Members of the AOA Federation Ghaziabad met Vijay Kumar Yadav, vice-chairman of Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA), today to discuss a range of issues, including construction of a short-distance road from NH 24 to Crossings Republik, disposal of drainage waste from societies on the highway, such as Mahagunpuram, Manu Shree, Land Craft and Ashiana, and the much-debated amendments in the UP Apartment Act, 2010.
Yadav told the members that the initial planning of roads in the area had certain issues. He added that the High Court had stayed the construction of the road from NH 24 to Crossings Republik.
On the subject of drainage and waste management, Yadav said a private consultant firm had been appointed to look into the issue, but an immediate solution is yet to be decided upon.
Mukesh Agarwal, secretary of the federation, requested Yadav for a joint meeting to sort out the controversies in the UP Apartment Act, 2016. The vice-chairman assured the members of a joint meeting this month.
Members of the federation also requested DP Singh, OSD, GDA, to issue a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) on the taking over of residential societies from builders. However, Singh declined the request, saying it lay outside his jurisdiction.
The federation also decided to write to the Uttar Pradesh governor about the amendments to the UP Apartment Act, 2010, which, they added, would be detrimental to the interests of homebuyers.
