More than 25 aggrieved homebuyers protested against Mahagun Builders in Noida on Saturday, alleging delay in handover of flats. The protest went on for half the day and was held in front of the builder group’s office in Noida Sector 63.
The homebuyers alleged that they had started buying two-BHK flats in the proposed MahagunPuram society in Noida Phase-2 in 2011 as they were promised to get possession of flats from 2014. The society was proposed to have four towers with over 700 flats in total.
“I bought a flat in 2011 by paying Rs40 lakh, the majority of the cost of a two-BHK flat. Today, I have paid 100% of the flat cost, yet I am being denied my flat even in 2017. I have to live in a rented flat in Noida,” said Nagendra Singh, a homebuyer from Allahabad.
Buyers alleged that this is the first time that they are have protested against the builder’s group over the building.
“We held a series of meetings with them in the past to convince them to give possession on time. After much deliberation, they promised to deliver possession of at least one tower, of the four, by June 30. However, they have failed to do so and our patience is wearing out,” said Navin Tomar, a buyer from Delhi.
However, officials of the Mahagun Group said that the construction work of their project is complete and it is a legal complexity that is holding them back from giving possession to buyers.
“Construction of the project is complete but we are awaiting a completion certificate from the authority. We request the customers to support us in our endeavour. Thousands of customers living in our projects is a testament to our quality and delivery,” Sunil Mittal, assistant vice-president of CRM Mahagun Group, said.
