Nearly 80 families in the society were asked to pay Rs 6000 as installation charges by Mahanagar Gas Limited. In the month of January, the residents has paid up the amount in the form of a DD. Now the residents have pipelines connected to their building and installed Gas suppliers in their kitchen but there is no gas. Its been over six months now but residents are yet to receive LPG gas from these pipelines. Complaints were filed many times with the company by resident N K Gheewala but to no avail. Nearly all the societies have been connected with this gas pipeline and if the company is charging Rs 6000 for connection per household, then the amount runs in crores. Speaking to NMTV News, residents of the sector say that they have been fooled by the company. Some women even alleged that Mahanagar Gas Limited forced them to pay up for the connections.
