Zinaida moves towards the target with better strategy
Each department (land use) of the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority was encouraged to register investment intent on the Nivesh Sarathi portal. Not only this, existing investors who have applied for new map approval and increase in FAR were contacted and encouraged to register their intent to invest. Each department was trained to facilitate and help potential investors in filing the Intent with the Authority. Weekly targets were given to all departments and progress was reviewed on a bi-weekly basis.
Investors made brand ambassadors of the department
In a meeting with key investors of Greater Noida at the Authority on 5th January, CEO Ritu Maheshwari requested these investors to become brand ambassadors of Greater Noida. Some investors requested procedures to be simplified, streamlined and fast-tracked to complete building construction. Time extension penalty and relaxation of terms and conditions were sought to ensure completion of the project within the stipulated time frame. The CEO said that serious investors should participate in the auction and develop the land parcels for the overall development of the area and employment generation. A collective demand was made at the meeting to increase security measures (such as increasing police posts) in industrial areas.
