Realty Awards, Affordable Housing but Degrading Services
October12, 2018 (C) Ravinder Singh

It is great to award excellence in Building Industry – present day homes are built to last 100 years or more – but events don’t discussDegrading Quality of Services in Existing Buildings enjoyed by the occupants over the years.

Awards are important to Promote Excellence and also to Discourage Devils in Industry.

It is equally important to keep existing Buildings Fully Functional To Best Standards – Maintaining Existing Buildings is Much Bigger Business but is UNORGANIZED therefore UNRECONIZED and to improve their Quality of Service and adopt Latest Technologies –SolarPV Rooftops, Solar Water Heaters, Fire Fighting & Detection, Water Supply at RWA level, Functional Drainage & Sewers etc.  

In Hauz Khas in 1957, DLF provided 24X7 water supply, Functional Sewers, Drains, Roads, Electric Supply all as per specifications etc., which all degraded and even recently laid Sewer lines back flows – Sewer Line Flows are above Water Line - in 1990 when my patent attorney built his home in DLF-I Gurugram – He has to rely on Bore-well for Water, 60 KVA generator for power supply interruptions and Bicycle Rickshaw Connectivity. 

I supervised construction of my house in 1972 as 17 years old engineering student, trained in Public Services by CPWD in 1976 from home wiring to Airport Lighting to Water Supply, Elevators to Runway Maintenance and found every Product or Device needed Major Technology and Design improvement.

I was inventing Professionally since 1974 while working at Bharat Steel Tube then one of the biggest factory in North India in Quality Control Department and within a month of joining was made responsible for Inspection of the all the items as per ISI Standards.

BST was functional for 8-9 years already I used to be in factory beyond office hours to study Problems and maintenance – many of its AUTOMATION features were disabled – There were frequent interruptions and inventing solutions – but there was no possibility of Patenting because these were localized solutions not Globalized Products.  Started filing patents in 1978 was awarded at Expo85 World Exhibition of Young Inventors. Since 1980 Writing Regularly about ‘Innovative Projects’, Public Policies, Quality of Products and Services – SPECIAL SOLUTIONS for specific problems etc.

I was discussing with a Prominent Architect how Sewer Lines are back flowing and how at Rao Tula Marg Open Top Drainage Lines are being built alongside the flyover – and along National Highways on both sides which could have provided ‘One Additional Lane’ in place of Open Top Drains. INDIA IS VERY SLOW IN GRANTING PATENTS – BUT QUICK TO ADOPT BAD PRODUCTS & TECHNOLOGIES – THAT’S HOW SERVICES DEGRADE.

My Highest TRP Rated Campaigns were on ‘Fast Electricity Meters’broadcast worldwide and predicting DEFECTS in BRT Corridors a month ahead of Inaugurations both in Delhi.
