‘Not in layout’: Row over temple in Greater Noida’s Migsun Green Mansion

May 4, 2023

NOIDA: Residents of a condominium in Greater Noida are protesting against efforts to build a temple in the common area of the society.

Saying it encroaches on a park, which is the only playing area for children in the complex, a group of residents from Migsun Green Mansion has written to the district magistrate as well as the Uttar Pradesh State Industrial Development Authority (UPSIDA).

CBS Yadav, president of the ad-hoc AOA of the society, said the temple was not a part of the original layout of the project that was shared with them.

“Some residents have started constructing a shed-like structure illegally and are being supported by the builder. We submitted a letter to the district magistrate and the UPSIDA on April 29. It (the temple) will not only curtail the common area, which is already under dispute for floor area ration (FAR) violation, but will also leave little space for children to play,” Yadav said.

The 554-unit complex, of which 450 are occupied, is still being managed by the developer. Its occupation certificate (OC) and completion certificate (CC) have been pending since 2016.

As the society’s maintenance is still under the builder, residents said the liability to stop any kind of encroachment lies with the developer.

According to residents, UPSIDA regional manager Anil Kumar Sharma has written to Surajpur SHO Avadhesh Pratap Singh on the matter and the latter directed senior inspector Dharamveer Singh to initiate action.

TOI has a copy of the letter dated April 29.

“A few policemen visited our campus last week after this directive, but since no representative of the residents’ group that is building the structure or the builder was available, they went back,” Sandeep Bachheti, a resident, claimed.

Inderbir Singh, the president of Migsun Group, told TOI that they have not built or allowed any such structure on the complex and have no role in it. “A temporary shed, which is not part of our project layout, is being constructed by some residents of the society for worship purposes and is a matter between two residents group. We have no role in this. However, if we get majority consent (of residents) for its removal, then we will forward their letter to the police personnel concerned for its removal,” Singh said. He added they have applied for an OC.

Sharma was not available for a comment.
