GNIDA to allow temple in Gaur City 2 society, NOC from two-third flat owners must, ET RealEstate

NOIDA: Residents of Gaur City 2 protested against their builder and the society maintenance team on Saturday morning for removing a temporary temple structure that had come up in an open parking lot.

The society maintenance team said the temple stood in a parking lot, and the owners had raised objections over it.

Later, the GNIDA designated a spot near the society park for building a new temple on the condition that a two-thirds majority of residents pass a no-objection certificate to the proposal.

According to the society maintenance team, it had served residents several notices to remove the temple after the parking lot owners objected to it, but no one paid heed, forcing the team to clear the area. When residents found the temple gone, they gathered at the site around 10 am on Saturday and raised slogans against the builder.

“The temple came up on August 1. We know the temple was there till 1.30am on Saturday. But at 4am on the same day, we found it gone,” said one of the residents protesting the move.

Soon, police reached the spot to keep the situation under control and launched a probe into the matter.

“During inquiry, we found that the maintenance team had designated the spot where the temple stood as a parking area. The owners of the parking area had complained about the temple at the maintenance office, after which the team issued notices to the residents to remove the temple. But despite several warnings, the structure was there till the maintenance team removed it,” said Anil Kumar, the station house officer of Bisrakh police station.

On Saturday afternoon, a joint team of GNIDA officials, police, builder representatives, and residents discussed the matter and chose an alternative site for a temple.

“Our team inspected the area and found an alternative spot for a temple near the society park. But residents need to get NOC from two-thirds of the flat owners so that no issues arise in the future. Then, the GNIDA will give its final nod for building the temple according to rules and guidelines,” said GNIDA additional CEO Amandeep Duli.

“We had constructed two temples, in Gaur City 1 and 2, so residents could offer their prayers. It is completely wrong to establish a temple anywhere else. The service and sewers line may pass under such temples, which would be wrong. Right now, our responsibility is to provide parking to every resident. Nobody should build a temple in someone’s parking lot. It also goes against the GNIDA rules. In the future, if people want to build a temple, they can build it only after taking approval from the Authority,” said the media-in-charge of Gaur Group.
