हाइनिष सोसाइटी में मेंटेनेंस सेवाएं 17 अक्टूबर से बंद हैं।— Panchsheel Hynish Residents (@HynishResidents) October 20, 2021
ना ही सफाई हो रही है, और न ही बिजली रिचार्ज।
50लाख रुपया बिल्डर को देकर, अथॉरिटी को रजिस्ट्री का लाखों रुपया दे कर भी, बिजली कनेक्शन के नाम पर हज़ारों रुपये देकर भी, भाजपा को वोट दे कर भी सिर्फ प्रताड़ित होना पड़ रहा है। pic.twitter.com/GPXPxJnKbY
Residents alleged that the maintenance office is closed and the security guards and domestic helpers are protesting. According to them, builder has stopped providing the maintenance services. For the last two days, residents have not been not able to recharge their electricity bills.
Domestic helpers are on strike due to which, cleaning of the lobby is also not done. On October 21, residents also visited Greater Noida Authority. They shared that they also filed a complaint against the builder in Bisrakh Police station.
Residents alleged that last year, the builder hiked the maintenance charges from Rs 1.96 per sqft to Rs 2.16 per sqft without consulting residents. Seepage from the pillars is a daily affair. Plaster fallings in the flats and at reception is a major security issue in the society. Residents shared that buttons of the lift are dysfunctional, due to which residents are facing difficulties.
A resident on the condition of anonymity said, “The condition of the society has become pathetic day by day. Domestic helpers are on strike. The lobby and park are not cleaned. We also met with the officials of the Authority but no one has listened to us. We also filed a complaint in Bisrakh Police station about closing maintenance services but the response was the same.”
Vinod Negi, a resident from the society shared that, “The electricity meters in the society are prepaid and maintenance office is closed. We are not able to recharge our electricity bill. All the residents are facing problems. The lift has no power backup. Security Guards are on strike. If any accident happens, who will take the responsibility?”
CitySpidey also talk to the builder Anuj Chaudhary. He said, “Residents are not paying maintenance charges. The maintenance office is not closed, staff of the maintenance office do not want to work because we are not able to pay them. Domestic helpers and Security guards are on strike. If the residents do not pay the maintenance charges, how will I pay them and give the services to the residents? According to the residents, I have hiked the maintenance charges. According to UP RERA, the builder has the power to increase the 10% maintenance charges in a year.”
