The residents of J-Block in Sector 63, Noida, are weary of the negligence of Noida Authority towards the upkeep of their area.
Roads are broken with craters and potholes; public park has turned into a dumping ground running the green belt around it while the construction material is seen lying in the open on the vacant plots.
A resident, Sunil, said, “Waterlogging is rampant in the area during rains. Construction debris can be found on the roads and vacant plots. Nobody from the authority comes to clear the area despite repeated complaints.”
“In fact, the vacant plots have been encroached upon by the rag pickers, who use the area as a dump yard. Because of this, a nauseating smell is always pervading across the neighborhood,” he added.
Another resident, Gyanendra, warned, “If our grievances are not redressed, it will lead to a far greater problem.”
The rainy season was particularly worst for the residents as the roads were washed away and the vacant plots were flooded. The situation is no different now.
“Waterlogging in monsoon was very severe as many buildings were constructed in the area during this period,” Sampathram, a 64-year-old resident of Chijarsi village told CitySpidey.
