|HC stays construction of residential projects in Noida|
|Express news service |
The Allahabad High Court today stayed the construction of multi-storey residential projects of nearly half-a-dozen private developers in sectors 75 and 120 of Noida, while hearing a petition alleging that the Noida Authority allotted land to private builders without formally acquiring it from the farmers.
The court has given two weeks time to the respondents to file their replies. The matter will come up for further hearing after three weeks. A division bench of Acting Chief Justice Amitava Lala and Justice PKS Baghel said that the allegations made in the petition raised a question of law as to whether any public authority had the power to allot land to a third party without first acquiring it from the land owner.
The petition filed by Kalu, a farmer of Sarsabad village, through counsels Shiv Kant Tripathi and Amrita Rai, said that on April 7, 2011, a notification under Section 4 (indicating the intention of the Authority concerned to acquire land) of the Land Acquisition Act for 120 hectares in Sectors 75 and 120, falling in Sarsabad village, was issued.
Nearly six lakh square metres of land, which is roughly half of the total area for which the notification was issued, was allotted to different builders between 2010 and 2012 without the acquisition process being complete, said the petition.
"Our contention is that 17 months after the notice under Section 4 was issued, the acquisition process has not moved forward. Under the norms, the notice under Section 6 (pertaining to finalising the plots to be acquired) of the Act should have been issued within a year. Also, our main objection is land could not be allotted to private builders before it was acquired from farmers," said Mishra. He added that all the private developers involved have begun construction on the allotted land.

Consultant appointed for NH-24 underpass Estimates & Design To Be Finalized In 2 Mths
Noida: The financial bid for construction of an underpass at the Model Town crossing on NH-24 was finalized on Friday. The underpass will be ready for use by January 2014. The consultant — DIMS — appointed by the Noida Authority has been given two months' time to submit the estimate, design and feasibility report of the project.
The project aims to streamline traffic movement from Noida to NH-24 via Sector 62 and towards Delhi and Ghaziabad. The technical bid was finalized a week ago on September 21. "Three companies had been shortlisted for the technical bid at a meeting on September 14. After detailed scrutiny, we have selected DIMS as the consultant. After conducting an intensive survey of the route and studying the density of vehicles, DIMS will submit a Detailed Project Report (DPR)," said AK Goel, chief maintenance engineer (civil).
"The consultant will present the estimate and the project design complete with loops within the next two months. The underpass will be constructed using the pushback technology so that traffic in the area is least affected," said Goel.
Once the underpass is completed, vehicles can avoid taking NH-24 to get to Indirapuram, Ghaziabad. Similarly, vehicles coming from Delhi can enter Noida via a loop easing the burden on the national highway. An application for an NOC has been sent to NHAI (National Highways Authority of India) and Ghaziabad Development Authority .
At present, the area faces massive traffic snarls, especially during peak hours. Noida Authority, Greater Noida Authority and Ghaziabad Development Authority are working together to make the entire NH-24 signal-free by constructing seven underpasses along the National Highway.
GDA on Friday said it would relocate the 50-odd farmer families who have their residential plots on the road alignment to land provided by GNA in Chipiyana village, Greater Noida, in the next 10 days. GNA had allotted 7.71 acres to GDA in July for rehabilitating the affected families.
The 130m wide signal-free road, when completed, will cut down travel time between Greater Noida and Ghaziabad to just 20 minutes. The road begins at the New Holland factory in Greater Noida and meets NH24 at the Vijay Nagar bypass in Ghaziabad. It will be extended later to the Meerut highway.
GNA Rama Raman told TOI that most of the 22km road is ready. However, work could not start on the 1.5km stretch as the abadi land of Bahrampur Akbarpur and Chak Birampur villages lay on it. While GNA managed to settle the issue with the villagers, GDA did not have land to relocate them.

Speaking to TOI, GDA vice-chairman Santosh Kumar Yadav confirmed that a team had found the builder illegally constructing two towers with 68 and 102 flats inside its already existing Amrapali Village housing complex in Indirapuram. "The team found Tower L with 17 floors, having 68 flats, and Tower K with 17 floors, having 102 flats being constructed illegally," Yadav said.
"In the layout plan submitted with the GDA, the construction had earmarked park and public utility in the designated spaces. However, on visiting the complex, our survey team found that there were two towers on the said location clearing violating the bylaws," Yadav said.
The real estate company chairman and , Anil Sharma, said that they will be making a fresh layout plan to be submitted before the GDA. The company is ready to pay the compounding fees to resume work on its housing project.
GDA officials said that the company had first released map on September 19, 2005 displaying an area of 32,000 sqm. But on July 23, 2010, the company changed the map after submitting compounding fees. The company reportedly is yet to submit Rs 6.50 crore as compounding fees.
The authority has been conducting a physical verification drive of buildings across the city. The maps submitted by the builders are being physically verified by several teams. The drive is being carried out in all eight zones of the authority from Zone 1 to 8.
