A delegation of Greensville Boriyakala Residents Welfare Society (GBRWS) handed over a memorandum to Chhattisgarh Housing Board Chairman Bhupendra Sawanni demanding to develop basic facilities like health centre and others at the earliest at Boriyakala Housing Colony.
Chhattisgarh Housing Board (CHB) has not developed air conditioned community centre, swimming pool, children’s play area, poolside eatery, swanky restaurant, open air theatre, health centre, club, central park and other facilities at the Colony even after five years of development of the colony.

Sawanni assured the delegation to take necessary action for the development of the basic facilities soon. GBRWS President Dr N K Nigam and General Secretary L M Siddiqui alleged that the Society raised this issue various times but the officials of the Housing Board turned a deaf ear.

The CGHB has sold out approximately 1,000 houses in Boriyakala Housing Board Colony on the pretext of preparing a world-class residential conclave designed to ensure the perfect assortment of luxury, convenience, quality construction and a pristine natural environment. The Housing Board has mentioned these facilities in its brochure.
Although, about five years have passed after construction of the colony, many facilities claimed to be provided have not been provided, claimed L M Siddiqui.

Very recently during rains, the residents under the umbrella of the Society, Forest Department and Green  Army (NGO) planted 800 saplings on the assurance of CHB officials that STP water pipeline will be laid for watering the saplings.

The plants are now on the verge of drying but CHB, despite many requests in writing and personal requests, have not turned up. As a result, there is a danger of survival for the 800 plants planted in the colony.
At the entrance of Rosewood colony, there is broken cover of pothole and open drains full of dirty water breeding mosquitoes since last one year but no attention is given by CGHB officials. Any accident can take place due to open pot hole, said the residents of the colony.
