Noida: FONAA, buyers' protest turned into mayhem at project exhibition

Noida: The members of Federation of Noida and Greater Noida Apartment Owners Association (FONAA) and flat owners of many societies on Sunday protested at a project exhibition by several builders in Gautam Budh Nagar. They protested against prevalent issues in many projects in Noida and Greater Noida.

The protesters decided to inform the new buyers about the incomplete projects, pending registry of flats, bad quality of construction, lack of basic facilities etc.

As they began protesting, it turned out to be a mayhem. The builders called their bouncers who started misbehaving with the protesters. The incident happened around 1.45 pm at Bhutani Alphathum in Sector 90, Noida.

Talking to CitySpidey, President of FONAA, Sandeep Singh Chauhan said, “We went to the relocated venue just to educate  the new buyers about how the builders are cheating lakhs of buyers. Instead of letting us speak, the builders called their bouncers. The bouncers started having scuffle with us. They abused us and snatched phones of some of the protesters.”

President of Amrapali Zodiac Social Welfare Association (AZSPA), Joginder Singh, who was present during the protest, said, “ Initially the exhibition was going to happen at Radisson Blu Hotel in Sector 18, Noida. The builder relocated the venue to Bhutani Alphathum in  Sector 90, Noida. They relocated the location as they were aware that we were going to raise our issues in front of the new buyers.”

“We went to the relocated location to tell the new buyers that they shouldn’t be purchasing a property from these builders as they have not done the registry of lakhs of home buyers in Gautam Budh Nagar. The builder didn’t let us speak and started misbehaving,” he said.

Another protester, Amarbir Singh, who is a resident of Mahagun Moderne in Sector 78, said, “Registry of flats is still pending in several projects but the builders are organising an exhibition to sell the properties to new buyers. Society handover is also pending at societies. Why the government is not taking action and letting them sell new flats? About 400 registeries are still pending at my society.”
