Info on certificate: Homebuyers get a weapon
Good news for homebuyers of Greater Noida. Now on, builders will not be able to pressurise them to take possession of houses without receiving completion certificate from the Greater Noida Authority.
Homebuyers can now confirm with the authority whether or not the builder has received the completion certificate. Till now, builders could coerce them into taking possession of flats before completing construction work taking advantage of their ignorance.
Information regarding the status of completion of flats can be accessed from the authority by buyers in person or through mail.
"Henceforth, if any builder tries to force a homebuyer to take possession of flat before receiving a completion certificate, action would be initiated against him," PC Gupta, ACEO of Greater Noida Authority told City Spidey.
Gupta said numerous complaints have been received from Greater Noida – West against builders indulging in such coercive practice. It is a clear violation of UP Apartments Act which makes completion certificate mandatory for a builder before handing over possession of flats to buyers.
For information on completion certificate, homebuyers can contact General Manager, Planning, Neelu Sehgal or email to email@example.com. They will get a reply within 24 hours of sending the mail.
Welcoming the move, President of Federation of Greater Noida Resident Welfare Association, Elam Singh Nagar, said, "builders will not be able to harass house owners any more."
National President of Confederation of Real Estate Developers Associations of India (CREDAI), Geetambar Anand, informed City Spidey that they have requested all member builders, who are in receipt of completion certificates, to get all flat owners registered without delay.
