Noida: Residents of over a dozen high rises in Sector 75, Noida, on Sunday staged a silent protest march against developers and Noida Industrial Development Authority for allegedly not paying attention to their civic woes.
They said that the entire sector, which is densely populated with over 12 high rises, lack in basic amenities such as proper road communication, footpaths, streetlights, green belts and traffic control measures etc. They said even as this deprivation causes them enormous inconvenience to their day-to-day life, no one from the civic agency, developer, local MLA or MP heeds to their grievances.
To register their protest against the deteriorating basic services and facilities in the sector, the residents of Golf City, Panchsheel Pratishtha, Apex Athena, Max White House, Jewels of Noida, Wellington, Kingston, J M Aroma, Indosam, and Golf Avenue-1and Golf Avenue-2 marched on the road.

The march was led by socially active residents including Naveen Mishra, Mallikeshwar Jha, Dushyant Jha, Monika Shrivashtva, Vishnu Gupta, Varun Mittal, Varun Chandel, Kanhaiya Jha, Bhupendra Singh, Shubhanshu Jha, Pankaj Gupta and Sarvesh Kumar.
They complained that the plots were allotted to consortium of developers of the above high rises. The responsibility to develop roads, green belts and installation of lights also lies with them. But they are not paying heed to these issues despite voices being raised by the respective societies against this anomaly in the sector.
As many as eight thousand families have already moved into their homes in these societies, but they complain public facilities are not available to the sector.
They had even brought the issues to everyone’s notice and even followed up with them but in vain.
There is no control over the traffic movement as all kinds of violations of traffic rules are taking place every day on roads or at roundabout in the sector. So much so that commuters don’t feel safe anymore.
What’s more, there have been cases of frequent thefts in the area.
