Builders on Thursday assured a committee of three ministers, appointed by the Uttar Pradesh state cabinet, that they will be delivering 50,000 flats in the next three months in Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway areas, officials said.
“Around 20 builders met the panel of ministers and assured them that they will be delivering 20,000 flats in the next three months. However, many builders are yet to give assurances to the committee about the same,” said Dr Prabhat Kumar, Meerut division commissioner and chairman of Yamuna Expressway industrial development authority, after attending the meeting.
The committee met with a delegation of homebuyers and builders at India International Centre in Delhi to discuss the issues faced by buyers and builders.
The committee also met with the officials of Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna authorities during the meeting which started at 11am and ended at 6pm.
Industries minister Satish Mahana, urban housing minister Suresh Khanna and state minister (independent charge) of cane development and sugar mills Suresh Rana are the members of the committee.
The panel will again meet the officials of three authorities to review the progress of various infrastructure and other projects on Friday in Delhi.
“The scheduled meeting on Friday in Delhi will focus only on progress of projects, including parking facility, road resurfacing and hospital construction among others. The committee will check if there is any delay in ongoing projects or not. And the panel will seek answers for the delay, if any,” said a Noida authority official.
Apart from discussing homebuyers’ issues, the ministers also discussed civic issues in Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway areas.
The committee took up civic issues as the three industrial development authorities which had been formed for industrial development also take care of the civic work.
Residents complain that the three authorities are allegedly unable to address civic issues adequately and, hence, they have demanded a municipal body to be formed to properly look after civic issues.
Keeping in mind this demand, the ministers’ panel formed two separate committees with an aim to address civic and traffic issues.
The committee headed by Dr Prabhat Kumar will work to streamline municipal functions in the three authorities. Noida authority chairman and chief executive officer Alok Tandon will head the committee that will work on improving traffic management.
“The panel formed two committees for better municipal functioning and addressing traffic congestion issues. Now, detailed terms and reference will be drafted under which two committees will function. Once terms and reference will be made, we will select the members of these two committees to start our work,” said Kumar.
