Board irons out development bottlenecks
Jan 12, 2013, 01.41AM IST TNN

NOIDA: Several development projects were approved in the joint board meeting of the Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway authorities on Friday. Even though the main focus remained on boosting connectivity and developing industrial clusters, the authorities even attempted to pacify agitating farmers by amending provisions related to land acquisition.

Noida Authority CEO Sanjeev Saran said rapid population growth has led to an urgent need to improve the transportation system. An additional 170 buses, including 20 semi low-floor buses and 50 feeder vehicles, will be started at the cost of Rs 40.5 crore. "The Authority will develop the city bus terminal in Sector 82 on 3.9 hectare with world-class infrastructure," he said.

Concerned over rampant accidents on Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, an Rs 15 crore Intelligent Transport System (ITS) will be installed to monitor and manage traffic flow.

To counter farmers' agitation, the board passed several amendments in the provisions to sort out abadi regularization, disbursement of developed land, enhanced compensation and inherited and non-inherited property issues.

"The land in Gautam Budh Nagar district was acquired in three phase in 1976, 1979 and 1997. Earlier, those farmers whose land was acquired in 1976 were eligible to get 5% abadi land, while those whose land was acquired between 1979 and 1997 were kept out of pool. The board has approved to grant abadi land to these farmers too," said Rajesh Prakash, administrative officer, Noida Authority.

"The minimum size of developed plots to be given to farmers whose land was acquired will be 40sq.mtr. The 5% developed plots will also be given to those farmers who were found eligible for plots below 40sq.mtr," Prakash added.

Around Rs 650 crore has already been disbursed towards enhanced compensation to farmers and the board has approved another Rs 450 crore. For village development work, the engineering department will not need approval from the land records department now.

The number of highrises in the city is expected to increase in the next two years, so there is a need of updated fire safety infrastructure. "The Authority will buy 72m hydraulic machines in case of fires in highrises," Saran said. A 1MW solar power plant will be developed on a 5 acre plot over the Sector 135-152 irrigation drain mainly for streetlights.

  • With Change of govt. in UP and Yogiji as CM , there seems to be a lot of hope for FLAT BUYERS of NOIDA.
    Noida Authority is reactivated thanks to pressure from Govt. Buyers are getting patient hearings. Builders are getting thrasing from NA in the presence of Buyers and press.
    All complaints filed by BUYERS group / RWA are being attended to and builders are compelled to submit definite plan.
    Even buyers of under construction projects are getting active and putting pressure on builders.

    Latest case is Lotus Greens Project " Lotus Arena Phase 1 & 2 in Sec.79 Noida".

    Booking was done in 2013/14. Builders have collected 30 to 40%. However construction in several Towers is yet to start.

    Frustrated with Builders approach flat buyers of Lotus Arena Phase 1 & 2 have joined hands and formed
    " Lotus Arena Buyers Association".
    They have filed complaint against builders with Noida Authority. Taking cognisance of buyers complaint, Noida Authority has called a TRIPARTITE MEETING on 21st Jun'17 at NA office .
    Lotus Arena Buyers Association is mobilising buyers support through FB and whatsapp.

    Good Development fo Flat buyers of NOIDA>

    Having seen this with every govt change (check newspapers archive after Mayawati left) i will say this is regular govt and political propaganda only.

    Lets see if we see real progress on ground and RERA is not diluted by govt. I still can't believe any political party will go against businessmen as they are the one who fund parties in India.

  • Carry out safety audit of under-construction buildings in Noida: Nefowa Home buyers have already raised the issue with Noida Authority, industry minister Satish Mahana and MLA Pankaj SinghSharmila Bhowmick | TNN | May 22, 2017, 07:56 IST

    NOIDA: In the wake of complaints about poor construction quality raised by the home buyers who have recently claimed possession in Noida and Greater Noida, Noida Extension Flat Owners Welfare Association (Nefowa) has demanded that the authorities concerned should carry out a safety audit of the under-construction buildings.

    "We demand that the authority should now conduct a safety audit of all the under-construction apartments to check the quality of construction material, and safety measures being followed for disaster management. Realtors cannot ignore the fact that Noida falls in the seismic zone 4 and it is also close to river Yamuna,” Indrish Gupta, co-founder, Nefowa, said.

    Meanwhile, the buyers have also raised concerns over a proposed increase of density in per-person-per-hectare (ppph) occupancy permissible for Noida and Greater Noida to 1650 in NCR Planning Board’s, draft Master Plan 2031. The existing ppph of the city is 500.

    Home buyers have already raised the issue with Noida Authority, industry minister Satish Mahana and MLA Pankaj Singh. With an increased permissible population density, the city can accommodate more real estate projects; however, buyers claim, this would lead to a civic crisis. The buyers also claim it can also lead to environmental hazards.

    “From a 500 ppph density as per the Masterplan 2021, there’s a jump to 1650 ppph in the Masterplan 2031. We had opposed this move in a meeting with Noida Authority officials in January 2017. Noida or Greater Noida is not prepared to tackle this kind of pressure because the city is in seismic zone 4. Further, it will send the city’s civic system out of gear. More density may lead to accommodation of more apartments but it can cause long-term damage to the city,” Shailender Barnwal, a homebuyer and a Nefowa member said.

    “For all stakeholders, rapid and random increase of population density could have serious ramifications,” Gupta added.

    Was it implemented by state govt who came to power 2months back? Keep the discussion relevant please.

    As you raised it, demonitization didnot impact builders who contribute big to parties and neither was supposed to impact. Lodha, shobha, DLF or even Jaypee were never accepting in cash. A good implementation of RERA for even under construction apartments will impact them so lets see if govt will agree on it.

  • Remove unauthorised RO plants: RWA body to Noida authority The Federation of Noida Residents Welfare Associations (FONRWA) demanded that these unauthorised RO plants be shut down and builders be stopped from extracting groundwater leading to not only their low levels, but also wastage.Meenakshi Sinha | TNN | May 24, 2017, 11:00 IST

    NOIDA: The RWA federation wrote to Noida Authority CEO Amit Mohan Prasad on Tuesday on the many unauthorised RO (reverse osmosis) plants operating in residential sectors as well as wastage of groundwater by builders in the city.

    The Federation of Noida Residents Welfare Associations (FONRWA) demanded that these unauthorised RO plants be shut down and builders be stopped from extracting groundwater leading to not only their low levels, but also wastage.

    The RWA federation also urged the Authority to draft clear plans and policies with immediate effect for rainwater harvesting in industries, institutions, official buildings and parks across the city to avoid future shortage of clean drinking water in the city as faced by many sectors currently.

    “Many residents and RWAs have complained to us about unauthorised RO water plants operating in their sectors or neighbouring villages leading to not only wastage of groundwater, which they extract to bottle RO water, but also wastage of untreated water flowed into the drains,” said N P Singh, FONRWA president.

    Singh said the builders, with many projects across the city, were an additional source of the water wastage in the city, what with their unhindered extraction of groundwater to carry on construction as well as supply work in the many multi-storeyed housing complexes.

    “These unauthorised RO water plants and the builders’ projects are the main reason for the constant depletion of groundwater levels to nearly under 200 feet from the earlier 60ft in the city. Unless the Authority curtails this menace, we are on the verge of an acute water shortage in the coming days,” Singh said.

    He said FONRWA has written to CEO Prasad to draw up plans with immediate effect for rainwater harvesting in industries, institutions, official buildings and parks across the city to avoid drinking water shortage.

    RO plants are really bad, they waste 50% to 60% of water depending on the water composition, settings and filters used.
    It is sad to see so much precious water wasted in this manner.

    Not sure what you referring to here but if you referring to 2nd last post then it is utter non-sense.

    i dont know what transparency you talking about but totally agree this is between noida authority/govt and orginal land owners. Builders should not be asked to pay extra cost. They bought at rate Noida Authority wanted. We bought from builders at rate builder wanted.

    if govt wants to bring transparency then make original officers and politicians who created this mess liable to pay this compensation and not endusers like us or NA who is supposed to spend money on infra development and city management. Otherwise this is just bs from govt and evryone else.

    What will be the repercussions on the projects where the builder has defaulted on payment....?.... I think payment of the amount on cost of plot over 10 years period on installment was the arrangement between the Noida Authority and the builders...... How the Buyer know that the builder will stop payment after five years...... Noida Authority can not cancel the allotment of land
    ​or stop the OC/CC.... Or take any step which effects the Buyer on a agreement which was signed between the Authority and the Builder........... Anyone has different views.... Please share...
