Inquiry was launched against officials who issued OCs without checking STPs at the societies.
The Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) initiated an inquiry against officials who had given occupancy certificates (OCs) to high rises without ascertaining whether the mandatory sewage treatment plant (STP) was installed or not.
After taking cognizance of the matter raised during recent sewage management and segregation checking drives conducted by the authority officials, Chief Executive Officer, GNIDA, Narendra Bhooshan, had ordered for random checking of the STPs at societies.
He also instituted an inquiry against officials who issued OCs without checking whether STPs were installed at the societies and were functional.
As per an official source, Greater Noida has 197 builder projects, of which, 45 have been given OCs.
A fact-finding team from the department has found that STPs at many of the projects were not functional . They also found that STPs were not even installed at many others.
Recently, under the “Swachhta Hi Seva” initiative, the GNIDA officials had conducted raids at more than hundred societies and fined the violators for mismanagement of bulk waste.
