A team from the Noida authority on Tuesday inspected the under-construction PAN Oasis housing project in Sector 70. It asked the builder to complete in a month all pending work for the project’s first six towers that are nearing completion.
The pending issues include fixing seepage and making lifts in all six towers fully operational. The flats in these towers are about to be ready for an occupation certificate (OC). As per norms, a buyer cannot execute registry of a flat without an OC.
“Once the builder completes all pending work and submits a compliance report and other important papers, the Noida authority will issue an OC in respect of that project,” said SC Gaur, chief architect and town planner, Noida authority.
To address home buyers’ issues, the authority is conducting inspections at project sites of various builders. On Tuesday, many affected buyers too gathered at the spot when the team, consisting of officials from the authority’s planning and other departments, reached the site in Sector 70.
Developers Patel Group, Amrapali Group and Nirala Developers are building PAN Oasis, an 18-tower project with 2,000 flats. It was announced in 2009 and the developers had promised to hand over possession to buyers by 2012.
“Even after a four-year delay we have not been able to get the registry of flats executed because the builder is yet to complete some work and deposit land dues to the authority,” said Sunny Longani, a buyer.
Another home buyer, Kapil Kumar said, “I had booked a 2-BHK flat in September 2009 and the realtor had assured possession by July 2012. I am paying EMIs as well as rent for the last four years because my builder faulted on several accounts in delivering the project.”
The realtors, however, said they will be able to deliver the six towers in the next 30 days.
“We are working to complete the remaining 12 residential towers in the next six months. In towers A, B, C and D everything is ready and we will be submitting the remaining land dues in the next two to three days to get OC. Pending work on one lift each in the two other towers – R and S – is in full swing. The six towers will be completed in the next one month,” said Rajiv Gupta, the project’s deputy general manager (sales and marketing).
Town planner Gaur said the inspections will continue until all projects against which buyers have complaints are covered. “We will decide on Wednesday morning which project the team will visit that day. We have formed two teams. On Tuesday, only one team went for an inspection,” he said.
