Greater Noida: Residents of the Aishwaryam Society, a residential society in Gaur City 2, Greater Noida West, raised the issue of the bad state of the environment and recycling infrastructure in the society. They said that the garbage was dumped in the basement parking lot and there is no exhaust fan, which makes it difficult to stand there.
They shared that the society has no rainwater harvesting system in place and infrastructure, the same should be developed and tested for operability. Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) functioning should be audited and necessary work should be done to bring it up to the industry standard by implementing proper checks and balances in place along with maintenance for the future. Residents also raised the issue of Water Treatment Plant (WTP) and the Organic Waste Converter.
Residents shared that the water treatment plant needs to be rectified to implement water softeners along with proper auditing on the legal number of borewells in place and are functional with competent government authorities. They shared that the builder charges Rs 2.20 per sqft but the basic facilities and maintenance in the society is zero.
Arnimesh, AOA president of the society said, “Aishwaryam residents purchased the flats in the hopes of getting a premise which will have at least basic amenities with sound infrastructure and has paid and is paying heavy maintenance to the builder but there is no proper maintenance service provided by the builder."
He added, “There is no proper rain harvesting system, STP, WTP, and Organic Waste Converter. The drains are not covered. During the rainy season, the rainwater gets logged into the society which may cause the disease like dengue and malaria.”
Zuheab, a resident of Tower A shared, “Water is a key resource which is important for the well-being of the people who are consuming it. The water treatment plant needs to be rectified to implement water softeners along with proper auditing on the legal number of borewells in place and are functional with competent government authorities.
Pranav, a resident from Tower E shared, “The waste collected from different homes in the society are segregated using human touch in the basement of the tower in stinky and unhygienic conditions which can lead to a disease outbreak. The water treatment plant needs to be rectified.”
