A land measuring 6,000 sq metre and valued at approximately Rs 24 crore was reclaimed by the Noida Authority on Thursday, as it continued with its anti-encroachment drive in the city, officials said.
The landfalls in Chhijarsi area, under Work Circle 4 of the authority, and the construction that had come up there were razed down on orders of NOIDA CEO Ritu Maheshwari, they said.
"The land was encroached by Satyaprakash, Devprakash, Sonu Sharma and Jitendra Sharma. The encroachment was cleared by the authority with the help of police and the land reclaimed," the Noida Authority said.
"A boundary wall on the land had given way to 16 small shops and 50 shanties, which had come up there illegally and they too were cleared from the encroached land," it said.
"The reclaimed land is spread over an area of 6,000 sq metre and is valued at Rs 24 crore," the authority said.
The authority officials have approached police with a complaint against people who had illegally occupied the government land, and an FIR has been registered against them, it added.
