Irate residents have painted black over open parking slots, so that it becomes difficult for people to identify them.
The residents of Supertech Capetown, a residential society in Sector 74, Noida, have started protesting against the builder for selling open parking spaces, which were originally meant to be left open. They suspect the builder would eventually not give allotment of the underground parking spaces for which residents have already paid Rs 4 lakh in advance.
The builder has still not completed the construction of underground parking and the residents fear that those spots will be sold to new flat buyers. The residents have also complained that lifts are still not fully operational in basement-2 parking. They are having to use the stairs to get there
As a mark of protest, the residents have painted black colour on the open parking slots, so people are unable to identify them.
“The builder was forcing residents with two or more cars to buy more parking slots, while it kept quiet on the status of underground parking,” a resident, Bhupendra Rautela, told City Spidey.
He added that the roads of society get blocked as people are parking vehicles in the open, and the situation is such that a fire brigade will not be able to reach the spot in case of an emergency.
When City Spidey tried to contact Tapan Das, facilities head of the society, he did not take the call. But a member in Supertech Capetown said that the open parking spaces are temporary slots, as the underground parking is still not complete.
Almost 200-300 residents are worried that they have paid the whole amount in advance for underground parking, but have not received the allotment letters. Others are worried because they have also not been given the final allotment of underground parking.
