Residents of Gaur City 5th Avenue, a high-rise in Greater Noida West, have expressed great anger and annoyance over builder's decision to carry out excavation work in the vacant plot, located adjacent to the society and that too without their consent.

The boundary wall of the society has been destroyed in this process. People, who are already dealing with several maintenance issues, now fear for the safety and security of their family members.

Talking to City Spidey, one of the residents Gaurav Kumar said, “The plot has been dug 30-40 feet deep by deploying JCB machine. The PNG pipeline has burst during the excavation. Our cars are being parked there so it poses a big security threat for all of us. I cannot accept the fact that such work is taking place without management being aware of it.”

“Over 1000 families reside in society. Builder handed over the flats making genuine promises during possession but now, the situation has become worse as some or the other activities take place which puts things under suspicion,” Kumar added.

He concluded saying, “It is said that a hospital is going to be made for which the construction is taking place but is it legal? Do the laid norms allow such a thing to be constructed? I urge the officials concerned to take the matter into concern and initiate appropriate action to safeguard our lives and valuables.”

Another resident Manoj Singh said, “Officials from the gas pipeline company inspected the spot and they too feel that it can be risky for the residents. The digging work is being done for the past several days but neither the residents nor the management was able to stall it.”

“I am not sure if an FIR has been registered in this regard but firstly, the wall should be reconstructed and then legal action can be taken against the builder,” Singh demanded.

City Spidey tried to contact the developer to know their views on the matter but they were unavailable to comment.
