Haryana CM takes private builders to task
At the Monthly Grievances Committee meeting in Gurgaon on Sunday, September 4, Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar gave directions against private developers in the city. Of the 23 complaints homebuyers put before the committee, most were resolved.
The chief minister ordered an enquiry into the handing over of maintenance in Ambience Lagoon, Sector 24, from the builder to the RWA. He appointed a three-member committee, headed by Dr D Suresh, divisional commissioner, for carry out the enquiry. SN Vashist, chief administrative coordinator, and Sandeep Khirwar, commissioner of police, are the two other committee members.
Residents of Ambience Lagoon alleged that the builder was not handing over maintenance of the society to the RWA. However, there are two resident bodies claiming to be the legitimate RWA of the society, and the builder says it is willing to hand over maintenance to the RWA, but neither of the two RWAs is ready to take it up.
There were also a number of complaints in which homebuyers said they deposited about 95 per cent of the flat price, but were waiting for possession even after eight or nine years.
Regarding the case of Unitech Vistas in Sector 70, Khattar said the government was trying to provide relief to homebuyers. Officials informed him that Unitech had 244 subsidiary companies and that it had been issued licences for about 1,100 acres of land in Gurgaon. Unitech has submitted a revival plan for its projects, which is being reviewed by the department.
Similarly, on complaints pertaining to the Emaar MGF Business Centre in Sector 28 and the Emerald Hills township projects in Sector 65, Emaar, the Dubai-based company, was directed to take up projects from its partner MGF and restart construction.
The case of Orchid lsland, at Mayfield Garden, Sector 51, was handed over to Yashpal Yadav, HUDA administrator, for further enquiry. There were allegations that the builder had shown more area in the sale deed than that shown in the occupation certificate issued to homebuyers.
