A decade gone, Jaypee Sports City homebuyers seek YEIDA’s help – ET RealEstate

NOIDA: Uncertainty looms large over the fate of more than 5,000 homebuyers who have invested money in the real estate projects that were part of Jaypee Sports City, a township along the Yamuna Expressway in Greater Noida.

Even after paying 80% of the total unit cost and waiting for a decade, these buyers have no clarity when they will get possession of the properties.

Jaypee Sports City Homebuyers Welfare Society, the association of the homebuyers stuck in the projects, on Saturday forwarded their representation to Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority and urged officials to consider their interests during the next board meeting.

The subsidiary of Jaiprakash Associates floated 15 different projects under its master plan. Among them seven projects are in various stages of construction and 5,235 individuals have bought properties in the seven projects. Three of them were group housing projects — Kassia, Kove, Buddh Circuit Studios — while the other four offered developed plots and villas — Country Homes 1, Country Homes 2, GreenCrest Homes and Krowns.

Vice president of the society, Sunil Kumar Sharma said, “If at all the proposal of the Jaypee Associates is approved by the YEIDA’s board, we want officials to ensure that the interests of the homebuyers is fully protected. The possession schedule of the seven projects needs to be taken into account before any relief is offered to the group.”

The group of buyers also pointed out that the Uttar Pradesh government should order an inquiry against former YEIDA officials who were instrumental in offering relaxations to the group till 2017-18. “Moreover, due to Covid-19 lockdown and limited visits of plot owners to the projects, some local villagers encroached upon the land for carrying out farming,” said Shamendra Singh, a member of the society.

In December 2019, YEIDA cancelled the allotment of the lease deed and took back possession of the 2,500-acre land over non-payment of dues. YEIDA officials said that the dues amount to about Rs 950 crore at present.

To resolve the crisis, YEIDA will move a representation before senior UP government officials during the next board meeting. “We want the projects to be ready and hence have taken strong measures. We will certainly take the plea of buyers into consideration,” said Authority CEO Arun Vir Singh.

Rehabilitation of displaced families for Noida airport to be complete by July 15 – ET RealEstate

GREATER NOIDA: The rehabilitation of all displaced families, without which work on the first phase of the Noida airport project cannot start, is expected to be completed by July 15.

On Wednesday, Meerut divisional commissioner Surendra Singh visited the six villages where the proposed Jewar airport will come up, to monitor the progress of the rehabilitation process.

Nearly 600 of the over 3,000 families have partially been moved from their homes, out of which a majority of the families are from Nagla Ganeshi, Nagla Phoolkan and Dayanatpur Khera villages.

In the first phase, officials have to get all the six villages vacated to organise the foundation stone laying ceremony for the Noida International Airport project. Meanwhile, villagers have said they are not being given time to complete the construction of their houses in Jewar Bangar township and are instead being asked to shift immediately.

In fact, senior UP government officials are monitoring the progress of the project on a daily basis. A WhatsApp group has been formed to share the updates and issues about the airport project on a real-time basis with officials in Lucknow. The Gautam Budh Nagar administration, which has deployed nine sub-divisional magistrates, sends the status report to the chief minister’s office every evening. Senior officials of Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority and representatives of Yamuna International Airport Private Limited (YIAPL), the special purpose vehicle established by the UP government to jointly develop the project, also had a discussion with the divisional commissioner in the evening.

YEIDA’s CEO Arun Vir Singh, who is also the head of YIAPL, said, “Villagers are being given all the support to get their house constructed over the plots allocated to them in Jewar Bangar. We are providing 24-hour supply of electricity and water so that the construction of houses can take place even during the night. Nagla Ganeshi and Kishorepur have already been vacated and all the 250 families in them have shifted.”

Of the total 1,334 hectares to be handed over to the subsidiary of Zurich AG given the concession rights to set up and operate the airport, 1,287 hectares do not have any structures. As the runway has been planned over and around Nagla Ganeshi, officials convinced 238 families from the village to uproot first.

Member of the monitoring committee set up by the government to take feedback from the villagers, Mozzam Khan said, “Majority of the villagers have been supporting the project and have made up their mind to shift. However, a section of villagers wants to be given some time to construct their houses due to financial hardships and other reasons.”

Homes being built at Jewar airport rehabilitation township – ET RealEstate

GREATER NOIDA: More than 100 families from Nagla Ganeshi have started building their houses in the new township developed at Jewar Bangar for families who will shift from the villages that have been acquired for Noida International Airport.

Gautam Budh Nagar district administration and the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) have held several rounds of talks with the villagers and half the residents from the area have started the shifting process. Plots had already been allocated to the families affected by the Jewar airport project.

Delayed because of the pandemic and subsequent lockdown, the deadline for the township with more than 3,000 plots is June 30. “The allotment process is over. Some pockets in the township are ready and people are being asked to start construction work in those areas,” said the officer on special duty, YEIDA, Shailendra Bhatia.

The administration had started the process of plot allocation for 238 families from Nagla Ganeshi in March this year. The former pradhan of the village, Rohtash Thakur, said: “Gradually, the entire population of the village will shift. Of the 238 families here, 110 have already started constructing houses. We have raised some pending issues with the authority. The other villagers will start shifting once officials address those issues.”

He added that those building houses, however, are finding it difficult to get workers and construction material because of the curfew.

“People are demanding a premium to send construction material to the site and getting labourers is also difficult. The villagers will be given at least three months’ time to shift after the entire township gets ready,” Rohtash said. Officials said that only those who have been allocated plots in the complete section of the township are being asked to shift now. “We are giving them adequate time to finish work,” Bhatia said.

The sizes of the plots varies between 50 sqm and 500 sqm and they were allocated according to the size of the original houses of the villagers and open courtyard used to keep cattle, store agricultural tools and animal fodder.

Bhatia added that 3,003 plots are yet to be handed over to the villagers.

Although officials have fenced the airport boundary, unless villagers are shifted out of their homes, work on the project cannot start. “The concessionaire appointed for developing the airport, Yamuna International Airport Private Limited, had already initiated the process of shortlisting contractors. We are under pressure to get the area vacated and hand it over to the officials so that work can start at the earliest,” said an official.

Rohtash added that recently, power supply had been disconnected in a part of Nagla Ganeshi for three days. “We alerted senior officials in Lucknow and told them about the issue. The supply was restored after their intervention,” he said, alleging that it was deliberately done.

Officials at the power department, however, denied the charges. “It must have been a fault in the power transmission system and it was rectified” an official said.
