the contractor needs break down all the structures which are damaged and repair the same accordingly. However during the break down most of the remains (rabit) just stay on the main staircase unattended during the day. Now since it’s a residential building there are families which reside and commute every day.
The most residents in the building are senior citizens above the age of 65yrs. I reside with my father and mother who too our senior citizens. Due to the construction work all the remains were piled on the main staircase due to which my father lost his balance and slipped hurting himself.
I’m extremely disappointed by method of contractor working since it’s a threat to life of my parents and the other people of the building. Hence it’s an appeal to get me a compensation for the losses.
2. Metal Trauma
After the incident with my father is suffering from mental trauma, where he is not able to climb or descend the staircase due t the threat to his life.
We need serious attention so that the construction work can successfully complete.
3. Disgraceful events and humiliation.
Morning 27th Dec 2010 before leaving for work I informed and alerted all the labors who were working to pick up the remains (rabit) from the staircase so that it does not cause any harm to the residents of the building. However no action was taken.
The same day while my father was descending the stairs which was now filled and piled with at least 3fts of remains (rabit) slipped. However instead of helping the old aged man to get up and escorted to his house the labors had a very good laugh on the incident which was very unethical and insulting.
4. Irregularities in work
Once the work is commenced there is no one to supervise the progress. The contractor comes down to the site commands the allocated work and comes back the other day.
Since he has more than three sites to visit he is not able to dedicate his complete attention to our site which might even cause our lives.
There are unnecessary delays too, at times on asking the reasons for the same the contractor states “The amount for cement and other things required for construction was not allocated or approved. The approval would be given only after the Sr. Engg. Visits the site. Further delay is due to them.” Hence there is a blame game played and he walks-out.
5. Unethical Language Used.
Every-time if there are any issues to be followed up or concerns to rectify the contractor clearly warns us that he would leave the construction as is, in the middle and we have to stay in as is condition.
Hence I plead a compensation for the same OR change in the contractor.
