Greater Noida West: On November 20, 2021, the residents of Amaatra Homes, Sector10, Greater Noida West protested against the builder over the lack of basic amenities and security issues. The Noida Estate Flat Owners Main Association (NEFOMA) led the protest.
The residents took out their protest march within the society. Other than the men, the women and children also participated with posters in their hands, raising slogans against the builder and its maintenance team. After the protest, residents filed a complaint against the builder to DCP Harish Chander.
Residents shared that they have been facing problems for the last six months. The project started in the year 2014. Society has 935 flats, in which approximately 450 families live. Residents shared that there is no air conditioner in the clubhouse. Seepage through the pillars of the basement is a common occurrence. The kids play area is not maintained well. The gate of the rooftop, electricity shaft and lift remain open, which is a threat for children.
Anoop Kumar, a resident of Amaatra Homes says, “The builder is not providing the facilities in the society which were promised by him when we bought the flats. The basement gets flooded in the rain, CCTVs do not work properly and the common lobbies have not been built properly. There is no mat in the kid’s playing area. The kids are forced to play on hard surface and get hurt quite often.”
“We were protesting peacefully but the builder took out his security, housekeeping staff and left the society orphaned which has caused a lot of trouble to the residents. Whereas we all pay the highest maintenance charge of Rs 2.60 per square feet but we do not get even half of the facilities,” he added.
Another resident, Harshit Koya says, “The residents have many concerns when it comes to even basic facilities. The lift shaft has not been covered by the builder, due to which there is a possibility of children falling. The arrangement of light is not complete as a result there is darkness inside and outside the society at night.”
Annu Khan, NEFOMA President says, “The residents are being harassed by the builder of Amaatra Homes. When the residents meet the builder, the builder says that now the company is being managed by his son. The builder has formed his own maintenance company and the maintenance manager threatens the residents. We have complained against him to DCP Harish Chander.”
CitySpidey tried to contact the builder of the Amaatra Homes but could not get his comment on the issues raised by the residents.
