Soil Testing Must for Group Housing Plot Allotment

For ensuring the compliance of Disaster Management Act 2005 in development of any group housing society, we have written to all the 3 authorities in the district asking them to ensure soil testing of the land before plot allotment for group housing.
This is of high importance considering the geographical vulnerability of the NGY region (Noida-Greater Noida and Yamuna) to earthquakes.

It is recommended that when booking a flat, you ask your builder for a copy of the soil feasibility test report, authority allotment letter and the map sanctioned for the plot.

Good thing sir. more  
This is an important ask. unless we all stand up and ask, it will not be followed by neither authority nor builders. more  
Thank you DM sir for the information. more  
This is essentially required. Very useful, which must be scupulously followed. more  
Please issue an advisory wrt water supply, sewerage and stormwater connections also to these authorities. Inadequate potable water supply, blocked sewerage lines/backflow and severe flooding during rains in many residential sectors is common problem. Three mega sewage treatment plants have been constructed in Noida based on latest technolgy but treated recycled water has not been supplied back to individual plots and parks for non-potable use like flushing, horticulture and industrial cooling. NGT has banned use of fresh water for construction purposes but Noida Authority is not progressive enough to implement the dual water supply lines in all sectors on priority basis. Kindly act tough to implement the Ministry of Enviornment and Forest Policy of not permitting use of fresh water on all new projects since 2005 and part of EIA approval for all building projects in UP also since 2005. Unauthorized use of ground water for irrigation and air conditioning in cooling towers is very common in Industrial and Commercial Sectors of Noida and residential sector residents use fresh water for park irrigation and car washing. If STP treated water can be supplied in all sectors as secondary water source minimum 30% of fresh water demand will come down and Ganaga water can remain in the river/used elsewhere. It will be a very good initiative if pursued by the DM Sir. more
