The three-member cabinet committee constituted on the directions of Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath—to look into the issues faced by the three areas of Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway in Gautam Budh Nagar (GBN)—will hold meetings in the Greater Noida Authority offices today and tomorrow. With the builder-homebuyer standoff being top priority, the three minister committee consisting of Satish Mahana, Suresh Rana and Suresh Khanna will meet homebuyers and builders today between 3.30 and 5pm.
The committee is also supposed to meet officials from the three authorities and the GBN district administration on both days. A special slot has been reserved on August 30 for problems related to Ghaziabad district. The committee is scheduled to meet homebuyers and builders of Ghaziabad and find a solution to their problems besides meeting about civic amenities and traffic related problems of the area. Meetings are also fixed with legislators of the district. The committee will remain in the city from 9.30am to 1.30pm on Wednesday.
Thereafter, from 2pm to 8.30pm the committee will be present at the office of the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA). While meetings with homebuyers and builders will be held on August 30, Thursday August 31 will see marathon meetings with officials of the authorities of Noida, Greater Noida, Yamuna Expressway and the GBN district administration including senior police officials.
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 —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.
The most important item on the agenda of the committee is to find workable solutions to the ongoing builder-buyer logjam, which has been posing a serious challenge to the authorities in the three areas. Besides, the panel is also expected to look into areas of urban and rural transformation including road, water, sewage, health and waste management. Also, the panel will try to find immediate solutions to the ever increasing traffic problems being faced by citizens. The other issues, which will be under the group of minister's scanner, include access to medical and educational facilities and matters related to village panchayats.
