The picture above is that of an 'abandoned' car parked on the main road of Sector 93A opposite Parsvnath Prestige, an upscale residential society in Noida's Sector-93A.
It has been parked there for more than two years now.
The car, a grey coloured Matiz from Daewoo Motors, bears the registration number UP-70-T-0443. Supposed to be owned by one Chandra Sen, and registered in Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh, now even the registration has expired.
Saying it poses a security threat, residents took up the matter with Noida officials like the District Magistrate, Senior Superintendent of Police and Deputy CEO of Noida Authority in 2014. But even these bigwigs seem to have failed to remove it or trace its owner.
The car, as good as junk now, "is improperly parked covering a sizable portion of the road" according to Nikhat Tyagi, a resident of ATS Greens Village, Sector-93A.
Rajnish Nandan, President of RWA, Parsvnath Prestige, officially declares that the car does not belong to residents of his society, Parsvnath Prestige. He comes to this conclusion after getting no response to the notice he had put up on the notice board from anyone.
The unclaimed car will be removed from there within the next 24 hours, says Yogesh Malik, sub-inspector with Sector-93 Police Post, Noida. But that is only if residents and the RWA come forward to lodge a complaint first.
