Finally, the residents of Prateek Wisteria, a high-rise in Noida Sector 76, have a reason to celebrate. The maintenance of the society will now be handled by its Apartment Owners Association (AOA) as the developer—Prateek Group has finally accepted the 1800 flat owners’ long-standing demand.
The AOA started its first day in the office with good news for the residents as it decided to wave off two-months (February and March) maintenance charges. The members of the AOA said that right now they can afford the move as they have funds from the maintenance charges collected earlier.
Nisha Rai, secretary of AOA, said, “The developer has handed over the maintenance of the society to AOA and now it’s our responsibility to provide better services to the residents. The decision to wave off two months’ charges has been taken after analyzing the funds available with us.”
Listing out their key responsibility areas, the AOA members said that providing better facility at the two club houses and gyms, and overhauling the security on the premises are right at the top.
“We will work towards increasing the number of CCTV cameras and implement waste segregation system within two weeks. AOA would be fully operational from April 1 after the developer transfers all records and funds,” Rai added.
While most of the residents cheered AOA’s wave off offer, a section alleged that the association has not followed the guidelines prescribed under the UP Apartment Act.
Replying to this, Rai said, “This is absolutely wrong. Our AOA has been formed according to the UP Apartment Act and the Noida Authority is fully aware of this new development.”
