A group of residents from Supertech Cape Town housing complex in Sector 74 and Emerald society in Sector 93B on Wednesday raised issues they have been facing at a tripartite meeting held in Indira Gandhi Kala Kendra in Sector 6.

The Noida authority additional chief executive officer Shishir Singh, officer on special duty Santosh Kumar and director from Supertech Group GL Khera was also present at the meeting to address issues of residents.

The authority has started organising meetings of homebuyers and builder to resolve outstanding issues.

Residents of Cape Town said the builder is overcharging for maintenance and has also not provided adequate parking spaces.

“Instead of taking Rs2.25 per square feet as maintenance fee, the Supertech group is charing Rs2.5 per square feet from residents. The builder is also overcharging for electricity and water supply. The builder has not imposed any uniform labour cess on residents,” said Rajiv Ranjan, a resident.

Residents also alleged that the builder has violated sanctioned building layout map.

“The builder has provided parking in an open space instead of a facility in the basement as promised. Apart from that, the builder has not adhered to the sanctioned building layout map,” said Arun Sharma, another resident.

Singh asked the planning department to look into the issues raised by residents.

“We have already started charging a maintenance fee of Rs2.25 per square feet from residents from October 2016. We have built the project in accordance with the map sanctioned by the Noida authority. We are always ready to resolve any issues faced by residents,” Khera said.

Residents of Emerald society said there were many issues such as parking problems, lack of adequate fire safety measures and dysfunctional rainwater harvesting system in the society.

“The builder should also hand over the maintenance of the society as per the laid down rules,” said Gaurav Chopra, a resident of Emerald society.

“We delivered Emerald nine years ago. Now the maintenance is being looked after by the residents’ welfare association. As per the rules, the RWA should take care of the maintenance and provide better facilities to residents. We have delivered Cape Town and Emerald projects on time, unlike other builders. We are ready to address any issue of residents,” said RK Arora, CMD, Supertech group.

“We have asked the builder to provide written replies to all issues raised by residents,” the ACEO said.
