The Residents’ Welfare Association continues to face multiple challenges including maintaining the cleanliness of the Block (a number of garbage spots), illegal parking by office goers from 7th Main, illegal commercilization, street vendors taking over entire footpaths with their activities; need for improvements to the First Block Park, enhanced Security for all and need to monitor blatant illegal constructions where setback and FAR rules are not being adhered to.
