Residents say rise in population, and absence of public parks and community centre in the sector has become a concern.
Residents of several residential societies in Sector 76, Noida, have been demanding elementary facilities such as a public park and a community centre in the sector from Noida Authority for the last three years.
They say about five thousand residents have moved in the sector owing to the tremendous growth of residential complexes. But the basic facilities provided in the sector has not increased proportionately and residents are forced to go to nearby sectors for availing some of those facilities.
Some of these societies are Skytech Matrott, JM Orchid, Aditya Celebrity Homes, Amrapali Princely Estate, Amrapali Silicon City and Sethi Max Royal.
Sandeep Agarwal, a resident of Amrapali Silicon City, told City Spidey, “Residents, especially children and the elderly, don’t have enough space for morning walks or for playing. The society’s parks are small in size. We have to go to Meghdutam Park in Sector 50 for jogging. The Authority should do the needful to solve these problems.”
Sachin Goyal, a resident of JM Orchid, said, “We face a lot of trouble whenever there is a private function. Those residents who do not have a community centre or a club house in their societies are the most hassled. They have to book club houses in other societies and the builders charge them heavily.”
Goyal added that he had taken up the issues with the Authority but his complaints fell on deaf ears.
When City Spidey spoke to MC Tyagi, project engineer, Noida Authority, and under whose jurisdiction the area falls, he said, “I am not aware of any proposal for development of these facilities. But I will look into the matter and find out if development of any facilities in the sector is pending.”
He added that the sector has been allotted to group housing projects of different builders and therefore he does not have information of pending projects.
