‘Res­i­dents feel un­safe here’

HT Estates - - Front Page -

Iam study­ing in Class 12 in Mod­ern School, Barakhamba. We have been liv­ing in Sec­tor 92 for last three years. Be­fore that we were in Sec­tor 15, one of the most soughtafter res­i­den­tial spa­ces in Noida. Due to some per­sonal rea­son, how­ever, we de­cided to shift here. Though Sec­tor 92 is an up­com­ing sec­tor where prices are grow­ing con­sis­tently it lacks ba­sic ameni­ties. The prop­erty prices have al­ready gone very high but res­i­den­tial ameni­ties are not in place in the sec­tor. There is a lo­cal shop­ping com­plex in the sec­tor but it is yet to de­velop. Even for lit­tle items of daily use, we have to travel two to three km. We go to Sec­tor 18 for ma­jor shop­ping needs.

Parts of our sec­tors are very iso­lated and some­times when it gets dark res­i­dents feel very un­safe. A cou­ple of un­to­ward in­ci­dents have taken place in and around the sec­tor in the re­cent past. The Noida Author­ity doesn't bother about the prob­lems of the res­i­dents. Life is dif­fi­cult here. I am a na­tional level bas­ket­ball player and I in­dulge in lots of other sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties but there is no sports fa­cil­ity close by. There are clubs in other group hous­ing so­ci­eties but you can use the fa­cil­i­ties only if you live there. Out­siders are not al­lowed. I go to the sports and cul­tural club of Sec­tor 15 A, which is around 10 km away from my house. Thank­fully, a big shop­ping com­plex has come up in Sec­tor 110 close by, which has good restau­rants, recre­ational cen­tres and shop­ping op­tions.
