Seepage is a perennial issue, say VictoryOne Central residents

Greater Noida: The residents of VictoryOne Central, a residential society in Sector 12, Greater Noida West are facing problems due to water seepage in basements and flats of the residents. The residents alleged that they don’t have a water harvesting system in the society.

They said that throughout the year water keeps flowing from the ceiling and walls of the basement. They said that the problem is persistent and because of which walls have also developed cracks.  Over 200 residents reside in this society. They feel insecure because of the seepage as it is affecting the base of residential towers.

“We don't have infrastructure for rain water harvesting which is a mandatory part of OC. In rains, water gets clogged everywhere and seeped into pillars. It can weaken the primary structure. We are investing our money to correct the seepage issue in our flats which should be done by the builder,” said Amrit Choudhary, a resident of VictoryOne Central.

Water seeping through walls in VictoryOne Society

“Our builder gave us possession in 2018 and received OC from GNIDA for 4 towers, out of the total of 11 towers, but rain water harvesting, which is a part of OC, was never implemented. Moreover, there is seepage everywhere and water clogging problems can be seen in the basement of the society which could be dangerous,” said Prashant Chauhan, a resident of VictoryOne Central.

“At various places, cement has corroded and there's a risk of chunks of concrete falling off and damaging parked vehicles. We have spent our hard-earned to set up our homes here, but the seepage has reached disturbing fractions,” said Vinod Soni.

The residents have raised this issue many times to authorities but nothing positive has come out of it as yet.
