NOIDA: The promise given to Noida Extension homebuyers about clearance to the Greater Noida Master Plan 2021 on May 29 turned out to be another damp squib. Buyers have now decided that they will stage a dharna in front of the planning board on June 8 to pressure them into clearing the plan.
Since the October 21 verdict of the Allahabad high court, buyers have been promised time and again that construction work would resume once the planning board approves the Master Plan. This month itself, three dates had been promised to them – May 15, 22 and 29.
Meanwhile, sources in Greater Noida Authority say that construction will have to wait till legal cases are cleared. “Construction cannot begin even on projects on the land of Patwari village, despite majority of the farmers having accepted the compensation formula. The Authority has to wait for a decision on the SLP it has filed in the Supreme Court against the Allahabad HC order,” said a Greater Noida Authority official.
Besides, farmers have also filed several appeals in the Supreme Court seeking denotification of land, apart from the pending writ petitions in the Allahabad HC. “Land belonging to farmers who have rejected the compensation formula is part of the plots allotted to developers and construction cannot be done around them,” said farmers’ lawyer Parmindera Bhati.
