Residents of Grand Omaxe society in Sector 93B demanded that the Noida authority takes stern action against the realtor, Omaxe Buildhome Limited, for not handing over the maintenance and transferring maintenance money to the newly elected apartment owners association (AOA).
The Grand Omaxe project, which consists of 1,320 flats in 22 towers, was launched in 2008. Residents shifted to the project from 2011. At present, there are around 5,000 residents in the society.
They have written to the Noida authority additional chief executive officer (ACEO) Shishir Singh, seeking his intervention in the matter. Residents met the ACEO on May 5 and sought the authority’s help on several issues that they have been faced with for a long time.
“I have directed the group housing department to look into these issues and call the builder to address issues faced by the residents,” the ACEO said.
According to the complaint submitted by the residents to the ACEO, Omaxe Buildhome Limited is not transferring around Rs40 lakh, for electricity and water bills payable in the month of April, to the AOA.
“Other issues that the realtor is not solving are related to maintenance of lifts and also funds of R12 crore, which the builder is not transferring to the AOA. We demand that the builder transfers the funds, at least in instalments, because it is crucial for the maintenance of the society,” said PVS Prakash, secretary, AOA, Grand Omaxe.
Manish Gupta, executive member of the AOA, said,“The developer is not handing over the maintenance of lift, water or electricity. This will cause multiple issues in the future.”
Homebuyers said that they are also unable to get the registration of around 300 units done as the realtor is not clearing the Rs200 crore land due, for the authority to issue an occupancy certificate.
“The developer is exercising total has been harassing us for many years now. I hope the Noida authority will settle our issues soon,” said Prakash.
Abhishek Anand, a public relations officer with Omaxe, said, “I do not think there is any issue in the Grand Omaxe project at all. The Noida authority has not yet called us for a meeting.”
On January 22, 2017, the authority successfully conducted elections for the AOA following a September 2016 high court order in this regard. However, the maintenance of the housing complex is not being transferred, residents said.
“We have started taking care of security on our own. But until Omaxe transfers the maintenance officially, residents will continue to suffer,” said Prakash.
