Homebuyers in Shubhkamna City in Sector 1 of Greater Noida (West) alleged that the developers had promised to hand over the finished flats by October 2016, but work has been stalled since last year.
Homebuyers have lodged an FIR against Shubhkamna Buildtech Pvt Ltd at Bisrakh police station yesterday for delaying possession of flats.
The director of the firm, Piyush Tiwari, and nine others — including the co-directors and the chairman — have been named in the FIR.
Bisrakh police has registered a case under Sections 406 and 420 of the IPC.
At least a group of 50 homebuyers gathered at the police station yesterday and staged a demonstration against the builder for not handing over the flats as promised.
Following the directives of UP CM Yogi Adityanath, the district police has now started lodging FIRs against errant builders.
In September, the district police lodged 13 FIRs against six real estate developers in Noida and Greater Noida.
Sanjay Maheshwari, one of the homebuyers in Shubhkamna City in Sector 1 of Greater Noida (West), alleged that the developers had promised to hand over the finished flats by October 2016.
“Around 780 homebuyers had booked flats in Shubhkamna City in 2010-11. In the last six years, the buyers have paid 80 – 95 per cent of the amount of the flat, but the residential towers are nowhere near complete,” lashed out Maheshwari, also a member of Noida Extension Flat Owners’ Main Association (NEFOMA).
“We had made several requests to Greater Noida Authority, but they did not initiate any action against the builder. For the past one year, construction work at the site has been completely stopped and the developers are at large,” Maheshwari added.
