Noida Authority gets strict on developers regarding building construction

The Noida Authority will now be monitoring the construction of buildings by going tough with developers who use sub-standard materials, following a cave-in at the basement of a building under construction in Sector 45 last month.

Chairperson and CEO of Noida Authority, Rama Raman, has ordered the setting up of a committee comprising retired IIT professors, for keeping an eye on the constructions in Noida and Greater Noida.

"There is little monitoring of whether the developer has used the appropriate materials that are needed according to the structural design, so that the building is stable", said Manoj Rai, officer on special duty (OSD), Noida Authority.

"With both Noida and Greater Noida growing vertically, we felt it was high time quality checks were in place", he added.

About eight to 10 retired experts from IIT-Delhi and IIT-Roorkee would be appointed on Noida and Greater Noida's planning and architectural board.
