In a statement made after a joint board meeting of Noida and Greater Noida Authorities, CEO and chairman Rama Raman said the Noida Authority is going online with 152 services which will be available at http://www.noidaforcitizens.com.
“The site will include links to services such as transfer memorandum, lease deed, mortgage, building sanctions and completion certificates. People and officials of the Authority will be able to check the status of each case online and see the progress. People will not have to come to the Authority’s office for their problems or face any harassment,” Raman said.
He said for effective monitoring, Noida Authority officials will receive text messages regarding daily receipts, daily disposals and overdue applications.
In addition, he said, officials were working on traffic issues, including regulation for cycle-rickshaws and auto-rickshaws and additional infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians.
“We have been getting complaints that the cycle lanes and pedestrian lanes are not up to the mark and sufficient. Besides, rickshaws don’t follow any rules and park anywhere. These will be strictly checked from now on,” he said.
Raman said an ecopark spread over 2,500 acres was being planned on Surajpur wetlands in Greater Noida, and that consultants had been appointed for the project.
The Authority has decided to acquire land in Greater Noida at an increased compensation of Rs 2,500 per square metre.
“We have also reserved for them 6 per cent of their current plot in areas being developed. If they decline to take it, they will be remunerated additionally at Rs 1,000 per square metre for their current land holding,” he said.
