Gzb: Why is Mahagunpuram's last tower not being handed over to buyers?

Real estate major Mahagun India has been directed by Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) to submit a compliance report of its Mahagunpuram society project in Mahrauli, Ghaziabad, within the next 15 days. 

The builder has constructed 11 towers of the society in two phases. Out of this, seven towers that were constructed in the first phase were delivered to buyers in 2012. Three of the remaining four towers, constructed in the second phase, were handed over to the buyers this year during Diwali. However, possession of one tower still remains.

The builder had earlier informed City Spidey that the delivery of flats in this tower was getting delayed because GDA was taking time to issue completion certificates. GDA officials, in turn, told City Spidey that the completion certificates of this tower were being held back because there were complaints from residents against the builder for not complying with the original layout of the project.

In the words of Nishant Dubey, a buyer of the last tower, “Our flats have not been handed over, despite the fact that they are ready.”

Amit Chauhan, who has purchased a flat that was completed in the second phase of construction, sympathises with Dubey. “Incomplete amenities are not the fault or responsibility of the buyers, and therefore they should not be held hostage this way,” he said.

The complaints against the builder were lodged by occupants of the older towers. 

Speaking to City Spidey, IC Jindal, president of the Mahagunpuram AOA, said that the builder, apart from violating the original construction layout, had also not provided a slew of essential amenities such as lifts, waste water disposal systems, and Ganga jal connection.

“The builder is yet to provide service lifts in several towers, two back-up generators and one sewage treatment plant, among other facilities,” Jindal added.

Sachin Garg, general manager of the project, told City Spidey that the residents' allegations were baseless. “We shall file the compliance report in the next 15 days. Thereafter, we shall apply for completion certificates,” he said.
