Homebuyers of PAN Oasis group housing complex in Sector 70, Noida on Monday said they have decided to approach the court as the developer has failed to provide ‘promised’ facilities in the project.

Developers Patel Group, Amrapali Group and Nirala Developers are building PAN Oasis, an 18-tower project with 2,000 flats. In 2009, the developers had promised to hand over the flats to buyers by 2012.

“After detailed discussions, we have decided to explore legal options available to us. We are forced to go to court because the Noida authority is not making sure that the developers deliver what they promised,” Sunny Longani, a buyer, said.

The authority was completing the process to issue occupation certificate (OC) for six towers. But buyers objected to the move on the ground that the developer has not completed basic amenities before obtaining the OC.

According to buyers, the developer has not completed many facilities such as park, pool, parking, lifts, club and drainage system.

“The basement meant for parking is waterlogged. A club and park is still under construction. The developer has altered building layout without our consent. The commercial area is increased from 506.85 sqm to 2055 sqm. The balcony size is also changed,” Sukumar Das, another buyer, said.

“At the July 27 meeting, attended by developers, buyers and the Noida authority officials, we said we will go to the court if the authority does not ensure that the developer completes all facilities. The authority did not seem serious to address our grievances. So we will file a court case as advised by our lawyer,” Longani said.

The developer said most facilities are completed.

“Parking facility and park are ready. Club and pool will be ready soon. We have made changes in the layout following procedures. We are giving possession of six towers. Once all towers are ready, all facilities will be in place,” said Rajiv Gupta, the project’s deputy general manager.

SC Gaur, chief architect and town planner of the Noida authority, said, “I agree some work is still to be done by the developer. As of now, we will issue OC for six towers. Change in the layout in these six towers is below 10%, which can be compounded after levying certain amount of penalty on the developer. Before issuing OC for 18 towers, we will see what changes the developer has made. We will take action accordingly.”
