Here are some Public Awareness Initiatives Undertaken by UP Government and Noida, Greater Noida Authorities
if you do not know then this is must read for you. When the government starts implementing a plan, the citizens must support the campaign of initiatives by abiding the rules as laid by the administration. Change begins from a single person and has the capability to inspire.
Cleanliness Drive supporting Swachh Bharat Mission
The government started the cleanliness campaign in the name of Swacch Bharat Mission and since then major cities in India have implemented it in their own ways. The UP government is also doing its best to clean up cities and create awareness amongst people to follow best practices and keep their city clean and green. This impacts real estate sales. For example, a multinational company would definitely like to have their office in a green and clean vicinity. Same goes true for homes as home buyers wish for cleaner areas.
Road and Rapid Public Transport Development
The development of road and metro is another major works of the new government. The metro has reached to various sectors of Noida and Greater Noida. Well built roads complement these metro stations as people can travel hassle-free to any part of Noida and Greater Noida with good metro connectivity and roads.
Public Awareness & Drive Against Plastic
Plastic is one of the slowest degrading materials once used. Each year plastic pollution leads to blockage of pipes, water drainage system in the NCR region. Certainly, the water logging leads to traffic jams especially during monsoons.
Though plastic usage is banned across the country but there are some loopholes and vendors as well as the general public use it. The government has organized a public awareness and drive against plastic. Here are some ways by which it is trying to discourage people from using plastic bags:
- Imposing fine on shopkeepers and vendors using plastic bags to sell their products.
- Creating an awareness for disuse of plastic use and encouraging people to use paper or bags made out of natural resources like cotton, jute, etc.
- Distribution of bio-degradable bags with the help of volunteers.
Water Conservation – ‘Jal Shakti Andolan‘
The Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his second term and his first Mann ki Baat episode has highlighted the need for water conservation. He has envisioned the water saving campaign to be as big as the earlier Swacch Bharat Mission. He asked various individuals and groups to come forward and create awareness around Jan Shakti Andolan.
Param Homes is also dedicated to supporting the government in this initiative. Here is a short poem dedicated to inspiring people to understand the value of water – the elixir or life.
The groundwater level of major cities in India is shrinking at a very fast level. This is very worrisome because the population of all the cities and India as a whole is growing at a very rapid pace.
Obviously, water shortage and lack of supply would lead to bad circumstances for everyone. Real estate industry can get affected to a large scale if we do not act now.
Traffic Management Using Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Traffic management is an issue that has been a pain area for the Authorities and the state government. Lack of traffic police personnel has been one of the reasons for the mismanagement. The other major reasons being lack of traffic sense, breaking of traffic rules and untrained staff.
To solve this issue the government is testing the AI based traffic management system which even Delhi is trying to implement. The inclusion of AI will lessen human involvement. If the testing goes well, Noida and Greater Noida might see a positive change when it comes to traffic management. The test project is being conducted in collaboration with the French government which provided AI based traffic management kiosks/system to Noida Traffic Police to help them screen the violators.
Deployment of Additional Police Personnel
The shortage of police personnel is a major reason behind lack of proper implementation of law and order situation, traffic woes and increases turnaround time to address public grievances. The police department has raised this concern with the government which has accepted their request and planned for the hiring, training and deployment of additional police personnel in Noida and Greater Noida.

In addition to this, the newly announced Yeida City which will house the upcoming International Jewar Airport will also be developed in consideration to the international standards. Many residential, commercial and retail developments are taking place in this region too apart from the homes, office spaces and shops available in Noida and Greater Noida.
The better waste management and guided rag picking will ensure clean places adding to the aesthetics of the twin cities. Green and clean location are always preferred by home buyers as well as the office space investors. This is particularly true when in
Plantation of Trees and Herbal Plants
This is one of the uniquest way in which the air quality of expressways, road networks and public spaces can be improved. The measure has been suggested by the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh himself. The herbal plants that ensure better oxygen release in exchange for carbon dioxide will be selected for this purpose. if such plants can be planted and their growth is ensured, for sure, it will lead to better air quality and help combat air pollution.
