Only 30% orig­i­nal al­lot­tees left

Jal­vayu Vi­har is a very well-con­nected area in Noida. I have been living here for al­most 30 years now. This place has de­vel­oped into one of the most up­mar­ket ar­eas of Noida with hos­pi­tals, schools and shop­ping malls close by.

With time, how­ever, I have also seen the living con­di­tions get­ting worse here. As against one or two en­try gates in most Res­i­dent Wel­fare As­so­ci­a­tions (RWA), we have seven to eight en­trance gates in our so­ci­ety. As a re­sult, there are thefts in the lo­cal­ity al­most ev­ery day. Pas­sages are blocked by the land mafia. Res­i­dents from other sec­tors park their cars here, so­ci­ety dues are not paid and drains are also blocked. We don’t see any swacch Bharat here, it’s just dirty Bharat.

The whole so­ci­ety is al­lot­ted to Air Force and Navy per­son­nel is now oc­cu­pied by non-ser­vice peo­ple. About 70% apart­ments have been sold to out­siders who are not reg­is­tered mem­bers of the so­ci­ety. As a re­sult, no one is ready to co­op­er­ate. At times things be­come un­man­age­able. There is no one to ad­dress im­por­tant issues as there is only one head ap­pointed to look after the whole so­ci­ety.

We have been re­quest­ing the com­mis­sioner of the hous­ing board, based in Luc­know, to con­vert this so­ci­ety from Awas Samiti to RWA. The board has been urged to di­vide the so­ci­ety into 15 blocks with sep­a­rate man­age­ment com­mit­tees for each block. They, how­ever, say the work is huge and have been de­lay­ing things

since Oc­to­ber 2011.
