As many as 200 homebuyers of Uniworld Garden II project on Sunday hit the streets and 'begged' for money on MG Road to protest the delay in possession of their flats.


It is a 16-tower residential project of realty major Unitech in Sector 47 on Sohna Road. The buyers were supposed to get possession of their flats by 2011.

The buyers started the demonstration from City Centre Mall and walked up till Sahara Mall. Armed with banners and placards, they called it a UG-II (Uniworld Garden II) scam.

"We had paid nearly `300 crore to Unitech in 2009 and still haven't got possession of our flats. We have to pay EMI plus the house rent and therefore we have no other option but to beg money from others," said Joginder Singh, president of the Uniworld Garden II apartment owners' association.

Unitech, however, did not respond to queries from HT, despite repeated attempts.

"We have given Unitech time till Diwali to give the possession of our flats. We will try to wreck their annual general meeting on September 26," said Vikas Dhingra, a buyer.Buyers had lodged a complaint of fraud and cheating against Unitech with the police commissioner, who had then marked an inquiry to ACP (Sadar). The senior town planner (STP) RK Singh had summoned Unitech officials on July 22 after receiving a complaint from buyers.

The company had submitted that five out of 16 towers of the project were complete and would be handed over to the buyers.
