Ghaziabad Flat Owners Association To Go 200-Member Strong
In case you are one of those who reside in highrises of Ghaziabad and who find it hard to get their grievances addressed, here is good news. With an aim to help residents living in highrises, the city’s Federation of Association of Apartment Owners has decided to increase the number of branches across the city. It will also become 200-member strong after the new initiative is launched—the current membership stands at 98.
The federation, which also held its first regional meeting at Crossing Republic, has operations only in the Trans-Hindon areas so far.
“We have been able to raise the main issues pervading Ghaziabad, but could not take up local problems. For instance, garbage collection and disposal is a major issue in Raj Nagar Extension, but has not been highlighted properly. We will help the local committee in raising the matter to the government department concerned,” Federation President Alok Kumar was quoted by Hindustan Times as saying.
Ghaziabad might have been rated the fastest moving city in the government’s Clean India Survey of 2018 (from 315 in 2017, the city moved up its ranking to 36 this year), but its inefficacy in dealing with its waste might mar the changes of the city to become clear in the times to come. While it generates around 850 metric tonne of solid waste daily, only 300 mt of this waste is treated and put to better use. That remains a major concern for those who live in the city, especially those who have invested in the city’s luxury real estate.
