NOIDA: Fed up with 'cancerous' encroachment in Noida and Greater Noida, the district administration has warned those government officials or staff, who are 'facilitating' the land sharks and allowing large scale land encroachment on government land in Noida and Greater Noida. The officials said that suspected officers and staff are closely observed and if anybody is found guilty or evidences are found against them then immediate action will be taken.

Noida and Greater Noida Authorities chairman Rama Raman has warned, Noida and Greater Noida Authority staff, UP irrigation, electricity and water department that if any official or staff is found guilty in supporting such land sharks, then they will have to face the music.

"We are not going to tolerate encroachment. We have decided to lodge FIR against errant land sharks and encroachers. Attack on demolition team will not stop our action against land sharks. We have taken stringent action against those, who attacked on demolition drive team," Raman said.

The Noida and Greater Noida Authorities in association with city police and district administration is cracking down heavily on large scale encroachment in river bed area. During a massive drive, the Noida Authority on Sunday freed over 5 lakh sq meter land worth over Rs 100 crore (market value). The Authority had freed four lakh sq meter land in Momnathal and Kondali village areas. Over 100 staff of Noida authority, eight JCB machines, two cranes and eight dumpers were engaged in the demolition drive.

On Saturday five lakh sq. meter land was freed after conducting messive drive in sector 144, sector 140A, sector 143, sector 150, Sehdara, Suthiyana and Lakhnawali village. The officials said that over 300 farmhouses on 1.25 lakh hectare land were developed illegally.

"In the past one year, the Authority has continuously conducted drives to make Noida encroachment free. Despite stringent actions, illegal establishments mushroomed again. So now we have decided to take on land sharks intensively and running the drive regular basis," said Noida Authority chairman and CEO Rama Raman.

"If any government official or staff is found engaged in directly or indirectly supporting the land sharks, then we will also initiate action against the staff as well," Raman said.

"To avoid legal trouble, it is advisable for buyers to check whether the property is genuine or not. All land in Noida is notified and leasehold and there is no freehold provision in the district. However, land sharks have been selling land with a freehold title. Home or land aspirants must beware of such violators," Raman added.
