Noida: Residents of the Supertech Capetown, Noida sector 74 have raised the issue of increasing common area maintenance (CAM). Residents of the society also protested against the builder and sent a mail to the builder to roll back the CAM charges.
As per the residents, the CAM was increased on April 24 from the current rate of Rs. 2.25 per sqft to Rs. 2.60 per sqft. As per the residents, the builder did not share any prior notice with them on his plan to increase the CAM rates. The residents allege that the quality of facilities provided by the builder does not justify the new increased charges of Rs 2.60 per sqft.
देश का कानून @Supertechltd जैसे बिल्डिंरो पर लागु ही नहीं होता।— A K Pandey (@ak_pandey_ajay) April 27, 2022
पैसे लेकर फ्लैट न देने, पूरा CAM के बदले आधी सर्विस देने वाले, पानी के नाम पर जहर सप्लाई करने पर भी FIR नही होती। जबकि आम आदमी के छोटी भूल पर भी बुलडोजर चल जाता है।

In a talk with CitySpidey, Pandey says, “The facility provided by the builder is not even worth one-third of the amount he charges. We have been raising this issue through Twitter and we have sent several e-mails also. However, there is no response from the builder's side. Residents also went to the builder's office to meet the maintenance head. But the office was locked. Who will listen to us? Why is the AOA of society not doing anything?”
Varnit Bisht, another resident of the society says, “All the residents of the society oppose the increasing CAM charges. Nobody has given consent to deduct the amount from the prepaid meter. Then on whose confirmation builder has implemented the changes. If he has the consent of 51% of the society residents then kindly share the same with us. We have a legal body of residents, AOA and as per them, they have confirmed that no consent was given by them as well. The builder should confirm on what basis the CAM charges were increased and deducted from the prepaid meter.”
Another resident on the condition of anonymity says, “The last time also the builder had increased the CAM charges but with the support of residents we were able to push back that increase. At that time, the resident had given some conditions to the builder pointing out that any increase in the CAM would be justified only if those conditions are met. One of the conditions was that the builder will not involve any 3rd Party to handle the maintenance of the housing society. At that time the builder had accepted all the clauses. But even though those conditions were never met the builder still increased the CAM charges.”
Citispidey tried to contact the AOA President of Supertech Capetown Arun Sharma but he was not available for comment.
