Disgruntled residents staged a protest against the builder, saying they were still struggling with issues such as security, electricity load and poor-quality water.
Residents of Gaur City 2 in Noida Extension staged a protest against the builder for failing to provide basic facilities. The protest took place inside the society compound on April 2.
The sprawling society is still under construction and will have more than 2,000 flats when complete. About 500 families have already shifted in over the past eight months.
Residents said they were still struggling with basic facilities such as security, electricity load and poor-quality water. They added that whenever they tried discussing the matter with the builder's officials, all they got were rude replies.
Neeraj Kumar, a resident, said they were forced to drink hard water, as the society was yet to receive its own Ganga jal supply. “The water being supplied to us is not potable and can cause serious health issues,” he said.
Kumar also brought up the issue of inflated maintenance charges. "Residents are paying monthly maintenance charges of Rs 2 per sq ft, whereas it should not be more than Rs 1.25 per sq ft. Despite paying such exorbitant charges, we are receiving third-grade service by the builder," he added.
When City Spidey contacted Arun Sharma, the facility manager of the society, he refused to comment on the topic.
