GREATER NOIDA: Office bearers of more than three dozen residents’ welfare associations (RWA) reached GNIDA’s office in Knowledge Park IV to hand over a memorandum to the authority’s chief executive officer denouncing its move to hand over the maintenance work of residential sectors to them.
GNIDA wants to pass on at least three responsibilities to the RWAs gradually — registration of pet dogs, sterilisation of stray dogs and keeping vacant plots free of garbage and litter.
Residents said unless a clear cut policy or document to define financial an general liabilities is framed, they will continue to oppose the move.
CEO Narendra Bhooshan said, “A contract or memorandum of understanding will be signed between GNIDA and willing societies. We will hold talks with the resident groups before finalising the contract. Societies that are interested in taking up maintenance work, will be given a chance to do so. Otherwise, the present arrangement will continue.”
About 80 groups who stay in residential colonies or apartment complexes in Greater Noida have registered their associations with Uttar Pradesh registrar of firms, societies and chits. People staying in 15 to 20 sectors are yet to register their association.
