Melbourne: The organisers have made "some" progress with regard to pending work at the Games village but persistent rains are hampering the speed, CGF CEO Mike Hooper said on Wednesday.
Delhi, the host city, is experiencing heavy rains in a prolonged monsoon season.
Some of the resident towers at the Village are in good condition but there are many that need repairs and cleaning and consistent rains are playing havoc with the work.
"When it rains here it buckets down, it is not helping at all," Hooper said.

Asked if he could guarantee the Games would proceed, Hooper refused to make any comments.
"I don't want to give a response to that and let it be taken out of context. All we are focusing on is getting the work done. There has been progress, but a lot more needs to done before the arrival of the teams [from today] to October 2nd," Hooper told ' Sydney Morning Herald'.
