Garden City township was started in 2010 by DLF in association with Awas Vikas Parishad. The township spread across 2500 acres of land also included 1200 houses for Economically Weaker Section (EWS) and Lower Income Group (LIG) along with houses for people belonging to higher income groups. At first, DLF refused to build these many houses claiming the scarcity of land. DLF also asked the Parishad to provide them higher subsidies for building EWS and LIG houses, but the Parishad refused to accept the terms. After which, DLF slowed the process of building the abovementioned house. Ultimately, allottees had to bear the brunt of the tussle between the DLF and the Parishad. After five years of the commencement when the issue became hot in 2015 following a number of complaints from allottees, the Parishad issued a strongly worded letter to DFL, which also yielded no result. A few months later, DLF handed over possession to 25 percent of the allottees but rest 75 percent are still on their toes to get possession.
