In yet another homebuyer protest, hundreds lodged a complaint against the builder of Vedantam, a residential project in Noida Extension, at the Bisrakh police station. The disgruntled group included those who had invested in the project, and members of NEFOWA (Noida Extension Flat Owners Association).
They complained that despite having paid 95 per cent of the total cost, they still had no flat and had to live in rented accommodation. When they had booked the flat in 2011, the builder had promised them of possession in 2014, but even two years later, the buyers had nothing.
Moreover, said Rajesh Kumar, secretary of NEFOWA, the builder had sent them pre-possession letters and was trying to force them into shifting in. This, despite the project not having either an occupancy certificate or a completion certificate. On top of that, the society did not even have basic amenities such as a Ganga water connection, a firefighting system or a clubhouse.
Vineet Pandey, SO of the Bisrakh police station, confirmed that a complaint had been lodged against the builder and that they would start an investigation in the matter.
When City Spidey tried to contact the builder, no one was available for comment.
