Noida team inspects PAN Oasis on Day 2, residents say need results
NOIDA: Noida Authority officials inspected PAN Oasis housing society in Sector 70 on Tuesday and directed the developer to complete pending work in 30 days. The Tuesday visit was part of a drive – which started with a visit to Amrapali Sapphire on Monday – under which the Authority will inspect at least one housing society each day.
Some homebuyers, however, were sceptical of the exercise, which they said was eyewash. They said they had contacted the Authority on the issue many a time in the past but never got a reply.
According to officials, the team led by senior town planner A K Mishra spent about an hour at the society on Tuesday. “We had called the representatives of the society and a detailed inspection was carried out by the officials,” S C Gaur, chief architect planner, Noida Authority, told ETRealty (TOI). “The society has a total of 18 towers, four of which are occupied,” he said.
“We have given the builder a month to complete the pending work, including putting into place fire safety measures, lifts and other promised amenities,” he said.
Gaur told ETRealty (TOI) that the inspections would continue on a daily basis. “We will take up one or two societies every day. The societies under our scanner are mainly those nearing completion, and ones we have been receiving frequent complaints about,” he said.
“A report of each society is being submitted to Additional CEO P K Agarwal,” he said. “We also had a meeting with builders and CREDAI members asking them to ensure that deadlines are met, so that completion certificates can be issued to developers on time and residents can register their properties,” he said. “Non-compliance of orders will invite strict action against builders,” he said.
Meanwhile, some homebuyers of PAN Oasis were cynical about the move by the government agency. Sunil Chowdary, a resident, said, “The residents staying there have to suffer lack of basic amenities like CCTV cameras, fire safety measures, park, swimming pool, etc.”
“For the past six months, I have been trying to reach the Authority and the builder, but have not got a reply so far,” said Abhishek, who is yet to get his apartment and is living in rented accommodation in Sector 62.
However, Ashutosh, a resident of Amrapali Sapphire, saw promise in the drive. “Things will not change overnight, but we are hoping the developers are going to take cognisance,” he said.
