The demolition drive of the land, estimated to cost over Rs 24 crore, was carried out by a team led by project engineer KR Verma, officials said.
    
Some of the affected villagers have claimed that their houses were constructed decades ago and they were given land on pattas (title deed to a property) in 1981-82, they said. The officials said whether the land was allotted on patta or not would be investigated.
    
"If found that the pattas were allotted then those persons will be given alternate land. Otherwise, nothing will be given," they said.
    
"Presently, the thrust is to construct the FNG road to provide better connectivity between Faridabad, Noida and Ghaziabad," the officials said.
    
Federation of Noida Residents Welfare Association president N P Singh said, "FNG project will provide fast connectivity to residents of Ghaziabad, Noida and Faridabad."
