NBCC had started construction of over 16,000 flats of Amrapali in the last week of August while 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.
Residents of Sapphire I, where over 90% of the flats are occupied, met the NBCC CMD on Thursday to complain about the safety issues while executing the work.
“We are not bothered about the how building will look but concerned about the safety issue. Primary concern is fire safety measure and seepage, which is making the structure weak,” said Preeti Kaushal, treasurer of the society.
Residents highlighted the poor workmanship of the contractor, lack of proper monitoring, safety and ecurity norms followed by NBCC contractor. The residents also highlighted need for an urgent rectification work in basements and shafts.
“Residents have requested for additional monitoring and we will post two more senior staff for the monitoring of ongoing construction work. The residents were assured that NBCC is following all due process,” said P K Gupta, CMD of NBCC.
In terms of monitoring residents requested that ED should monitor this project on monthly basis and should undertake surprise inspection of the site.
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.
