The Noida authority has decided to issue notices to builders who have failed to fulfil promises made to buyers in tripartite meetings. The authority is examining each builder’s tower-wise delivery schedule.
In total, 36 builder-buyer-official meetings have taken place since May 10. However, homebuyers said there is no solution emerging from these meetings.
“Of the 36 projects, pertaining which meetings have taken place, builders have submitted the tower-wise delivery schedule of 34 projects. We are examining the schedule submitted to us. Apart from this, in each meeting, the additional chief executive officer also gave some instructions to builders to address buyers’ issues. We are examining whether the builder has implemented those instructions,” Praveen Shrivastava, chief architect and town planner of the Noida authority, said.
Following instructions of Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath, the authority began calling builders, homebuyers and officials concerned for the meetings to address issues faced by the developers in finishing the projects. In each meeting, the authority directed builders to submit a written delivery schedule of flats.
“We are evaluating each realty project, the delivery schedule plan and also listing the violations. It means if the builder is not taking authority’s instructions seriously and not addressing homebuyers’ issues, we will make a list of the same and later issue notices to those who have committed violations,” said Santosh Kumar, officer on special duty (OSD), Noida authority.
Homebuyers, however, are not satisfied with the meetings. “Builders are not taking these meetings seriously. My realtor made a promise to resume construction at the site following the meeting. I had on April 27 met the UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. He assured me of action and the authority officials also assured me of help, but there seems to be no development. Now we will meet the Union minister for urban development, housing and urban poverty alleviation, M Venkaiah Naidu, for help,” said Mitroo Krishan, a homebuyer.
Noida’s officer on special duty said, “Buyers should have patience because we are working to resolve their issues. It takes a while to reach a solution.”
