The buyers of Spire Woods, a group housing project in Sector 103 near Dwarka Expressway, met Gurgaon deputy commissioner TL Satyaprakash on Tuesday over a three-year delay in getting possession of their flats.
Satyaprakash directed district town planner (planning) to discuss the matter with senior officials and contest any liquidation orders of the high court.
Representatives of Spire Woods Resident Association told the DC that the high court, in March, had appointed a provisional liquidator after the company expressed helplessness in completing its ongoing projects. A liquidator is required to seal logbooks and offices of a company and assess its assets and liabilities.
Harried buyers had also met Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday after the district grievances committee meeting and requested government intervention to resolve the issue.
“A serious case. We should impress upon headquarters to contest orders of High court, if they have asked for liquidation (sic),” the DC directed the DTP in a file noting.
“As many as 520 buyers have paid for the houses and are currently paying bank EMIs on housing loans and also rent for the places where they are staying. The company has closed its offices and there is no response from the promoters,” said Vishal Dubey, president of the buyers’ association.
A group of promoters had formed AN Buildwell Private Limited and launched Spire Woods project in 2011. The project was to have 520 units in 12 multi-storey buildings on 11.5 acres. Dubey said the project was based on fraudulent representation that a foreign company had 42% shareholding in the company.
“We really appreciate the DC’s decision to challenge the liquidation. It will provide relief to large number of house owners,” said Shashi Gupta, a buyer.
“There are half constructed towers some of which are flooded with water. We are at a loss,” said Priti Nath, another buyer.
HT tried to reach out to two promoters -- SK Hooda and S Gandhi -- through calls and text messages but there was no response.
On Monday, a representative of the builders’, advocate Maninder Singh said, “We are ready to sit with buyers and find a solution to this problem which no doubt is complex.”
