RWAs running 25 isolation centres in Noida sectors – ET RealEstate

NOIDA: The RWA federation, in collaboration with Noida Authority, is operating about 25 isolation centres for Covid-19 patients at community centres across various residential sectors.

Chief minister Yogi Adityanath inspected one such centre at the Sector 45 community centre on Sunday. During his visit, the federation urged the CM for vaccination camps in residential sectors.

The centres are equipped with oxygen cylinders, medicines used for Covid treatment, paramedic staff and doctors who are either attached to neighbouring hospitals or are residents, the federation said. “Some of these L1 isolation centres are operating in sectors 12, 19, 34, 48, 49, 50, 82, 93, 100, 119 and 122, as well as Century Apartments and Udyog Vihar, among others. They are of varying capacities ranging from two to 20 beds. We are getting the support of the Noida Authority in refilling of oxygen cylinders at Rs 500 per cylinder,” said Yogendra Sharma, president of the Federation of Noida Residents Welfare Associations (FONRWA).

According to KK Jain, the secretary-general of FONRWA, member RWAs and social organisations have pooled in resources and started these facilities to benefit residents seeking medical assistance in home isolation.

“We have seen painful times in the last 15 days, during which we and many others have lost loved ones. Our member RWAs have done very important work by arranging food, oxygen cylinders, medicines, paramedics as well as doctors at these isolation centres. It’s the local RWAs who have stepped in at times of dire need for residents,” Jain said.

The FONRWA president urged the CM to arrange for vaccination camps to be held in residential sectors so as to reach more residents, especially the elderly and those with comorbidities, as many haven’t been able to get slots for inoculation through the Co-WIN portal. “The CM has assured us of action as the matter is still under consideration. We are in talks with the chief medical officer and hope to find a solution to this soon, as drive-through vaccination drives are not feasible for the elderly and those with comorbid conditions,” Sharma said.

Meanwhile, social organisations such as Challengers Group, a youth body, are providing medicines, oxygen concentrators and ambulance services to residents in villages as well as the economically weaker sections of society in urban areas. “We are trying our best, but it is like a drop in the ocean given the situation in villages, where testing and medical facilities are negligible,” said Prince Sharma, president of the group.

Mahagun Moderne’s voluntary covid centre runs into a bureaucratic wall – ET RealEstate

NOIDA: A Covid care facility with oxygen support that was to come up at Mahagun Moderne housing society in Sector 78 has run into a bureaucratic wall.

The backdrop is an order issued by city magistrate Umashankar Singh to the Noida Authority to take charge of the project, which was initially a voluntary exercise by Mahagun’s Apartment Owners’ Association (AOA) to cater to the 10,000-plus residents of the society as well as those living in the nearby 7X sectors.

Singh’s department even pasted a notice of the order on the walls of the society’s playschool on Wednesday. “We have directed that the facility will be run by the Noida Authority and no one else,” Singh said.

However, Noida CEO Ritu Maheshwari on Thursday told TOI, “The Authority is not a health department that it can run or be ordered by the city magistrate to run hospitals. The project will have to be executed by the AOA.”

Stuck in the middle is the AOA of the housing society, which has pooled in resources to set up the Covid facility, including 50 beds, an oxygen plant and a compressor, and also empanelled a list of doctors.

Adding to the problems is the builder’s refusal to allow the AOA to run the facility at the playschool on the society premises.

The builder has already issued a press release, saying they have handed over the playschool to the Noida Authority.

“We have handed over the facility to the Noida Authority because they are facing some shortage of beds and we will let them operate till June 30, after which we want to take the facility back,” said Amit Jain, director of Mahagun Developers.

The school has been shut since the lockdown first began in 2020.

Sandeep Chauhan, Mahagun’s AOA president, said, “We had first approached the Noida Authority to support us for this project, but they didn’t agree. We next wrote to the builder but got no response. To date, 17 residents have lost their lives to Covid-19. This is a shameful act in these times of crisis.”

Consortium of nine builders submits sports city plan to Noida authority – ET RealEstate

NOIDA: A group of nine developers, which has been unable to execute tripartite sub-lease deeds of their group housing projects in Sector 79, on Tuesday submitted its proposal to the Noida Authority for developing amenities in the Sports City.

These developers established Sports City Development Private Limited, a consortium, last month after holding several rounds of meetings with senior Authority officials.

TOI has learnt that the consortium has offered to develop a golf course, a cricket stadium, playfields, a swimming centre and tennis courts in the sector. They will pool in money as per the proportion of their plots and the layout of the Sports City that was finalised by the Authority in 2011.

In October 2011, the Authority handed over about 180 acres in Sector 79 to the now beleaguered 3C group. Sports amenities worth Rs 410 crore had to be developed and 70% of the land was to be left open to develop sports facilities.

3C sub-leased the plot to developers over the years, who established about a dozen projects with an inventory of 11,000 units. Among them, 5,500 are complete or at various stages of construction. But the Authority has refused to issue completion certificates as the sports facilities have remained undeveloped.

“We submitted our proposal to the CEO of Noida Authority on Tuesday. A meeting with senior officials has been scheduled later this week for further discussion,” said Subodh Goel, MD of the Civitech group, who’s leading the negotiations.

The consortium has not mentioned the budget. “The Authority will decide how many facilities are needed out of the ones proposed originally and their sizes. What standards are to be provided to users can be decided by experts and only then we can get the estimated cost,” he added.

Authority CEO Ritu Maheshwari said “the proposal is being reviewed” by the team concerned.
