Greater Noida: For many, buying a home at high rise is a lifetime investment and thus, they expect to get what they pay for. Sanjeev Shukla, a resident booked his flat in Fusion Homes in the year 2014. According to him, the builder was supposed to hand over his flat in the year 2017 but they weren't able to do that due to some reasons.
“In the year 2018, they started giving possession in towers A, B, C and D. The builder has delayed all the basic amenities like parking facilities, kids areas. They finally made a club. They started charging Rs 750 plus GST. We opposed these charges as it was not an exorbitant amount. We checked in different societies and found that a maximum of Rs 500 was asked from the residents for the clubhouse. Even though the clubhouse was not part of the common area property but part of the builder's property, still the builder made the charges compulsory for all,” said Sanjeev Shukla.
“We mailed the builder about this. We held a meeting with people who look after the management service of the clubhouse. They didn't give us any straightforward answer, just gave us a 20 per cent discount. From the day I started living, there have been many disputes with the builder,” he said.
Most of the residents of Fusion Homes Apartments have a similar story for which they approached the Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum in Gautam Budh Nagar. According to the residents, the forum has already sent a notice to the builder asking him to file a written version in answer to the allegation made in the complaint along with the affidavit of evidence in support of the written statement within 1 month, that is by September 16, 2021.
As per the residents, they are hopeful that there will be some positive outcome with the intervention of the forum. CitySpidey talked to the Senior Manager of Fusion Buildtech Private Limited, Manish Gupta to know their stand on the residents' issues. Gupta said that he has not received the notice and he will react once he gets the notice.
On the other hand, residents' lawyer Pradeep Tyagi said, “The notice has been sent to the office of the builder by speed post.”
The complaint mentioned various allegations against the builder like using poor and low-quality components in constructing common areas like lifts, stairs, and many more. Also at the time of physical possession, the construction work was still incomplete.
