Dear Fellow Owners,You must be aware of the upcoming AGM of WHCAOWA and subsequent election of a new Executive Council comprising 10 members from amongst us.

You may also be aware of the numerous challenges that we face today, resulting from years of mismanagement by DLF, apathy of current EC members and poor enforcement of rules and regulations, besides discriminatory practices of DLF against some of our fellow owners.

There’s still hope of making Westend Heights (WH) a better managed, vibrant and progressive community in times to come. Many of us have directly and indirectly contributed to the society through our voluntary efforts in last 3 years. Now its time to elect our representatives and make substantial progress towards our end goal.

The new EC is slated to have 10 members. Following is the list of 10 well-known, dedicated and committed persons who have come forward to become members of the new EC, who have our collective best interest in mind:-

Mr Bharath MD
Mrs Bobby Jolly
Mr Dwairath Dhar
Mr Jijo T George
Mr Mogishuddin Raza
Mr Modin Bude Shaik (Mohi)
Mr Nitesh G Bhat
Mr Prabhakar P Suvarna
Col Prasanna Kumar
Ms Sonal Sharma

This team has deliberated upon their agenda and discussed with a wide array of residents (owners and tenants) for the betterment of our society and chalked a path forward. Following are their key commitments:-


1. Facilitate membership of all buyers, who have paid their FDN, into WHCAOWA, with voting rights, within a definite time frame. This would ensure ‘inclusive’ nature of our association and avoid exclusion of any section/ group of buyers.

2. Facilitate expansion of EC to a larger size body and ensure fairness in representation, besides reasonable work distribution. This would be undertaken through re-election of EC in a time-bound manner.

Do it the right way

3. Amend the current Bye-laws of WHCAOWA, which are known to have many errors and ambiguities, besides violations of KSRA 1960 (under which WHCAOWA is registered).

4. Initiate and steer the process of forming our Residents Welfare Association (RWA) under KAOA 1972, which is the right legislation for registering the RWAs in Karnataka.

Well being by Public-Spirited minds

5. Smooth functioning of WHCAOWA in the interim period to ensure good quality of life, upkeep & maintenance of the complex, reduced cost of maintenance and overall improvement in the quality of our community by addressing important issues in immediate term as well as working towards well-thought long term initiatives, based on common good and majority views of the owners.
