An eight-member team, along with Local MLA Pankaj Singh, met urban development minister Suresh Kumar Khanna in Lucknow yesterday night. The meeting, however, failed to yield any outcome.
An eight-member buyers’ delegation of Amrapali Group met urban development minister Suresh Kumar Khanna in Lucknow yesterday night. Local MLA Pankaj Singh also travelled with the delegation.
Though the minister tried to assuage the buyers verbally, the team failed to extract a written assurance, leaving the delegation feeling dissatisfied.
A member of the delegation said, “The minister told us he would take up the issue UP CM Yogi Adityanath, and ask him to talk to Union minister Arun Jaitley. However, he refused to give any written assurance — or loans to the developer to complete the stuck projects.”

Rahul Kashyap from the delegation told City Spidey, “The government gave only verbal assurance of support. We want a financial audit of the project, where buyers have already deposited 80 to 90 per cent of the flat amount, and the developer has squandered away that money.”
KK Kaushal, another member, added, “The minister will come on October 5 to meet the buyers and CREDAI members in Noida. He also assured that he will take suitable action when he visits Noida.”
Having failed in its objective to get a written confirmation from the minister, the delegation will now talk with others buyers and decide whether or not they want to continue the protests.
Homebuyers of Amrapali Group have been protesting since August 12 outside Amrapali office in Sector 62, Noida, demanding a date for the delivery of flats.
