Greater Noida: The homebuyers of Supertech Ecovillage 1, 2, and 3 have decided to boycott the upcoming assembly election of Uttar Pradesh and started a 'No registry, No vote' campaign. Taking their election boycott threat to the streets the residents protested at the Gaur City roundabout on December 5, 2021, against the builder and the Greater Noida Authority.
Residents shared that even after four and a half years of wait, their flats have not been registered and Greater Noida Authority is not helping them. About 200 residents took part in the protest and formed a human chain at the Gaur City roundabout. They pointed out that due to the non-registration of their flats, they have to pay extra interest on their loans to the banks. The residents also alleged that the builder has not paid his dues to the Greater Noida Authority and the Authority is still not taking any action against him. As per residents, they made sure that the commuters are not hassled because of their protest.
In this regard, Shweta Bharti, General Secretary NEFOWA says, “The main reason which the Noida Authority gives for not registering our flat is the fact that our builder has not yet cleared his due switch the Noida Authority. why should the flat buyer have to bear the brunt because of this authority-builder conflict? Now we are left with no other option but to carry our protest to the street and not vote in the coming up assembly elections.”
This Supertech Ecovillage project started in 2010-11. As of now, approximately 15,000 buyers have not received the registry of their residential flats. Several residents did not even get the requisite Occupancy Certificate and Completion Certificate (OC/CC) before they moved into their residential flats.
Sameer Bharadwaj(42), resident of Ecovillage-1 says, "Authority and the Government are answerable for the pending registry. If the registry will not start, the campaign ‘No registry, No vote’ will go on. We live in a democratic country. If even after such a long time our basic demands are not being met then what is the point of us voting in the commit-up elections. We are left with no other choice but to use our democratic right to not cast our vote.”
Mihir Gautam(40), a resident of Ecovillage 2 says, “The protest will be going on every weekend with the campaign No Vote, No registry. It’s been more than four years and I am still not the owner of my own house. The registry is still pending. Homebuyers from Panchseel, La residencia, and Casagreen also took part in the protest to lend their support to our cause.”
Mritunjay(39), a resident of Ecovillage 3 says, “All the residents are requesting the government to take action on the pending registry. The authority only gives us assurances but nothing moves. Not only Supertech Ecovillage residents, homebuyers from other societies in Greater Noida West are also supporting us in the No Registry, No Vote campaign.”
Anupam Mishra(36), a resident of Ecovillage 2 society says, "All the residents are worried due to the pending registry and late possession of their flats. In early 2020, NEFOWA President met with the Chief Minister of UP. However, no action was taken against the builder.”
