Noida: Unpruned trees have left the residents concerned for their safety in the Janpath Road service lane between sectors 110 and 108 near Lotus Panache in sector 110, Noida.
The residents said that the trees aren’t being pruned properly and because of that its branches have touched the high-voltage cable. As per them, it is an accurate recipe for casualties during the monsoon.
Pushkar Chandna, a resident of Lotus Panache, Sector 62, Noida, has been requesting the Noida Authority for pruning of tree branches since July 9.
On August 8, the Noida Authority took the concern and tweeted, “The concern has been addressed,” with a picture. But according to Pushkar, it was not done at the spot for which the complaint was given and it is still not done to date.

“I have been asking the authorities for months to prune the trees as it is very dangerous and may lead to fatal accidents during monsoons. Trees that grow too close to electric lines are a threat. They can cause power outages or momentary power interludes,” said Pushkar.
