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).
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.''
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
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.
