Residents of Antriksh Forest Apartments in Sector 77, Noida, feel cheated. They were promised a 24-m-wide approach road leading to its front gate, but all they have is a dirt road.

The society is still in its development phase and comprises 632 flats in 13 towers.  

Manoj Gaur, a resident of the apartment complex, told City Spidey that while booking a flat, he was shown a brochure that clearly had a 24-m approach road marked. This road, however, was never constructed. Gaur has been questioning the builder about the road since he moved in last October.  

The builder, Rakesh Yadav, has his own version of the story. He claims that the master plan of Noida Authority shows a 24-m road leading to the society. He said that the development of a sector is the Authority's responsibility and it should have constructed the road by now. Yadav said he has met the CEO of Noida Authority, Rama Raman, twice already, and written to him four times about the issue, but there has been no action on the front at all.

Additional CEO of Noida Authority, Rajesh Prakash, when contacted by City Spidey, said that he was too busy to discuss the issue and abruptly ended the conversation by saying that the matter was under consideration. He did not comment on when the road would be constructed.

Another flat owner, Sanjay Sawhney, is not amused with the Authority's attitude. He said that it is ludicrous that it could allot a plot to the builder and allow construction on it without even planning a proper approach road to the society.

There are some other issues too, which are leaving the flat owners disgruntled. Sawhney says that according to the agreement between the builder and the flat owners in 2010, the society was to be completed and handed over to residents by the end of 2012, with allowance for a maximum of six months' delay.  He said that it has been three years since and of the 13 towers, only four have been completed — that too after being pressured by the apartment owners. The society is still in no shape to get a completion certificate.
