Residents of Close South Apartment in Gurgaon takes builder to court, writes letter to PM
High-rises are seamlessly integrated in Gurgaon, but the residents face some huge problems with the builders of such high-rises. Most of the big builders do not deliver the properties on time apart from bringing in a lot of changes in the construction of the building, without notifying the owners. In a recent incident, a letter by the President of the Close South Apartment owners Association was written to the Prime Minister regarding their problems with the builder (Unitech).

The President of Progressive Gurgaon Forum, Raman Sharma, in his statement said, ''No one can talk about the matter as the case is under sub judice. But everything has been mentioned in the letter. Also, this is not the case with this builder, around 18 per cent of the builders violates their own contracts.''

The letter states, 'The Complex currently houses over 400 families with over 1000 children. The concerned project has been delayed by the Builder (Unitech) by almost seven years and is still far from complete. We have raised numerous communications with them to this respect but see no respite.'

Writing on behalf of the Close South Apartment residents, the President Sachin Gupta further states, 'The builder is working in the contravention of the approved plan as sanctioned by your office. The plan clearly shows that the complex was Towers 4-19 (with the exception of Tower 13) but the Builder is adamant to build Tower 1, Tower 2 and Tower 3 as well inside the Complex. This complex has severe health hazards, environmental issues and norms are violated as well. The Builder rather than fixing those is forcefully building unsanctioned Towers, they when challenged, stated that as per the law of the land, it is compoundable and could be built by paying penalties. It is our understanding that such type of construction is not allowed nor is compoundable and Apex Court has also passed strictures on the same.'

Apart from that, he also points out various other problems such as the solar system not working properly, the inadequate fire equipment and the rest. Raman Sharma, who looks after such problems in the millennium city said that they will not let the matter rest and would take it up with the Supreme Court. The court has issued a stay on the construction for the time being.
