The Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) has issued warning to colonisers in Noida Extension against illegal land deals. The authority has said only it can plan, develop and allot land in notified areas.
All illegal structures will be razed and costs realised from those who constructed them. Illegal colonies have begun mushrooming in these areas following court orders to quash acquisition. Colonisers feel the land, after quashing of acquisition is “free” and they can grab it and sell off. Hundreds of such registries have been executed in Noida Extension.
The authority has asked general public not to buy land in notified areas to avoid being fleeced.
Developers also said they had approached the authority for action against land grabbers and curb on sale and purchase of land through illegal means in Noida Extension.
“We are also approaching farmers. They are not against development. We all know land acquisition is key to development,” said Anil Sharma of Amrapali Group.
