Noida: Many highrise societies to be penalised for operating without STPs

Noida: The Noida Authority on Sunday said in a statement that several highrise societies lack sewage treatment plants (STPs) and there will be an action against them. 

The authority also said that there are many societies which are not following the guidelines of the National Green Tribunal while operating the STPs.

The officials released the names of 33 such societies which are flouting the STP guidelines.

Most of these 33 societies are located in Sector 7x area and Sector 137 in Noida.

The officials said that they will be penalising the builders and the Apartment Owners Associations (AOAs) for flouting the guidelines.

“During the inspection, it was found that maximum societies have not even constructed sewage treatment plants (STPs). Skytech Matrott, Amrapali Silicon in Sector 76, Assotech Windsor Court, Sikka Karmic and Aditya Urban Casa in Sector 78 are major among them,” the authority said in a statement.

“Some societies that have STPs were found to be functional but not in accordance with the NGT guidelines. Major among such societies are Supertech Capetown, Antriksh Golfview – II, Sunshine Heights, AIMS Max Gardenia, GH – 08 in Sector 75, Max Valis, Paras Tierra Sector 137, Blossom County, Ajnara Home in Sector 137, and Antriksh Forrest,” it stated.

The action will be taken against the builders and the AOAs under the Water Conservation Act, 1976.
