Residents of Himalaya Pride move consumer court to demand better facilities

Greater Noida: Residents of Himalaya Pride, a residential society in Greater Noida West went to the consumer court against the builder on December 15, 2021. Due to the absence of the builder or his representatives in the consumer court the hearing has been adjourned to January 21, 2022.

There is a long list of complaints which the residents have and due to which they have decided to reach out to the consumer court. Residents shared that the apartment towers need an urgent paint job and the driveway road needs to be repaired as soon as possible. Residents point that they are paying maintenance charges of 2 rupees per square foot, but the builder is not even providing basic facilities in the society.

One of the major concerns the residents have is about a perceived lack of security in the residential complex. One of the residents mentioned a case of stolen tires of a car, which has recently been reported in the society. For a better security cover the residents are demanding more CCTV cameras in the housing society. 

Some residents pointed out their concern over emergency doors in the building, which the residents alleged, remains permanently locked.

The possession of flats started in Himalaya Pride society started in October 2018. Society has 5 towers and about 900 families live in the society.

A resident who wishes to remain anonymous shares that from the past two years water charges were included in the maintenance but suddenly, the builder has started charging the residents for it. 

Naresh Nautiyal, 51, a resident of the society said, "Builder promised many things to us but there has been no execution. We are paying the full amount of maintenance charges but in return, no maintenance work has been done in the society."

Another resident, Abhishek Shrivastav (37) said, "In the name of maintenance, there are zero services. The load of the generator needs to be increased. Every day, we are facing electricity issues in society.

Builder sold the common area of the society in the name of parking. Towers need to be painted again. The condition of the society is getting poorer by the day."

Devraj Chauhan, an advocate representing the residents said, "The date of second hearing is extended due to builder's absence, we are waiting for the response of the builder."

CitySpidey tried to reach out to the builder but there is no response from his side. We will update after getting any reaction from the builder side.
