Noida authority frees land worth crores of rupees
Noida: The Noida Authority on Thursday undertook an anti-encroachment drive in Noida sector 127 and freed land worth crores of rupees which was illegally occupied and shops were built on the land and were given on rent. The authority officials had to face heated argument from the land encroachers and people associated with them during the drive but the drive executed with support of police force.
During the drive, the authority demolished all dhabas constructed illegally by encroaching government's land. The encroachers tried to stop authority's drive but seeing heavy police personnel with the authority officials they could not stop the drive.
Rajesh Singh, Officer on Special Duty (OSD), Noida Authority said that the anti-encroachment drive was undertaken in Bakhtawarpur village in sector 127 of Noida. The land, which is estimated to be worth crores, was allotted to a company but the allottee could not get possession due to heavy encroachment on land.
"We had issued several notices to people who had encroached the land but they did not heed on notices. Therefore, an anti-encroachment drive was conducted early on Thursday morning. It also came to light that the encroachers were illegally taking rents from those to whom the property was rented out," Singh said.
Singh further also stated that drive will continue to free all government's land illegally encroached.
