GreNo West: Resident await possession of flat for 10 years

Greater Noida: For some people, purchasing a home is a lifetime venture and in this manner, they hope to get what they pay for. Sameer Bharadwaj lived in Supertech EcoVillage 1, Greater Noida on rent for almost more than 3 years. Bharadwaj booked his flat in 2010 in EcoVillage 1 in tower C6 but he hasn't taken possession of his flat yet.

Late possession and the issue of the pending registry are very common in the societies of Noida and Greater Noida. Bhardwaj said, “I booked my flat in the year 2010 and the builder promised us that we will get he possession in 2013, I took a loan from the LIC housing finance. In the year 2013, the tower was not completed by the builder, then he  promised us to give the possession in the year 2015, but there has been no improvement and now it is 2021, I still have not got the possession of my flat.”

Bhardwaj shared that he still lived as a tenant for the 3 years in the society in tower C4, before there he lived in Delhi on rent. He added, “We were regularly met with the Supertech and put pressure on them to start the construction work and start giving possession of our flats. My wife and I regularly went to the site and checked how much work was  done. In EcoVillage, residents are facing the issue of a pending registry, there is lack of basic amenities and there are many residents who haven’t got their possession.”

Bharadwaj shared that the society has 54 towers with 8500 flats and there are approximately 3200 residents living in the society. He said that all the towers are half completed and there is only one lift in the respective towers, water quality is not good.

He added, “I’m paying my house rent, and the monthly EMI of my flat, which I haven’t goten yet. We have to take possession of the half-completed flats because it is very tough to pay the rent and EMI as well.”

The Noida Extension Flat Owners Welfare Association (NEFOWA) is also trying their best and organised the meeting between the residents, builder, and the authority for solving the resident's issue. Builders have their dues in the authority and in between all this conflict, the residents are facing problems. According to Bharadwaj, Authority and the builder have a  communication gap. Bharadwaj added, “Most of the residents have already applied for the No Due Certificate (NDC) and will get handover in the last of September or October after a long wait of 10 years.”
