“We gathered at the Wish Town office so that the stakeholders can collaborate to assist us in delivering our units. We demand that Yeida (Yamuna Expressway industrial development authority) make decisions to expedite the project work. Following our meeting with chief minister Yogi Adityanath on September 13, we received a response from his office in which they instructed Yeida to take appropriate action. We hope that the construction will be accelerated so that we can get our homes,” said Ashish Mohan Gupta, president of the JIL real estate allottees welfare society, which organised the gathering.

Homebuyers also sought better communication between them and the monitoring committee that oversees the construction work. “In the last six months, we have received very little proper communication about the progress of our project. We demand that proper communication about each step be established, as we have a right to know what is going on,” said Ishwar Kewalramani, another buyer and vice-president of the association.

The National Company Law Tribunal approved the Suraksha Group’s resolution plan to acquire Jaypee Infratech Limited on March 7, 2023. Following that, Yeida filed an appeal in the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal, demanding that the new developer, Suraksha, pay 1,600 crore in additional compensation to farmers for the land on which these projects are being built. On September 13, Yeida approved the Suraksha resolution plan and forwarded it to the Uttar Pradesh government for approval.

Yeida said that they will take further action once the state government sends their approvals.

“Since we have approved the Suraksha plan, let the state government decide. Once approval is obtained, there will be further progress concerning Suraksha’s acquisition of Jaypee Infratech Limited. We are taking all necessary steps to resolve the homebuyers’ concerns and ensure they receive their apartments as soon as possible. We have also decided to protect the interests of the farmers who gave their land for the projects,” said Arun Vir Singh, Yeida’s chief executive officer.

Suraksha Group declined to comment on the matter until the state government approves their proposal.

“We will comment after we receive written approval and the conditions under which our plan has been approved,” said a spokesperson for the Suraksha Group.
