Greater Noida: The Greater Noida authority has imposed a total fine of rupees 50,600 on two housing societies located in GreNo West for improper management of waste generated in the societies. Authority has also warned to double the penalty in case the fine is not paid in three working days.
On the instructions of DGM Salil Yadav, in-charge of Public Health Department of Greater Noida Authority, a team of officials from the authority including Dr. Umesh Chandra, Sanjeev Vidhuri, Mudit Tyagi and Indra Nagar inspected Galaxy North Avenue located in Greater Noida West on January 27, 2021. They found violation of the rules fixed for bulk waste generators in the society. Due to improper waste management, the team imposed a fine of Rs 40,400 on the builder of the society.
Saket, Vice President of Galaxy North Avenue says, "This hapened last year as well. The builder did not manage the waste properly and a fine was imposed. But the builder did not pay it. A team of officials again came for inspection and found that the situation with waste management was still the same and imposed another fine. This is not new here."
Similarly, Victory One Amyra Society, located in Sector 16 was also found wanting when it came to management of their garbage. The team has imposed a fine of rupees 10,200 there as well. A resident of Victory One, on the condition of anonymity says, "The society has a bulk waste management room in the basement. The bulk waste collection work is in the hands of a third party. However, due to the rain, the waste was not collected by them and now the fine is imposed on the builder. It has happened in our society for the first time."
Both the societies have been directed to deposit the fine amount within three working days. On failure of payment within the stipulated time, the authority has warned to issue RC and take necessary action as per the terms of the lease deed. Narendra Bhushan, CEO, Greater Noida Authority has appealed to all the bulk waste generators and residents of Greater Noida to cooperate in making Greater Noida more clean.
