In his 30-minute-long speech, he said that BJP-led UP government was facilitating the delivery of 50,000 flats in Noida, Greater Noida and Yeida. What about Ghaziabad?
On his visit to Ghaziabad only a day before March 31, the slated deadline for delivery of 23,842 flats in the city, the UP CM failed to even mention the Ghaziabad homebuyers. UP urban development minister Suresh Khanna had assured the delivery of these flats in a meeting in Ghaziabad in December last year.
The CM was in Ghaziabad on Friday to inaugurate the Hindon Elevated Road. In his 30 minute long public address CM Yogi mentioned that the BJP led Uttar Pradesh government was facilitating the delivery of 50,000 flats together in Noida, Greater Noida and Yeida.
Vineet Upadhyay, a homebuyer at JNC Greenwoods, Vasundhara Sector 3, said, “It is unfortunate that the CM failed to mention Ghaziabad homebuyers while addressing people in the city. We had approached the three member ministerial committee with our issue and our problems were heard. However, our flats are far from being delivered. Nothing concrete has happened so far”.
Similar views were shared by Bipin Singh, a homebuyer at Raksha Vigyan Sahkari Awas Samiti, a residential project on NH24 in Ghaziabad. “Our society has around 1,504 flats, none of which are complete. We were assured delivery by the end of March 2018 but we don’t trust the builder any more. It seems that he owes money to the GDA. Only the towers have been erected so far. At the current pace of work it might take another 3 years before the society is complete,” Singh said.
However, buyers of some of the housing projects are expecting better results. “Our builder has almost delivered two towers of the society and is delivering the third tower now. From what we have learnt, delivery of the fourth and the last tower might be completed by April. But it is unfortunate that Ghaziabad homebuyers did not find a mention in the CM’s speech,” said Vikram Baranwal, a homebuyer at Gulmohar Residency in Indirapuram. This society too was supposed to be completed by March 31.
Recently, the Ghaziabad Development Authority had pulled up nine builders for delay in delivery of flats. Raksha Vigyan Sahkari Awas Samiti and Gulmohar Residency too were included in the list. GDA officials said that severe action would be initiated against those builders who failed to deliver flats on time. The GDA can even file FIRs against erring builders.
