The projects where construction was started include Smart City-Golf Homes, Kingswood, Leisure Park (Ph-1, Ph-2 and River view), Centurion Park- Terrace Homes and Tropical Garden, Leisure Valley- Adarsh Awas Yojna and Dream Valley- Enchante.

In addition of this, the tenders for projects Leisure valley- Varona Height and Dream valley Ph-2 are in process.

β€œOver 6000 work force has been deployed on these projects, which is likely to double in next 2 months. The progress of work was badly affected by COVID19 and following all protocols and precautions, the work is now progressing well to some extent,” said P K Gupta, CMD of NBCC.

The work on eight projects in Noida involving 11741 units in Silicon-1&2, Silicon-Crystal Homes, Sapphire I &II, Princely, Platinum/Titanium and Zodiac and three projects in Greater Noida- Centurian Park-Low rise and Valley, Leisure Valley Villa and Dream Valley Villas involving 2666 units are in progress.

NBCC said that they have started handing over flats to homebuyers and is likely to handover around 160 flats in the first week of September.

β€œAll these works are likely to be completed from 9 months to 36 months in all respect. The completion of projects is entirely depends upon timely deposit by homebuyers and arrangement of funds from other sources,” Gupta added.

Over 40,000 homebuyers of Amrapali will have to start paying the remaining amount from August, as per the latest payment schedule prepared by the state-run NBCC (India).

NBCC has divided the stuck Amrapali projects in three categories and delivery of flats will start within six months.

NBCC is involved in the completion of 23 housing projects by Amrapali Developers. The estimated cost of completion of all Amrapali projects is about Rs 8,500 crore.
