Apart from these, horticulture work also requires attention in some of these parks, with grass and plants drying up. Residents said repeated complaints have not yielded any results from the Greater Noida Authority so far.
Rishi Pal Bhati, RWA president of Delta 1 Sector, said, “The railings and boundary walls of the Rajesh Pilot Park are broken for six months. Open gyms are also lying in shambles due to the shoddy work done by the contractor. The equipment are damaged and our children are getting hurt. We contacted the authority and contractors, but no action has been taken yet.” He added that apart from repair work on open gyms, the broken swings and the iron railings also needs to be fixed.
Bhati had also written to GNIDA CEO, following which officials from the authority visited the Sector last month. “During their visit, residents highlighted the problem of the unkempt parks and also updated them on how the CCTV cameras installed by the RWA in the Sector’s guard room at gate number 4 and boundary wall were broken by a local builder in the area. Even then, no action was taken by GNIDA,” Bhati said.
When contacted, Kapil Dev Singh, senior manager of urban service at GNIDA, told TOI that tender for the parks has already been floated and work will begin once the tender is allotted.
“If we get a response by April 7 then repair work will be allotted immediately to the contractor. However, if we get less than three respondents, then there might be chances of the work getting delayed further,” Singh said.
