The Uttar Pradesh government-appointed three-member ministerial committee on Monday expressed their disappointment with the Noida and Greater Noida authorities. The officials informed the panel about their inability to delivery 50,000 flats as directed by the chief minister. Top officials from the Noida and Greater Noida authorities said they would be able to deliver 32,525 flats but these flats are not completely ready for allotment but were near complication.
Chief minister Yogi Adityanath on September 12, directed the Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway authorities to ensure delivery of 50,000 flats to homebuyers by December. The committee includes industries minister Satish Mahana, urban housing minister Suresh Khanna and minister of state for industry and sugar mills Suresh Rana. Minister told officials that if they are not able to ensure delivery they should make it clear to them. so that government can take actions on its own.
On Monday, the committee directed the police and the Greater Noida authority to take actions against the builders who are not completing projects or addressing issues homebuyers are facing. The committee directed SSP Love Kumar to file FIR against builders if the buyers want the same. Additionally, the committee directed the Greater Noida authority to file FIR against eight builders who are not delivering flats to buyers, as promised.
Homebuyers had demanded that errant builders should be booked. Neither the ministers nor authority have shared a list of the names of the said builders. Atul Kumar Rai, additional CEO of the Noida authority, said, “The authority is ready to speedup issuance of occupancy certificate to a housing project and ensure delivery to buyers but it is the builders who need to submit documents, such as fire NOC, environmental clearances etc.”
“It is the builders who will deliver flats not the authority. The builders have submitted a list of 14,000 flats that they will delivery in phases. If they share delivery plans of more flats, we will provide the same to the state government,” BK Tripathi, additional CEO of Greater Noida authority, said.
