The deadline set by the state government was July 31, 2021, and now the federation has asked for it to be extended to July 31, 2023.
The residents’ body has cited job loss and unavailability of adequate labourers as the reasons for seeking the extension.
“Construction activities for government as well as private housing projects were stopped during the lockdown. Several workers had gone back to their hometowns/villages and that brought everything to a standstill,” Yogendra Sharma, the president, FONRWA.
He added, “We are getting requests from residents of various sectors in Noida seeking an extension for the completion of projects on plots allotted by the Noida Authority. Hence we have written to the chief minister requesting for an extension till July 31, 2020.”
The federation has said that is it not possible to construct the houses within such a short time period now.
“The pandemic has affected us in a big way, especially the lockdowns, which have brought social and economic lives to a standstill. Thus, we have requested the CM to kindly provide some to those owners of plots who wish to construct their houses by extending the deadline,” said KK Jain, secretary general, FONRWA.
