Although Noida is an emerging IT and realty hub, the city lacks a functioning drainage system, reliable electricity or water supply, adequate parking, or an efficient public transportation.
The city has huge potential for growth. But only a determined administration and enlightened citizenry can bring about change in the situation.
Development of the city was the general refrain at the Hindustan Times Realty Conclave - 2013. Participants suggested measures to put the city on fast track of development. Noida authority chief executive officer (CEO) and chairman Rama Raman, who was chief guest at the conclave, addressed people’s concerns and promised to incorporate all suggestions that came up at the meeting. The conclave was organised at Noida’s Radisson Blu hotel on Monday. “The aim is to make Noida a better city. Residents, developers or public officials will have to work together,” said the chairman.
Besides CEO, Amrapali group chairman and managing director (CMD) Anil Sharma, BOP director Amit Mavi and others spoke at the meeting.
“Noida’s infrastructure is superior. The reason for its fast real estate growth is that there is only one authority which takes decisions related with infra or civic issues. However, power scenario needs to be improved,” said Sharma, who congratulated all for three authorities allocating R20,000 crore for the region’s development.
Dozens of developers, including Gaursons, Supertech, ATS, Wave, Antriksh, Cosmic, Assotech, 3A World, Apex, Bhaseen group, Rani promoters and Shubhkamna, among others were also present. Besides, residents’ welfare associations and social activist were also present at the conclave.
