Noida: Buying an apartment is an investment of a lifetime. However, many highrise societies that have come up in the last seven to eight years are beset with a consistent problem of basic amenities. Struggling with similar issues, the residents of Logix Blossom Zest, a residential society in Sector 143, Noida approached the Uttar Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority (UP RERA) to share their grievances.
Anil Kaushal and Vinod Sharma, President and General Secretary of Blossom Zest Flat Buyers Welfare Association on Wednesday met RERA Chairman Rajive Kumar regarding alleged stalled project Blossom Zest being built by Logix builder.
According to the residents, the project started 10 years ago & is still 70 per cent incomplete. The letter which was submitted to RERA by the Blossom Zest Flat Buyers Welfare Association mentioned, “As per RTI information, the builder owes land dues of Rs 290 crores to Noida Authority against this Blossom Zest Project.”
“As per builder-buyer agreement, possession of flats was to be given in the year 2013. Now in 2021, the builder has only been able to obtain completion certificates of five towers out of fourteen towers and that too without basic amenities like club house, recreation area and permanent electricity connection. Builder is even unable to handover all flats of these five towers whose completion certificate has been obtained,” said Anil Kaushal, a buyer of Logix Blossom Zest.

“The apartment owners who have got an offer of possession from the builder and got NOC against full payment are struggling to get physical possession of their flats as the builder is unable to do even finishing works inside flats,” said Vinod Sharma, a resident of Logix Blossom Zest.
He also added, “This project has been stalled by the builder for the past 7 years which was also certified in a site inspection report prepared by RERA. The delay of this project is not related to Covid-19 pandemic in any way. This project was stalled for 5 years before the Covid pandemic.”
As per the residents, the RERA Chairman assured them that necessary actions will be taken and a notice will be sent to the builder soon.
