The Noida Authority has identified around 600 vacant plots of various sizes across the city. This was done through a drone survey conducted by the National Information Centre (NIC). The Authority plans to float a residential plot scheme after on-site inspections and verification of online records of the plots are conducted, which began on Wednesday. For this, officials have been directed to complete all groundwork in the next seven days.
NIC submitted the report of their drone survey, which was conducted with the help of the geographic information system (GIS), around 15 days ago. As many as 600 plots have been identified, which are in the process of being verified. Many of these plots are likely to be of allottees, so we have to find out who they have been allotted to, how many such plots are there, since when they have been lying vacant and the reasons. A similar survey will be conducted for commercial and institutional plots and those who have defaulted on payments of Rs 40 lakh or above will have their plot allotments cancelled, officials said.
The authority will also be checking our online records as well as carry out a physical verification of the plots. Once the authority collate a list of vacant plots, a residential plot scheme will be floated as directed by Noida Authority chief executive officer (CEO) Ritu Maheshwari.She has given clear instructions to cancel allotments of vacant plots with defaulters of above Rs 40 lakh after verification and necessary procedures,” said the official, adding that a similar exercise will be carried out for commercial and institutional plots as well. The cash-strapped Authority aims to generate revenue once the schemes for allotment of residential, commercial and institutional plots are launched.
The teams from the Authority have been given a week’s time to complete all groundwork and compile the list. They will also identify defaulters during their ground checks.
