Weed-infested vacant plots in Noida raise major security concerns

Unoccupied plots in Noida have become a major security concern in several areas, prompting some residents' welfare organisations to call on the Noida Authority to levy stiff fines on their owners.

The weed-infested vacant plots, the majority of which have been converted into dump yards, endanger the residents' health because they are home to swarms of poisonous insects, rodents, and snakes.

Vacant plots with or without incomplete houses or structures are scattered throughout the area, according to Umesh Sharma, RWA president of Sector 122.

According to Sharma, there are more than 80 such plots in the sector in this condition. There were 110 of these plots last year.

He also mentioned that these plots have become a haven for poisonous snakes, germs, and insects.

Sharma also said that the Noida Authority should levy a suitable fine on all such plots or house owners or investors, who are mostly looking to sell them for a profit rather than use them for residential purposes.

According to Asim Thakurta, a Sector 39 resident, they have written to the Noida Authority several times about such under-construction houses becoming dumping grounds.

It has been observed that when the Authority issues a notice to the owners, they simply clean up their plot and leave. The problem resurfaces three months later.

This problem will reoccur unless the Authority takes strict action against such owners, such as levying hefty fines alongside notices to clean up, says Thakurta.

The Noida Authority identified approximately 600 vacant plots of various sizes across the city in August through a geographic information system (GIS) survey conducted using drone cameras with the assistance of the National Information Centre.

A residential plot scheme will be launched shortly based on their physical and online record verification, authority sources informed the media.
