Homebuyers in Greater Noida West (commonly known as Noida Extension) have warned the government that they will launch a ‘mega stir’ before the upcoming Assembly election in Uttar Pradesh if the delay in registry and possession of their homes continues.
Thousands of homebuyers are living in high-rise apartment buildings without registry papers from the registrar’s office due to builder-authority disputes.
“We have had numerous meetings with the authority and builder but all in vain. People are living in their flats like tenants without registry papers. God forbid, if any natural calamity strikes, we will not be covered under any insurance without registry,” said Abhishek Kumar, President of Noida Extension Flat Owners’ Welfare Association (Nefowa).
NO HELP FROM MLA, MP
The residents said they have repeatedly sought help from the local legislator and parliamentarian but received no assistance.
“We are done seeking help from the MLA, MP and Greater Noida authority. The MP and MLA only visit to seek votes. Now, if we don’t get our registry, we will launch a mega stir,”Anupam, a resident of a high-rise building, said.
DELAY IN POSSESSION
Apart from awaiting registry, nearly 95,000 homebuyers have still not been given possession of their flats in the national capital region. Most of these flats are in Noida Extension.
“The government, administration and authority are least bothered as the sufferer is the common middle class honest taxpayer. Had there been some other group of people suffering like this, the government would have helped,” said homeowner Mrityunjay Jha.
