A Greater Noida based activist, Pradeep Dahaliya has alleged that despite making complaints on IGRS portal Gr Noida Ind. Development Authority (GNIDA) has not carried out sanitation related work in 110 villages falling under its jurisdiction. According to Dahaliya the GNIDA has imposed a minor penalty on contractor who undertakes the sanitation work however this is merely an eyewash as this has not changed anything on the ground as far as sanitation work in these villages is concerned.
Some of the villages affected by lack of sanitation and cleanliness work are namely Saini, Baidpura, Kheri, Bhanota, Bhola Rawal, Sadulapur, Sunpura, Kailaspur apart from many others.
Due to apathetic attitude of the GNIDA, the villagers have to carry out the cleaning exercise on their own, alleged Dahaliya.
Now Dahaliya has again complained over the portal seeking answers on firms and contractors and the date on which the penalties have been imposed on these contractor(s). He also alleged that there is a nexus of officials and contractors where a handsome amount is paid to these contractors although they never complete the targeted work. He also alleged that this is in clear violation of NGT and Prime Minister’s Swachhata drive.
Even after repeated efforts GNIDA sanitation staff could not be contacted.
