The residents of a high-rise society, Paramount Floraville, are having a harrowing time as most of the lifts are not working for the last 5 days. The society is located in Sector 137 in Noida.
Senior citizens, children and women are forced to use stairs for going up and down in the buildings. The maintenance team has not done anything so far.
A resident of the society, Ankur Arora said that they will now take the matter to the Uttar Pradesh chief minister and the district magistrate.
"Some lifts are functional in some tower of the society but people are getting stuck into that lifts. Today, a resident along with his son was stuck in between 18 and 19 floors in the morning. After 20 minutes, they were rescued by the security staff," Arora said.
On Thursday, the only working lift in Gloxinia Tower and crashed from 7th to 4th floor. Kids, who were inside the lift, got panicked. They were rescued after 10 minutes.
Residents are planning to file a police complaint against the developer.
An official in the maintenance department of the society said that some parts of the lift are not working and they have ordered for it.
He said that the lift problem will be resolved as soon they will get the parts.
There are more than 2,000 high-rises in Noida, Greater Noida and Ghaziabad. The residents are demanding a lift act which will ensure proper installation, operation and maintenance of lifts in buildings.
