In order to collect its dues from developers, the Noida authority has decided to take action against those who have failed to pay their land dues. The authority also warned that it would cancel their land allotment if they fail to pay again.
The decision was taken during a review meeting, which was headed by the Authority Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Ritu Maheshwari on Tuesday. She also directed the head of the departments to monitor the reports on daily basis.
Maheshwari further directed the concerned officials to issue recovery notice to regular defaulters. In case the notices have not been received by the owners, the CEO asked officers to place them on their respective properties and release advertisements in newspapers to inform them.
“Our objective is to recover dues, which we can spend on other development works of the public interest. The head of the departments are directed to issue recovery notices to those who repeatedly fail to pay land dues. If they fail to pay again then the authority will cancel their allotment and take possession of their property,” Maheshwari, said in a directive issued to the department officials.
The directive revealed that the authority has to receive Rs 6,879 crore as land dues from the commercial department, Rs 561 crore from the industrial department, while Rs 575 crore as land dues from the institutional department. Maheshwari has directed the dead of the departments to recover the amount and has also asked the financial department to prepare a weekly progress report.
The CEO also directed the commercial, industrial and institutional departments to use digital platform for uploading all their property details. August 31 has been set as a deadline for filing property details online. Similarly, the officials in the group housing department have been asked to upload all their details online by September 31.
