Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath has formed a three-member cabinet committee to look into the various issues faced by the three areas of Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway in Gautam Budh Nagar.
The committee — comprising industrial development minister Satish Mahana; sugarcane development and sugar mills, industrial development (MoS) (independent charge) Suresh Rana; and minister for legislative affairs, urban development and Sahari Samagra Vikas Suresh Khanna — would be visiting the areas on August 30 and 31, said Alok Sinha, principal secretary (industries).
Writing to the officials of the district, Chief secretary Rajiv Kumar outlined the agenda of the panel is to look into the builder-buyer impasse, the manner municipal bodies are operating and traffic problems in the three areas. The committee is expected to submit a report to the chief minister within a week, which will be put up before the state cabinet for further action.
Finding workable solutions to the ongoing builder-buyer stalemate, which has been posing a serious challenge to the authorities in the three areas, should in all probability be the top the priority of the committee, headed by Khanna.
Besides, the panel has been tasked to look into five areas of urban and rural transformation — road, water, sewage, health and waste management. Also, the panel will try to find immediate solutions to the increasing traffic problems being faced by citizens. The other issues, which will be under the GoM’s scanner, include access to medical and educational facilities and matters related to village panchayats.
Even though a final programme schedule is yet to be received by GB Nagar district officials, the committee is expected to meet officials of the three authorities, district administration and other stakeholders during its two-day visit. They would camp in the areas to understand the issues better and suggest solutions. The committee will be provided secretarial support by Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority’s CEO Debashish Panda.
