NEFOWA came to know some hidden facts that all the builders of Greater Noida West are approaching Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) for the approval of new FAR. As we got some information during our visit to GNIDA office, 17 builders already have got map approval with new FAR 3.5.
Builders require NOC from 100 percent buyers who booked their flats in the project for any change in map or layout plan whereas builders have spread the rumour that NOC from only 51 percent flat buyers are required. We also came to know that if any flat buyer does not sign NOC, builders will show that unit unsold in their records (which they will submit to GNIDA for map approval).
Also, despite several letters written by NEFOWA to GNIDA regarding quality checks of Greater Noida West housing projects, the rampant construction at different project sites of Greater Noida West are being allowed by the authority without checking.
The government and the authority should learn lessons from recent tragedies , which took place in Chennai, Goa, Mumbai and many more places. Hence, inspection must be carried out for all constructions under progress and review the safety of buildings as well.
