It was an eventful day on 13th November 2011 when hundreds of Greater Faridabad home buyers gathered for the protest rally organized by Greater Faridabad Welfare Association (GFWA) to protest against the negligence and non development of Greater Faridabad by HUDA and Haryana District Administration. Greater Faridabad, which has been promoted as a real estate hotspot and ideal destination for people looking to own an affordable home in NCR, is a completely different story when a reality check is done. HUDA has completely ignored the region since the last decade and no development work has been carried out even though licenses were granted to private builders and colonizers to undertake and commence work on residential projects. Massive concrete structures and under-construction towers for residential properties can been seen dotting the Neharpar skyline, however all projects are unreasonably delayed and stalled due to non development of the area. Inspite of regular follow-ups and sending reminders to HUDA and district administration to start work on infrastructure development without any further delay, without which residents face imminent security and logistical problems, HUDA has been turning a blind eye to the concerns being raised by the home buyers.
Frustrated with the various incompetent government agencies and every request falling on deaf ears, Greater Faridabad Welfare Association organized a massive protest rally to serve as an awakening call to HUDA and Haryana government to commence development work at the earliest or face the ire of the public which can reflect in the upcoming polls. The growing dissatisfaction among the home buyers can be seen and is evident from the fact that large number of people gathered in support of the protest rally.
The rally started from the BPTP Bridge, Sector 81, Faridabad to NH-2 (Mathura Road), crossing Ajronda Chowk and then proceeded to DC residence near Gymkhana Club at Sector 15, and then finally concluding at the BPTP Bridge. Petition and memorandum was submitted to DC at his residence.
A similar peaceful protest was also organized on 1st March 2011, infront of HUDA Administration office, Sector 12 to protest against non development by HUDA and various fraudulent activities being carried out by builders. Since March 2011, no concrete action has been taken on the request put forward by the public. This protest rally marks the beginning of a new society, who will not accept any incompetent or ineffective government and will take any step to ensure that their basic civil rights are protected and met, and their hard earned money will not go to waste.
For Greater Faridabad. A Better Faridabad.
