CM Khattar to lend an ear to Gurgaon homebuyers’ plight on May 8
GURGAON: Concerned about the increasing number of complaints against developers, chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar will be in the city next week to hear the grievances of homebuyers.
Officials told ETRealty (TOI) on Thursday that Khattar will preside over the monthly meeting of the district grievance committee in the city on May 8 for the second time in a row. The main agenda of the meeting is the homebuyers’ complaints against AN Buildwell related to delay in giving possession in its housing project in Sector 103.
“Several complaints were received against AN Buildwell and now the CM will review the matter. We had issued a show-cause notice to the developer on May 2 on the basis of complaints received from homebuyers,” an official of department of town and country planning (DTCP) said.
“An audit is already on to ascertain the money collected by the developer from allottees and the amount spent on the development work in the Sector 103 project. The licence of the developer will not be renewed till it submits an affidavit that it has not diverted the funds to other projects,” he added.
One of the investors in the Sector 103 project, Anil Kumar, alleged that despite making most of the payment they are still waiting for the possession of their flats. “We had booked our flats in September 2011 and expected to get possession in October 2015. But the project is far from completion,” he said.
“Some 550 people are suffering because of the developer. We hope the CM will take appropriate action against the builder,” he added.
Despite repeated attempts, AN Buildwell could not be reached for a comment.
In fact, this will be the second time when complaints against developers will be the highlight of the monthly meeting of the district grievance committee.
In the last meeting held on April 10, the CM had ordered setting up of a committee under the deputy commissioner to take stock of all assets and liabilities of Unitech within the country and abroad after homebuyers complained the realty major was not honouring its commitments and delaying projects, despite collecting 90% of the payment.
Sources said the committee is likely to submit the status report in Unitech case in next week’s meeting. Khattar will also take up the issue of an unauthorised colony and commercial shops on Inchapuri Road and encroachments by street venders on Genpact-Paras Road, officials said.
