After 12 years, Yamuna Expressway authority starts plot registry

The Yamuna Expressway industrial development authority (Yeida) on Wednesday said it has begun the process to register residential plots in sectors 18 and 20 it had allotted in 2009.

About 21,000 plots in the two sectors were allotted to individuals. The authority has already facilitated about 5,500 registries in the two sectors. By the end of the month, it aims to executed 2,500.

“Work is on in around 11,000 plots. The registry of around 7,000 plots is already under process. Work to develop basic facilities in these two sectors is in full swing,” said Arun Vir Singh chief executive officer of the Yeida.

Construction is in its final stages in blocks I and J in sector 18, as well as A, B, C and D blocks in sector 20, he said.

Meanwhile, the association representing the association of plot buyers in the Yamuna region have forwarded a six-point demand to the authority before more registries are carried out. “Farmers’ issues in C, D, R, S, T and U pockets of sector 20 are yet to be settled and no construction work can take place till then,” said Safal Suri from the association.

“We will soon hold camps to address the problems in certain blocks and facilitate physical possession to the allottees. We are holding meetings with farmers to resolve all issues,” said Singh.
