The decision came after the Uttar Pradesh government instructed the Noida authority to identify and rejuvenate ponds in order to revamp the groundwater table during the rainy season, officials added.

“In accordance with the Uttar Pradesh government’s instructions, we have directed the circle officers and the land department to work in coordination to take effective measures to work for the revival of the ponds,” said Maheshwari.

Identification of ponds involves 2 concerned ponds that will likely prepare an action plan and identify ponds used for rejuvenation. 

“If any pond is encroached upon then the authority’s land department will remove the encroachment so that the beautification and rejuvenation work can be executed at the site,” said Maheshwari.

Officials will also take help if needed from the Gautam Budh Nagar district administration in order to take profile of ponds as well as prepare a file in its current state. A database will be made to protect them from future damage.
