Noida authority chairman Alok Sinha on Saturday directed the authority staff to improve basic civic amenities in the city in a short time frame to provide relief to residents.
Sinha met with the authority staff and all top officials, including Noida CEO Amit Mohan Prasad, Gautam Budh Nagar district magistrate Brijesh Narayan Singh, senior superintendent of police Love Kumar, at the authority’s Sector 6 administrative building. The meeting went on from 10am to 1.30pm.
This was Sinha’s first visit to Noida as the authority’s chairman. Sinha is also the principal secretary of the Uttar Pradesh industrial development authority.
He briefed the officials about the need to streamline basic civic facilities — better traffic management, improving sanitation work and reducing pollution in the city.
“The authority should refurbish roads, clean drains before the monsoon, beautify Noida-Delhi entry points, ensure proper cleanliness and remove clear all encroachments on public land,” Sinha said.
Initially, the authority will identify four roads to refurbish. Four major drains — irrigation drain, Harola drain, sector 21/25 drain and NEPZ drain — will be cleaned thoroughly before the monsoon. Sinha instructed workers to ensure that they are “stink-free”.
“In the beginning, four roads should be made dust-free. Later, all roads should be made dust-free so that motorists and pedestrians do not face problems. The authority should chalk out a detailed plan in this regard in order to ensure a cleaner environment,” Sinha said.
Following Sinha’s directions, senior officials, including the CEO, additional and deputy CEOs, have decided to inspect areas between 7am and 9am to ensure cleanliness.
The authority will beautify all Noida-Delhi border points with flowers and plants, officials said. Also, all agencies concerned will ensure that all roads are in a motorable condition.
“We will identify four roads in 15 days and make these dust-free. We will identify five big encroachments in the next one week. We will clear encroachments from all public land in phased manner,” an authority official said.
