Extend construction deadline by two years, RWAs write to Uttar Pradesh CM – ET RealEstate

NOIDA: The Federation of Noida Residents’ Welfare Associations (FONRWA) has written to chief minister Yogi Adityanath requesting him to grant an extension of two years on the construction deadline of private plotted houses.

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.

Noida launches low-income housing scheme, but at a premium price point – ET RealEstate

NOIDA: In what appears to be a bizarre move at a time the real estate sector is struggling to recover from a prolonged slump, Noida has launched a scheme comprising 354 existing units, with base price at Rs 6,000 per sq ft. This is while thousands of ready flats are available in Noida within Rs 2,800 per sq ft.

After getting possession, buyers are also expected to pay at least Rs 3,600 per month as lease rent. Also, the price per square feet of flats launched for low-income group families is much higher than the ones available for middle and high-income groups.

“I had gone through the brochure and realised that LIG flats are priced at double the rates of MIG and HIG flats. I just do not understand the logic behind such price points,” said Dharmendra Singh, a resident of Sector 61 who had applied for the residential plot scheme November last year but backed out because of the high prices.

For instance, the smallest unit (590 sq ft) being offered is in Sector 71, at Rs 77.6 lakh. That translates into psf rate of more than Rs 13,150, explained Dharmendra. On the other hand, HIG unit available in the G+3 building in Sector 99 measures 1,653 sqft. It has been priced at Rs 1,34,33,425 which translates to Rs 8,100 for a sqft.

Officials said MIG, LIG and HIG units have been priced according to prevailing Authority rates. “Over the years, Noida Authority has launched dozens of G+ 3 storey and duplex flat schemes. The leftover inventory in 10 such buildings have been reintroduced. The scheme was thrown open for public on Wednesday,” said officer on special duty, Kumar Sanjay.

Chief executive officer of the authority, Ritu Maheshwari said that there was no scope to bring down prices from the ones that are on offer. “The scheme has been floated as per the prevailing rates of the sectors,” said Maheshwari.

Those interested in buying a property in the city feel that authority needs to bring prices down to be on a par with the prevailing rates or such schemes will continue to fail.

“Only industrial schemes have been able to generate good response while the remaining schemes have failed to take off. The rates have to be rationalised. But approval of board is required to do so. We will share the results of the recent residential, flat and commercial schemes before the board. Prices will be rationalised post that we are hoping,” said an officer, adding that the existing rates fixed by the authority can only be revised with the permission of the senior officials of the industries department and UP government.

Noida: Police complaint filed as part of ceiling in Hyde Park flat falls – ET RealEstate

Representative Image

GREATER NOIDA: A resident of Hyde Park in Sector 78 filed a complaint against the builder and the society’s maintenance agency after a portion of his ceiling fell down on Monday.

The complainant, Ajay Pandey, told the Sector 49 police that the incident happened at 12.40 pm when his five-year-old son was taking online classes.

“My son had a narrow escape as a chunk of cement fell on his laptop and on the sofa where he was sitting,” he said, adding that he had bought the 3BHK flat for Rs 70 Lakh in November 2018.

Apart from Pandey, other residents said this is the seventh such incident that has happened in the society in the recent past.

“Recently, a big portion of concrete had fallen on my car,” Pandey said, adding that similar incidents occurred in flat number 302 and 304 of the society.

The residents said they had informed the Noida Authority’s additional CEO about the matter but got no response. “We had written to the Noida Authority that the builder is trying to escape with bad quality construction and sought their intervention but got no response,” Pandey said.

He demanded the authorities should question the builder as to why the structures were collapsing in just four years. “We seek criminal investigation in the matter,” he said. The resident has been told to visit the magistrate in order to get an FIR registered since the matter is not criminal, said Sector 49 police station station house officer.

General manager (maintenance) of the society, KK Upadhyay, said only a small portion of the plaster of Paris had shredded from the ceiling. “We offered immediate repair but the resident denied help and called the police. The damaged ceiling is part of the construction work, which the resident himself had done in the apartment,” he said. The society has over 2,200 flats in 23 towers.
