The Noida authority has decided to issue a public notice in newspapers before conducting an on-site inspection of a housing project.
The move comes after homebuyers alleged that the planning team inspects housing projects when they are unavailable at the site to inform officials about irregularities.
Inspections started from April 10, when the authority started holding tripartite meetings with buyers and builders. A planning team visits the site to look into allegations made by homebuyers in the meetings and then sends a report to the chief executive officer of the authority.
“We will release an advertisement in leading newspapers so that the homebuyers can be available at the site to inform officials about the anomalies. We are doing this so that homebuyers do not allege that they were not informed,” said Praveen Shrivastava, chief architect and town planner of the Noida authority.
Homebuyers alleged that most developers have violated sanctioned building layout plans and constructed structures on land meant for green area. Also, many developers have not developed common facilities such as club, park, parking lot, fire safety system, lifts, pool and roads.
“We can point officials to the right spots to highlight problems such as lack of common facility or poor construction quality during an inspection. It is just an eyewash without buyers’ presence,” Rajesh Purohit, a homebuyer in Sector 107 said.
Shrivastava said, “We have made it clear that we will not issue an occupancy certificate if common facilities are not in place.”
Homebuyers in Amrapali Silicon City in Sector 76 on Tuesday met the chief architect and town planner seeking an inspection. “We will accompany them at the site and highlight every anomaly on paper in black and white so that we can find the solution,” said Amrita Singh, a buyer in Silicon City.
