The flat buyers of Diya Green City, who have been trying to get possession of their residential flats for the last two years, have taken their protests to the roads. To highlight their demand the residents carried a protest march and also blocked vehicular traffic at Shahpur Morta Road on November 21, 2021 morning.
The delay in the construction of the building is leading to disputes between the builder and the allottees. After blocking the road, the allottees carried their protest to the local police station and protested in front of it. On being warned by the police, the managing director of the allottee group with others reached outside builder Nishant Garg's house located in Rajnagar Sector-5 and continued their protest. When there was chaos in front of his house, Nishant Garg reached the Kavi Nagar police station and complained about the issue. The allottees met Nishant in the Police station and demanded quick action. “It is an affordable housing scheme, with most of the allottees living in rented accommodation. All the allottees have paid almost the full cost of the flat.”, says Devraaj Kaushik, an allottee.
Om Prakash Mishra, another allottee says, “We are being double burdened with the loan installment along with the rental amount. The flat was to be received two years ago and till now, the construction work is incomplete.”
Madhvi, another allottee says, who was part of the protest, says, “This is not what we want to do on a Sunday morning but we are forced to do so. The builder must be fined for such behavior. Paying for rent along with a loan is too much of a burden for a middle-class family. At least, the builder can try to give us our flat at the earliest but it seems he is not even trying..”
CitySpidey tried to talk to Nishant Garg and get his side of the story but he did not respond.
