Gurugram: Residents of Emaar Gurgaon Greens in Sector 102 filed a complaint at the CM Window on Saturday alleging several infrastructural discrepancies in their society and financial regularities by the builder.
They demanded an inquiry by the economic offence wing against the builder and have requested Chief Minister Mahender Singh Khattar to order a structural and forensic audit of the society.
In their complaint, the residents alleged that the builder had used very low-quality material in the construction jeopardising their lives.
Over 100 families were living in fear for their safety.
Nitin Nanda, a resident of the society, said, "Whenever we do any sort of civil work in our apartment, the plaster on the wall comes off. Bathroom tiles are also of substandard. Kitchen balconies between the adjoining units are too close posing a security threat. When we complain, they refuse to address it."
The project was launched in the year 2012 with a promise to give possession by June 2015. However, the builder started giving possession only from November 2018.
Sandeep Fogat, a resident and complainant, said, "The builder is not paying compensation for delayed possession as per our Builder-Buyers Agreement and those who got, the compensation was not adequate as per Haryana Real Estate Regulatory Authority (HRERA) Regulations. The builder is also not giving the benefits of input tax credit to eligible owners."
The residents claimed that they complained to the developer several times. However, he/she was not ready to listen to their grievances.
In September last year, the residents of the society staged a protest demonstration against the builder and gave a memorandum to Deputy Commissioner, HRERA Chairman, Department of Town and Country Planning (DTCP), DG TCP against the builder, but nothing has been done so far. After they got no response, they approached the CM to resolve their problems.
They complained that the clubhouse was occupied by the builder's sales team, parking allocation was done in an unfair manner, lack of security guards, poor upkeep of society, dysfunctional CCTV and lack of fencing on the boundary wall.
They also alleged that the builder was levying high maintenance charges compared to other posh societies in the area. The builder failed to provide any facility, why then was he charging such high maintenance, asks Fogat. "Owners were forced to pay Common Area Maintenance (CAM) charges of two years advance while taking the possession,” he pointed out.
