Till then all residents are requested to bear withus and adhere to traffic rules.Wrong Parking –Designated parking slots with appropriate parking stickers have been allotted to all the residents, the guard on dutyensures that only cars with stickers enter the basement.

Therefore, as an added facility the guard will maintain details of the car parked wrongly whichsubsequently will be provided to the residents to sort matter thereafterCommunity Signages –Common area signage’s have recently been placed as reminders for everyone to follow speed limits, do notpluck flowers, keep city clean etc. It’s an appeal to all residents to kindly follow these simple rules and contribute in making Vatika Citya beautiful place to live in.Water Testing Report –We wish to inform you that water purification procedures are working fine in the City and water testing fromGovernment authorized laboratories is done quarterly.

Going forward copies of the test reports will be placed on the notice boards every quarter.Improvement in the Electricity Supply –Since electric supply to Vatika City is provided by DHVBN substation through an 8 km longfeeder line, there have been number of faults in the feeder line during the last summer/monsoon months. To overcome this recurringproblem we have instituted a systematic defect investigation and repair action plan. As per the plan, the defective Grid Operatedswitches, ABC cable junctions, coupling assemblies, earthing equipment and insulation isolators in the transmission lines are beingchecked and repaired/replaced. The feeder line is now under regular surveillance by our special task force, which has reduced trippingfrequency resulting in less DG sets usage. This has reduced the overall costs and has enhanced availability of power from DHVBN.Improvement in Security Services –A number of measures have been initiated by us for improvement in security services. Thecontrol of all access points is now with one Security agency to improve accountability. Security supervisor strength has beenaugmented to meet the requirement. Regular training on soft skills and duty awareness is being imparted. Review of the guarddeployment and reporting procedures have already been carried out. Please remember that the Security staff is there for your safety,we seek your cooperation to allow them to fulfill their duties.

Department and proposed further action are given below as communicated by Vatika Ltd., the Developer of Vatika City.“ A few yearsago, during our rounds to Vatika City, we noticed this piece of land and decided to apply for permissions to use this space as achildren’s play zone area which in turn freed the parks within the colony as green areas vis-à-vis constructing play areas within them.Importantly, this piece of land, sandwiched between Uppal Southend and our colony could have become a dwelling space for migrantlabor had Vatika not applied for the necessary permission, later on Permission was applied for and granted to Vatika by the WaterSupply Department. The permission includes erecting of fences, concreting surfaces, and making use of the space as long as there areno permanent structures”.
