Homebuyers of the Pan Oasis residential society in Sector 70 protested against the builder over an alleged seven-year delay in giving possession of flats. Residents also joined in the protest over lack of proper amenities.

Members of Poorwa, a residents’ association of Pan Oasis, staged a hunger strike alleging that the builders of Pan Oasis have been continuously delaying possession and making empty promises.

Pan Oasis residential complex consists of 18 towers, with around 2,000 buyers. However, only 350 of them have been given possession of flats, that too in the first four towers of the proposed 18.

Homebuyers allege that they have not been given possession of flats and are facing further delay.

“We booked the flats in 2009 and till date, possession has not been given. The builders’ group has been delaying possession time and again despite having promised it in within three years. We have complained to the Noida authority in the past but it had no effect on the builders. Today, we have decided to go on a hunger strike to mark our protest,” Ashish Rao, a resident, said.

Buyers allege that the builders have completed only 11 of the proposed 18 towers. They said that only six of the 11 towers have received certificate from the Noida authority.

Residents complained of negligence and poor management of the complex.

“Only 6 towers have received no-objection certificate from the authority. The builder had promised us amenities such as a swimming pool, club, play area, parking spot and park but none of these have been completed. However, they already collected charges for such amenities in advance but none of them have been delivered,” Kapil, another resident, said.

PAN realty group has refuted the allegations levelled against them and said that the builders’ group has provided residents basic necessities such as 24-hour electricity supply and water.

“We have completed 11 towers of the 18. Soon, the remaining towers will also be completed and possession will be given to buyers in shifts. We have provided manual security around the complex, CCTV surveillance, electricity and water on 24-hour basis,” Rajeev Gupta, deputy general manager of PAN group, said.
