A Delhi-based developer has been booked for duping a home buyer of Rs 10 lakh while booking a house in Gurgaon.
The case was filed following a court order. DS Manchanda, who lives in a villa at Orchid Petals' condominium in Gurgaon Sector-49, approached Delhi's Patiala House court saying that the developer failed to complete the conveyance deed of his property as it didn't have the occupancy certificate.
Balkishen Saraf, one of the directors at Orchid Petals, said, "We will take appropriate legal recourse." He said the occupancy certificates are obtained gradually as the project is completed phase wise.
Metropolitan magistrate Ashok Kumar said, "certain cognizable offences are disclosed, which need investigation".
Manchanda's lawyer said that the buyer had paid the stamp duty of more than Rs 10 lakh for the conveyance deed.
