Nodia Authority convened meetings between residents and homebuyers of Amrapali Group’s three residential projects in Noida and the builder at Indira Gandhi Kala Kendra, Sector 6, Noida, on May 4. The meetings were chaired by Shishir Singh, ACEO of Noida Authority.
The first meeting was held between residents of Amrapali Sapphire, Sector 45, representatives of the builder and Noida Authority officials. Homebuyers complained that the builder had given possession of 400 units out of 1308. They said that the builder has installed only one lift instead of three in the tower where the 400 families are staying.
Bhupinder Malhi, president of Amrapali Sapphire Jan Welfare Society, told City Spidey, “My 80-year-old mother, along with my brother, had come from New York last week. When they came to the society and found that the lifts were not working, they chose to stay at a hotel.”
The registry of their flats, which has been pending for the last one year, was another of their concerns.
Anil Sharma, managing director of Amrapali Group, said that the process for registry of flats would begin within three months. “The work for installation of lifts will be completed in a month,” he said.
Singh told City Spidey that the builder has to pay Rs 142 crore to the Authority and if it pays 25 per cent of the amount, it can begin process of registry of flats. He asked the builder to submit tower-wise report to the Authority within a week.
The second meeting was held between buyers of Amrapali Eden Park, Sector 50, representatives of the builder and Noida Authority officials. Maintenance issues and lack of firefighting system in the society were the main concerns of the residents.
“The officials of the builder always gives dates but the problems remain unsolved,” said Ramit Gupta, general secretary of the AOA.
Sharma said, “We want one month’s time to solve the issues of the residents. The firefighting system will be installed within a month.”
Singh said that the Authority has given strict instruction to the builder to instal firefighting system and has said that other works can follow after that. “If they do not instal firefighting system in the society soon, the Authority will take action against the builder,” added Singh.
The third meeting involved buyers of Amrapali Princely, Sector 76, builder’s representatives and Noida Authority officials. Illegal construction and incomplete construction work were the buyers’ main concerns. Residents alleged that the builder has made illegal shops in the green area of the society.
“M, N, O and P towers are still under construction and we have demanded the exact date of completion," said Sweta Singh, a homebuyer.
"A team from the Authority will go there for inspection and if any illegal construction is found, it will be razed to the ground immediately," Singh said.
Shiv Priya, director of Amrapali Group, said that he would submit the tower-wise report within a week.
