The Greater Noida Authority will now have a Twitter handle of its own.
The aim is to connect with flat buyers being harassed by builders. The decision comes hot on the heels of flat buyers in Noida tweeting Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Indian cricket captain and brand ambassador of the Amrapali Group, asking him to dissociate with the builder after their complaints against it. Dhoni finally stepped down as brand ambassador on Saturday. Even Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, also tagged in the Twitter messages, assured residents of action against the builder.
Deepak Agarwal, CEO of Greater Noida Authority, told City Spidey, “Social media has a lot of strength. If we get a Twitter handle of our own, we’ll be able to connect with so many residents. There are thousands of plots and house allottees in Greater Noida who could be facing problems in the city. Keeping this in mind, we have decided to create a Twitter handle of our own.”
Agarwal added that tweets to the handle would be monitored round the clock by Greater Noida Authority’s IT department. It would forward all complaints to the respective departments, so problems could be addressed quickly and more efficiently.
