Greater Noida: This is exciting news for residents of First Avenue in Gower, west of Greater Noida. Residents finally got a separate water connection. This issue has been unresolved for the past 5-6 years. It was finally resolved after the meeting on November 26, 2021.
The Greater Noida Authority, under the leadership of Santosh Kumar of the Authority’s Builders Group OSD, held a meeting with apartment buyers and builders on First Avenue in Gower, West of Greater Noida . Residents asked First Avenue to be connected to water supply separately. OSD gave instructions to separate the water meters of each society, and the builder agreed.
According to residents, the builders did not pay for the water bill for the Gaur city 1 plot, which includes various societies, and is currently about 60 million U.S. dollars. A resident shared that despite the maintenance fees collected in the past 5 to 6 years, the average amount payable by the association was about Rs 20 crore, but the builders did not pay. As a result, residents asked to separate the highway connections and pay dues so that they would be responsible for their water bills in the future.
