The Noida authority on Wednesday directed Unnati Fortune Group to address homebuyers’ issues in its Sector 119 project, ‘The Aranya’, as soon as possible.
The authority direction came in a meeting of homebuyers, the developer and authority officials at Indira Gandhi Kala Kendra in Sector 6. The authority’s additional chief executive officer (ACEO) Shishir Singh, officer on special duty (OSD) Santosh Kumar and planning department officials were present in the meeting.
The authority started an initiative from April 12 under which it calls homebuyers and developers to address homebuyers’ issues in various projects. On Wednesday, the authority called Unnati Fortune Group that has proposed to build 2,300 housing units with 2BHK, 3BHK and 4BHK apartments. The 13-tower housing project is proposed along the Faridabad-Noida-Ghaziabad (FNG) Expressway.
Homebuyers alleged that the builder failed to deliver flats on time and did not properly address their issues related to amenities.
“I had booked a flat in Aranya in 2012 with a promise of delivery within three years. But even after a delay of two years, the builder is yet to finish the project. I also demand that the authority examine the funds collected from homebuyers and the construction quality of this project,” said Sunil Kumar, a homebuyer.
Homebuyers alleged that the developer kept increasing the floor area ratio from time to time, thereby delaying the project.
“We have asked the authority to ensure that the builder doesn’t take us for a ride anymore and fulfills the promises made in the meeting. If it doesn’t fulfill them, we will intensify our protests,” said Rajiv Kumar, another buyer.
The ACEO directed the authority staff to conduct a site inspection to check the construction quality of the project and examine its funds.
“Our staff will ensure that homebuyers’ issues are resolved soon,” said ACEO Singh.
The Unnati Group said they will deliver the project within six months.
“Our project was a little delayed because of the National Green Tribunal (NGT) ban on construction in 2015. But we will deliver 1,300 flats in six months and the remaining flats too will be delivered very soon. Civil work on our project is completed and we will soon do the finishing work to offering possession to homebuyers,” said Anil Mithas, chairman and managing director, Unnati Group.
