Logix Infrastructure Private Limited, a Noida-based realty firm, has sent notices to four of its flat owners warning them that if they lodge “false complaints against the Blossom County housing complex,” then they will have to take responsibility for any delay in the completion of the project.
Logix Group launched Blossom County in Sector 137 comprising 17 residential towers, in 2010. The project, spread over 25 acres along the Noida expressway, has 2, 3 and 4 BHK flats and penthouses. The builder has completed Phase I of the project and these four flat owners have moved into their flats. However, Phase II of the project, that was supposed to be delivered in 2012, is yet to be completed.
Shakti Nath, CMD, Logix Group, said, “I issued notices to four flat owners because they have lodged complaints with the Noida authority and are also filing cases before the Allahabad high court with the intention to demand undue favours. These four are involved in extortion. If they have taken possession and are living a good life then why should they put hurdles in the second phase,affecting other buyers who have not taken possession?” The builder also lodged an FIR against the four owners alleging that they are in the habit of lodging false complaints. The builder also accused the four of taking free car parking and club membership worth Rs. 3 lakh and a waiver on increased flat size charges.
“The four flat owners have filed false objections only to extort financial and other benefits. After accepting benefits, they withdrew complaints and court cases. I want them not to damage our reputation and create hurdles in my next projects when they have already got their flats,” Nath said.
The four flat owners said the builder’s notice is illegal because he cannot snatch an individual’s right to protest. “We are unable to execute the registry of our flats because Logix is a defaulter of the Noida authority. The builder is making false allegations in the FIR. And the builder has also sent notices to our office. How can he muffle our voices? We have every right under our Constitution to protest, complain and file court cases if required. We will reply to the builder’s notices legally. We are not afraid of the builder,” said one of the four who was served the notice.
