To cater to the needs of the rapidly developing residential societies in Greater Noida, the Greater Noida Authority has planned to establish two markets in the city.
There are no organised fruit, flower and vegetable markets in Greater Noida at present.
Deepak Agarwal, CEO of Greater Noida Authority, said, “We have ordered the planning department to earmark land for the markets. Construction will begin once the land has been identified.”
“The city is developing at a terrific pace and so are the needs of the residents. Fresh fruits and vegetables are the prime necessities of any household. Residents now have to buy goods from sellers who import them from neighbouring cities at higher rates,” he said.
The CEO said that the civic body had proposals to construct one market in Greater Noida and the other in Greater Noida West. Both areas urgently need markets, as the nearest ones are in Delhi and Dadri.
“The markets will also benefit farmers from neighbouring villages and districts. They will be able to sell their goods directly to wholesale or retail buyers, and do away with middlemen,” he added.
The connectivity between Greater Noida and other districts of Uttar Pradesh via Yamuna Expressway will ensure ease of access to these markets.
