The stamps and registration department on Friday filed an FIR against 16 builders for allowing possession of flats in 24 housing projects without paying stamp duty to the government. The FIRs have been filed across police stations in Noida and Greater Noida.
The FIRs were ordered to be registered by the assistant inspector general (AIG), Noida, SK Singh, and AIG, Greater Noida, AK Dubey. The FIRs were filed against builders for handing over newly constructed flats to buyers without obtaining an occupancy certificate and executing registry.
Rakesh Kashyap, district information officer, Gautam Budh Nagar, said, “The two AIGs have ordered filing of FIRs against these builders.”
After a physical verification of the premises of 24 group housing societies, it was found that properties in 24 projects were found under possession of homebuyers without payment of stamp duty to the government.

On Wednesday, district magistrate BN Singh asked deputy registrars 1, 2 and 3 and Sadar to identify all such flats and builders to take legal action against them.
Singh had asked the stamp and registration department to take action under Section 17 of Registration Act, 1908, and Section 13 of the UP Apartment (promotion of construction ownership and maintenance) Act, 2010. Both acts stipulate that a builder cannot allow possession or transfer of ownership rights without executing the registration of the flat.
