Noida authority officials said they will finish one round of all tripartite meetings among officials, builders and homebuyers by June 30. These meetings are being held to address homebuyers’ issues on the instructions of Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath.
Homebuyers are hopeful that they will soon get solutions to their problems after the meetings are done.
“If the builders do not solve homebuyers’ issues even after the first round of meetings, we will conduct a second round to review the builders’ work and check if they have kept to promises made in the meetings. We hope to finish one round and cover all stuck projects by June-end. We need to send a report on each project by June 30 to the UP government,” said Shishir Singh, an additional chief executive officer of the Noida authority.
Till now, the authority has held meetings with regard to 20 projects at the Indira Gandhi Kala Kendra in Sector 6.
The authority has scheduled meetings till June 7 and it will release the schedule for more such meetings after June 7, officials said.
Common issues faced by homebuyers are the absence of common civic amenities, builders not obtaining requisite occupancy certificates due to which buyers are unable to register their properties, lack of fire safety systems and lifts besides facilities such as swimming pool and clubs. Other issues include no Ganga water connection or power connection. Some builders have also violated the sanctioned layout maps, buyers alleged.
However, not all builders who have attended the meetings have promised to deliver flats to buyers and the authority is yet to take action against them, as promised to buyers.
“We will discuss issues in each project on a case-to-case basis. If need be, we will take the matter to our board for necessary approvals to reach to a solution. We will take the final decision after assessing the issues from all angles,” Amit Mohan Prasad, chief executive officer of the Noida authority, said.
The authority may also take approvals from the UP government on some issues. “For financial issues such as interest waiver, the authority will seek final approvals from the UP government,” ACEO Singh said.
