Recent studies that were made by medical professionals of Ganga Ram Hospital in Delhi reveal that there are toxic heavy metals found in the air. This study was made around Sector 67, Gurugram.

For the resident’s main concern, it’s the rampant construction and unfinished roads, along with a construction waste dump that’s found on the Maidawas Road, opposite Victory Valley Apartments. Resident’s are complaining that the size of the dump has been increasing for two years now, and hasn’t been removed despite the National Green Tribunal (NGT) issuing the directives over a year ago.

They even took the matter to the NGT in 2017, claiming that the site is in violation of Construction & Demolition (C&D) Waste Management Rules (2012), and poses a health risk for locals.
