Noida: The Allahabad high court on Tuesday issued a notice to the NCR Planning Board to file an affidavit within the next 30 days explaining why it has failed to sanction the Master Plan 2021 of Greater Noida Authority even after six months of its order passed in October 2011. The high court passed this order after hearing a petition filed by Noida Extension homebuyers.
Counsel for homebuyers, VK Singh, said, “The court has given the planning board four weeks to file a counter affidavit upon our petition.”
Meanwhile, sources in the Planning Board said that the UP government has not yet sent its replies or clarifications to the questions and objections raised by the board. “The ball is in their court. We have no communication so far after the decision taken last time at the board meeting which was attended by a UP minister,” said a senior official of the board.
Homebuyers of Noida Extension had filed a writ petition asking it to issue a writ, order or direction to the planning board to take a decision in consonance with the verdict delivered by the high court on 21 October 2011. Buyers want construction on housing projects to resume in the region at the earliest.
Hundreds of housing projects in Noida Extension continue to be in limbo as the Master Plan 2021 of Greater Noida Authority is yet to be approved by the planning board. Thousands of middle-income homebuyers have invested in these projects. Source>>>
