Homebuyers are keeping their fingers crossed for the week ahead as decisions taken now would determine the future of their housing units in Noida Extension. Even as the Greater Noida Authority has claimed that it has convinced hundreds of farmers not to move the Supreme Court, several others are ready to file petitions in the apex court this week. The Authority also has a meeting scheduled with the NCR Planning Board this week that would conclude whether buildings would be constructed in Greater Noida.
“It’s a crucial week for us. The future of our dream houses would be shaped by various developments talking on different fronts this week,” said secretary of Noida Extension Flat Buyers’ Welfare Association (NEFBWA), G L Sagar. “We hope that the sanctity of the Allahabad High Court verdict is upheld and we get ownership of our houses in time,” added Sagar.
Last week, the Authority convinced farmers from Noida Extension to refrain from moving the apex court by promising settlement of abadi-related issues and various developmental works to be undertaken in villages. Teams of officials, along with BSP leaders, are visiting each village in their bid to convince farmers.
“On Sunday, the abadi disputes in Bisrakh and Junpath villages were settled. We are also making good progress in our discussions with Roja Yakubpur and Aimnabad villages,” said Gautam Buddh Nagar MP, Surendra Nagar. “In most villages, 90 per cent of farmers are happy with the high court’s decision and are willing to settle,” added Nagar.
From Tuesday, the Authority would begin disbursal of compensation. “This time we will set up camps in each village and farmers need not flock the Authority office for getting compensation,” said Nagar.
The Authority also needs to cross the crucial hurdle of ratification of its Master Plan 2021 by the NCR Planning Board. The high court had ordered the Authority and allottees not to carry on development work till observations and directions of the Board are incorporated in the Master Plan. [TOI]
