Residents of the upscale society Skytech Matrott in Sector 76, Noida, took out a peace march today against the builder over issues of delayed registration and shoddy quality of service.
The residents allege that the builder has not maintained transparency in the registration process, and that they feel cheated. The builder has also not obtained occupancy certificates from Noida Authority, without which the registration of flats cannot be completed.
Dr Gurpreet Singh, a resident, complained to City Spidey that at a time when new homebuyers are doing all they can to avoid the increased rate of stamp duty, Skytech Matrott’s residents have been forced to sit and watch. He further adds the increased rate of 7 per cent — from the existing 5 per cent — will lead residents to bear Rs 2-3 lakh extra for registration.
Singh, Sandeep Jindal, Mukul Kshetrapal, Anil Kumar, DC Sharma, Arvid Singh, Ankur Saneghal, Vikash Chauhan, Kapil Rastogi, Sanjay Singh and Pallaw Rai, along with hundreds of other residents, including women, children and senior citizens, went on the march.
Furthermore, Pallav Rai, another resident, told City Spidey that the builder collected high maintenance charges from the residents but provided poor-quality services. He claimed the builder had still not allotted them parking spots.
Sanjay Singh, a resident, said the 400 families residing in the apartment collectively contributed about Rs 35 lakh as maintenance charges to the builder. But there’s hardly any maintenance to speak of — the society does not have any power back-up and the lifts frequently stop working.
Mayank Chawla, the director of Skytech, refuted the allegations against him.
