Chief minister Yogi Adityanath will hold a meeting with Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway industrial development authority officials to review the progress on flat delivery issues faced by homebuyers and land audit reports, among other issues, in Lucknow on Tuesday.

On August 22, the Uttar Pradesh CM constituted a three-member committee to look into homebuyers’ issues. The committee comprises industries minister Satish Mahana, urban housing minister Suresh Khanna and minister of state for industry and sugar mills Suresh Rana. The committee in the past had many meetings with buyers and officials to solve the issues faced by the buyers. However, the issues are yet to be addressed, claim buyers.

In November, the government had directed the chief executive officer of three authorities to conduct an audit to ascertain how much land is grabbed by the land mafia.

Chief executive officer, additional chief executive officer and officer on special duty from the three authorities are expected to attend the meeting in Lucknow.

“The CM wants to take stock of the progress made on all infrastructure projects, buyers’ issues and land audit report among other issues. He will check what are the hurdles to addressing and solving buyers’ issues. Also, the UP government’s main motive is to finish ongoing developmental projects without delay,” a senior Noida authority official said.

The Noida authority needs to free 600 hectares of its prime land, which is encroached on by small developers, land grabbers and farmers. The authority has acquired 12,000 hectares of agricultural land for setting up industries and residential purposes since 1976. The authority took away the land for urbanisation and also paid compensation. But out of 12,000 hectares, 600 hectares is encroached on since the last 40 years due to poor monitoring by the officials concerned. Similarly the Greater Noida authority and the YEIDA has also readied the land audit report.

“We will inform the government about the land audit. The report consist of the exact details of the land which needs to be freed,” Amarnath Upadhyay, additional chief executive officer, YEIDA, said.
