Acting on complaints by residents about illegal construction that have come up around the main water tank of D block in Sector-50, Additional Chief Executive Officer of Noida Authority, Rajesh Prakash, has instructed his officials to initiate action immediately. He also warned officers that stringent action will be taken against them if they do not raze the illegal structures within a week
Prakash has also questioned his officials as to why permission had been given to occupy government land and why the illegal structures had not been removed despite several complaints received from RWA.
In fact, RWA of Sector 50 had lodged a complaint with the Noida Authority regarding this almost three months ago. They had also been following up the issue with reminders to the Noida Authority, but no action was taken.
The matter was then reported to the Additional Chief Executive Officer of Noida Authority by the Treasurer of Sector 50 RWA, GP Saxena. “Despite clear-cut rules that forbid construction of houses below or around water tank, employees of Noida Authority have constructed more than ten small houses in the area,” Saxena said.
