GREATER NOIDA: Houses in Greater Noida will get Ganga water from next month, officials in the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) announced on Saturday.
GNIDA was supposed to start supplying Ganga water several months ago, but the project got delayed because of the pandemic. It was waiting for a clearance from the authorities to start work at Bisada village. GNIDA could not start digging the land there for laying the pipes because of an Indian Oil pipeline that was already there.
A total of Rs 800 crore will be spent on bringing about 85 cusecs of water into the town. The water will be supplied from the Ganga canal in Muradnagar.
GNIDA officials also claimed that only 1,500 of 19,000-odd farmers were left to be given developed plots for the land they had given up for various projects. In the next round, 387 farmers from Sakipur and Dadha villages would be given plots. These plots have already been developed and the land department is preparing a checklist that will be issued to execute registries.
Moreover, officials from the development authority visited the industrial blocks in Ecotech sector on Sunday following complaints from several businessmen about poor drainage networks, water supply, etc.
