The Noida authority on Tuesday issued notices to 22 builders for failing to submit a detailed plan to resolve grievances of homebuyers in 24 housing projects. The authority notices came after it found out that these builders have not acted on the decisions reached at the tripartite meetings.
The Noida authority, since April 10, has been holding meetings with builders and buyers to seek solutions to the issues faced by homebuyers. Most buyers have complained of non-delivery of flats and lack of civic amenities in the projects where they have moved in.
“We have had a total of 41 project meetings with an aim to address homebuyers’ issues in each housing project. Now, after the first phase of meetings is over, we conducted an assessment of the minutes of the meeting held with each builder. We have found out 24 builders are yet to submit a detailed plan to address issues faced by the homebuyers,” said Santosh Kumar, officer on special duty, Noida authority.
The 22 builders who were issued notices are Unitech Limited for its three residential projects, SDS Infratech Private Limited, Laureate Buildwell, Antriksh Group, Colourful Estate, Supertech Limited, Assotech Limited, Orion Infrabuild, Sunshine Infrawell, Skytech Construction, Pebbles Prolease, Three Platinum Softech, Red Fort Jahangir Properties, Cloud 9 Project, Divine India Infrastructure, Logix Infratech, Gardenia India, Futec Shelters, Ajnara India, MPG Realty, Today Homes Noida and Kindle Infraheight.
“We have received tower-wise delivery schedule plan and a roadmap for solutions to the other issues from 17 housing projects. But builders of 24 projects have not submitted any plan to address homebuyers’ issues. We have asked them to submit their plan at the earliest. If they fail to do so, we will be free to take legal action,” Kumar said.
Some projects have issues of delay in delivery, while in some housing societies, buyers are failing to execute flat registry and some builders are unable to develop common facilities.
Homebuyers claimed that they have to deal with late delivery of flats, poor construction quality, deviation from sanctioned layout map, hefty maintenance charges, unreasonable charges and bouncers hired by builders who allegedly misbehave with buyers.
Thousands of homebuyers have alleged that they have been cheated by builders who have failed to deliver projects citing a dip in sales amid a slowdown in the realty sector.
“The authority should take strict action against errant builders. Many builders are not taking meetings seriously and the time invested in these meetings seems to be futile. It is high time that the authority takes legal action to ensure builders deliver,” said Vivek Kumar, a buyer.
