With the instances of building collapsing this rainy season in the Shahberi village and Dasna area of Ghaziabad, the municipal authorities of the surrounding areas appear to be serious about prevention of any more of such unfortunate instances.
The Noida Authority on Friday issued a list of 1,757 illegal structures in different parts of the city and also demolished 10 such buildings. A survey has found that while 56 structures are in a dilapidated condition, 114 structures have come up on notified land, 261 buildings are on acquired land, and there are 1,326 unauthorised buildings in different villages. The officials are continuing the survey to identify and initiate action against more such unauthorised structures.
R K Mishra, additional CEO, Noida Authority, said teams conducted a survey in villages like Ilabas, Nangla Charandas, Gadhi etc. and served notices to the owners of unauthorised properties. “We have served notices to 12 persons in Gadhi village. They have been told to remove the structures within a week. Ten unauthorised structures were demolished in Gadhi village. One building in Mamoora village was evacuated after it was found unsafe,” he said.
The Noida Authority said they would soon form a committee to examine the dilapidated structures and take necessary action. The Noida Authority has also filed an FIR against 17 persons for unauthorised structures in Nithari village.
The Noida Authority said that some people had developed buildings on free-hold properties in villages, and also on notified and acquired land without getting plans approved. The Noida Authority officials said these structures are unauthorised and not as per the Noida (Fourth Amendment) Manual 2016 that lays down guidelines for the construction work on free-hold properties.
