The residents alleged that the developer of Noida society has started blackmailing them by disrupting essential community facilities.
Residents of Supertech Capetown, a high rise residential society in Sector 74, Noida, met with local MP, Dr. Mahesh Sharma, on Tuesday over lack of basic facilities in the society. They complained that it is causing problems for them.
The residents claimed that despite an order from the then Additional Chief Executive Officer of Noida Authority, Indra Vikram Singh, the developer failed to provide facilities to the society as per the approved building plan.
Office bearers of Apartment Owners Association (AOA), Supertech Capetown, shared their grievance with Ritu Maheshwari, Chief Executive Officer of Noida Authority through email on the previous day. They requested her to look into the matter.
The residents in their complaint to the CEO said that the developer is not following the directions given to him for increasing capacity of water supply connections, electricity connections, improving the condition of basements, removing encroachments from community centers and open parking conditions.
The residents alleged that the developer has started blackmailing them by disrupting essential community facilities like milk booth, creches, etc. They claimed that the developer has asked them to give their consent for developing these facilities in community centers.
They also informed Maheshwari that the authority issued occupancy certificates for approximately 4,400 flats in 37 different residential towers. But 16,000 to 20,000 residents are staying in the society and have to adjust with the essential services which are not enough for all. They urged her to ensure that all the community facilities are in place as per the plan.
Krishna Sharma, secretary of the association, said that as per the sanctioned layout of the society, there should be two milk booths and creches. But these facilities are currently missing. The developer should be directed for developing a space in the society for these facilities.
He complained that instead of removing the illegal encroachment in community centers, the developer is allegedly disconnecting essential services like the electricity to the residents.
Sharma said that they would also meet local MLA, Pankaj Singh, regarding the issues faced by them.
