Amrapali Silicon City: Basement gets inundated again after rain

Noida: The condition of the basement at Amrapali Silicon City, Sector 76, Noida, turned worse after rain on Thursday. There was water everywhere and residents faced a lot of difficulties. They shared that such kind of waterlogging happens often.

They shared a tweet, “It's the working output of Govt Navratna NBCC, see the situation in Silicon City, Sec 76. NBCC working here for 2  years @noida_authority @OfficialNBCC @narendramodi @city_spidey  @NEFOMAncr @vinodsharmanbt @anil100y @pankhuripathak.”

Deepak Kumar, a resident of the society said, “For the last two years, our society has been under the National Buildings Construction Corporation (NBCC). Within 30 minutes of rain, the rainwater was logged in the basement. Residents are unable to go in the parking lot. We have to take our shoes and socks in our hands and fold our pants to reach our vehicle. A major accident can happen if there is a naked wire. We were also facing the electricity issue for 18 hours.”

Another resident Anirudh shared, “I have been living here for the last six years. This year, in the monsoon season, the condition of the basement has become really bad. Workers of NBCC are not doing good work, according to them, Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) is under construction. There is seepage from the joints of the pipes and through the pillars of the basement which will affect the structure of the building.”

Animesh Chaudhary, a resident of Tower A said, “Our society is under the NBCC, but there is no improvement of work in the society. After 30 minutes of rain, the rain waterlogged in the basement. Residents are facing difficulties parking their vehicles. We are also facing an electricity issue. In the pandemic, most of the residents are doing work from home and the online classes are going on, due to which it is difficult to manage.”
