Noida authority not to allow increase in the Floor Area Ratio (FAR) in under construction project.

Noida authority CEO, PK Agarwal, categorically stated that the authority would not concur in the increase in FAR for under construction projects in the city. This assurance was given to a delegation of Confederation of Noida Residents Welfare Association (CONRWA). He also assured that from now onwards NOC and CC will only be issued to builders fulfilling completion common facilities, payment of dues by the builders as per latest ruling and completing the infrastructure work of under construction towers of projects.
The above measures have been announced in the wake of complaints received from home buyers regarding squandering of their hard earned money by the builders on the pretext of the last minute unauthorised and non-schedule increase in the FAR which inflict additional cost burden in respect of the property unit and also quantum increase in the stamp duty to be paid. The President of the CONRWA Shri PS Jain, mentioned that many home buyers have already such unauthorised and unscheduled charges which did not form part of their initial sale agreement. SK Gaur, Chief Planner and Architect of thw Noida authority was also present in the meeting who observed that the difficulties faced by the home buyers have also increased with non-completion of project.

Many other issues also come up for discussion in the said meeting as regards unauthorised parking in front of schools, hospitals, commercial complex. The CEO concurred with the CONRWA suggestion that the parking may be allowed inside the school/hospital/building complexes instead of encroaching on the outside road. Similarly, it was agreed, that in the residential apartment complex visitors parking will be provided within the campus and not outside the society gate, thereby preventing encroachment on the roads. Besides, to discourage encroachment no roadside parking of autos/rickshaws within 50 mtrs of street intersection and entry/exit gates of RWA/Society complexes will be allowed. Agarwal also shared that the multi-level parking will soon be ready and management of vendors/hawkers within designated vendor zone is in the anvil. Auto cycle/rickshaw stand will bear yellow paint marking and authorised parking areas will be marked and painted. CONRWA delegation also impressed upon the Noida authority the need to remove encroachment of local sector market/commercial places and undertaking frequent fogging and spraying of anti-larvae disinfectants.
