Residents protest against power issues at Supertech Ecovillage-1

Noida: The residents of Supertech Ecovillage-1, Greater Noida West, on Thursday protested against frequent power cuts and voltage fluctuations in the society for a long period of time.

Raising the issue, a resident Sameer Bharadwaj tweeted on Friday, “This happens every year when we need electricity the most ST fails to manage because of many reasons @Supertechltd shame on  you if u can’s manage basic then m sorry to say we wasted our hard earned money in your project. (sic)”

“Supertech Ecovillage-1 has nine thousand flats. The management charges exorbitant Rs 29,000 for increasing per KW of power load. For generators, they are charging Rs 21 per unit. The charges are very high but the residents are facing the same problem year after year. For the last 15 days, residents are facing this issue every night. We paid full facility charges but yet, the problems are same. Now, the residents are getting frustrated,” informed Anupam Misra, a resident of tower C4, Supertech Ecovillage 1.

“Since beginning, we haven't got many services. The biggest issue is inconsistent power supply and voltage fluctuations. This is happening despite the residents are paying arbitrary charges. I had to increase the power load by 3 KW. For that, I had to pay almost Rs 1 lakh,” said Nirmal Sharma, a resident of D6-405.

“At the time of occupancy, they said that the generator will be operated by CNG and it will not make any noise. However, diesel has been used for the generator and it makes noise. The society has only one transformer for the entire society,” Sharma added.

“The society does not have a good infrastructure. That is the situation despite us paying extra for the facilities. Two days later, the society's transformer stopped working due to heavy load. We kept calling the maintenance team but there was no response from them. We are continuously raising the issue in the last two years,” said Arvind Kumar, a resident of flat number D3-1004.

Vikas Kansal, Head of Supertech facility team said, “I assure that all the issues will be solved by our team within a week. The work is in progress and it will take some time.”
