The high court had seized CEO Raman’s powers in July over a petition filed by Noida resident Jitendra Kumar Goyal. The petition questioned that how Raman could be given the charge of both the CEO of Noida authority and chairman of Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway authorities?
Meanwhile, on August 16, Akhilesh yadav government had informed the court that it had decided to retain Raman as CEO of Noida Authority as his services were required for the running of next phase of metro train from March 2017.
