The Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) on Wednesday said it has cancelled building plans (maps) of 17 group housing projects owned by Jaypee Infratech, Gaursons, Orris Group, VGA Developers and Ajnara Group.
Out of the 17 group housing projects, 12 belong to Jaypee Infratech, two are of Gaursons and one each is owned by Ajnara, Orris and VGA Developers.
Projects of Jaypee Infratech are located in Sector 19, 25 and 22B along the Yamuna Expressway.
The move is likely to affect hundreds of home buyers who have made investments in these projects.
On April 15, the Yamuna Expressway Authority had also cancelled five housing projects of Jaypee Infratech in Sports City East as the developer had allegedly sold properties without getting building plans approved.
“We have cancelled the building maps of 12 more housing projects that belong to Jaypee Infratech, Gaursons, Orris Group, VGA Developers and Ajnara as they had not got the map approved within specific time. The builders have also sold out flats to home buyers without getting requisite approvals,” said chief executive officer of YEIDA Arun Vir Singh.
Two projects of Gaursons in Sector 19 are spread over 87,756 square metres and 215 square metres land in its Yamuna City mega township proposed on 250 acre land along the Yamuna Expressway.
VGA Developers has 20,071 square metre land in Sector 25, Orris Group has 8,19,105 square metre land in Sector 22D and Ajnara has 85,391 square metre land in Sector 22A.
“The developers had submitted maps in 2015-16 and the Authority raised objections on it. Without clearing the objections, the developers kept selling flats. I have issued notices to the developers asking them to submit details of flats sold and money collected from the investors,” the CEO said.
Managing director, Gaursons, Manoj Gaur said, “Our maps were sanctioned on July 27, 2016 and we have carried out construction according to the map. YEIDA had raised objections over the maps on September 15, 2016, which could not be resolved due to holidays at the Authority’s office. We will get objections resolved soon. Construction on a 25-storey tower is underway.”
The representatives of Jaypee, Ajnara, Orris and VGA Developers were not available for comments.
