YEIDAAfter seven years of getting allotment by the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Authority (YEIDA), there is some good news for the allottees. The authority has taken the decision of giving possession of 6000 residential flats and plots in Greater Noida in the next couple of months. The first group which consists of 3055 allottees, have already got the letters of possession by the Authority, in the months of January and February this year.

As per the sources, the location of these 6000 flats and plots will be in sectors 22A, 22D, 18 and 20. These plots were allotted long back in between 2009-2013. Possessions are being handed over to those allottees who have their plot sizes measuring 300 meters to 500 meters.

The allotment will be done as follows, as per the sources –
• In sector 20, 666 plots will be given in pockets O and Q.
• In sector 18, 435 plots will be given in pockets 2A and 2C.
• In sector 22A, 4028 plots will be handed over.
• In sector 22D, 900 plots will be handed over.

Possession to 55 allottees, who have plots of size 400 meters, has already been given in sector 20 (Pockets A and B).

Enhanced compensation to farmers (whose land was acquired) has also been approved by YEIDA and will be distributed within another one month. Various farmers from around 77 villages are raising their voices for getting a hiked compensation of 64.7% for their land which was acquired by YEIDA.

There is a little hindrance faced by the allottees in securing their possessions because of the commotion caused by the farmers regarding the compensation. But YEIDA is trying to solve the issue by giving as much compensation as possible to as many farmers as possible. This is being done so that plot owners can get the possession of the land allotted to them.
