Around 200 homebuyers on Saturday protested against realty firm 3C for alleged delay in completion of a residential project.
The homebuyers, who protested outside the Sector 127 office of the builder, also alleged that the realtor changed the building layout plan to charge extra money from them.
The protesters said they have booked flats in 3C Lotus Boulevard Espacia project in Sector 100. They alleged that the structures of the residential towers are ready but the realtor is not completing interior and electrical works.
“I booked a flat in 2010 and the builder was supposed to deliver it in 2013. But now they want to charge extra money from all buyers on the ground that the size of the flat has been increased. Why did the builder change the layout plan arbitrarily? The builder had promised to compensation for any delay in handover of the possession but now they are not paying it,” said Vijay Kumar, a buyer.
Noida authority chief executive officer Rama Raman held a meeting with representatives of 3C Developers on May 6 and directed them to address the grievances of the buyers. The developer had told the authority that work of all six residential towers has been delayed due to environmental clearances mandated by the National Green Tribunal.
Spokesperson of 3C Developer did not reply to repeated calls and SMSes.
In another incident, around 150 homebuyers of Jaypee Greens Sports City The Kove protested against the builder at the site of the project in Sector 128. The buyers said they got agitated when the staff of Jaypee Group allegedly pushed them when they tried to enter the realtor’s office to enquire the status of the project. The homebuyers left only when the builder promised that the work on the project will restart in July, 2016.
“Founder of Jaypee Group Jaiprakash Gaur gave us two options— either take your money back without interest or wait for the construction to restart. Why should we accept refund without interest?,” said Pawan Verma, a buyer.
Ajit Kumar, Jaypee Group’s adviser for the realty sector, said, “There was no protest by buyers. They met chairman Jaiprakash Gaur. Our security staff had to push because two groups of buyers wanted to meet the chairman at the same time. Our project got delayed due to many reasons, including farmers’ protests and slowdown in the market. We have promised to complete the work as soon as possible.”
