Five real estate developers have received letters from the subdivisional magistrate (SDM) about the draining of water from their projects.

The response came when NHAI complained to the deputy commissioner in Mohali.

The DC requested that permanent pumps be installed in key locations and that traffic bottlenecks on the main route be reduced.

The DC requested that the NHAI road leading to Chandigarh, Ambala, and Patiala be maintained so that traffic moved easily.

The DC was informed by SDM Himanshu Gupta that five notices had been sent to certain housing societies and projects.

The DC also looked through NHAI's ongoing projects and requested that outstanding work be expedited.
