UP RERA conducts meeting with homebuyers; assures resolution of problems

The Uttar Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority (UP RERA) officials on Thursday conducted a meeting with the homebuyers and residents of various societies to discuss their problems in Indira Gandhi Kala Kendra at sector-6 in Noida. The meeting was chaired by Rajiv Kumar, chairman of UP RERA.

During the meeting, the homebuyers shared the problem of delayed projects in the last 8 to 10 years.

“The Noida Authority did nothing for the buyers and they always support the builder. The Noida Authority does not take any action when the builder does not turn up for a meeting with buyers,” said Alok Shroff, a resident of Sunshine Helios in Sector-78 of Noida.

More than two lakh housing units are stuck at various stages in Uttar Pradesh, especially in the NCR region. Builders struggle to complete projects and meet timelines due to overcapacity and financial constraints.

Colonel P Chandra, Vice President of Federation of Noida and Greater Noida AOA told City Spidey that they discussed many problems with the RERA members.

“On the delayed projects, we said that Noida Authority should find a practical solution to complete all the projects so that thousands of home buyers will get their flat,” Chandra said.

“The developers made the commercial shops at the residential plot and builders also take the rent of these shops. But according to building bylaws, after the handover, the rent should be taken by the AOA of the society, not the builder. And, the AOA use that money to maintain the society but the builder did not follow these rules,” Chandra said.

Chandra also said, “After the Shahberi incident, the high rise residents are living in fear. So, we demand three types of audit- quality control audit, waterproofing audit and structure stability audit.”

“We live in Seismic Zone-4 and builder did not make the society according to this. Noida Authority officials should check the projects whether the builder is making the projects according to this or not. After inspection, Noida Authority should issue a certificate on it,” Chandra said.

Residents and home buyers also complained to UP RERA chairman that the Noida Authority has done the registry on the super area instead carpet area. As per the RERA guidelines, the registry should be done on the carpet area but the registry is done on the super area.

Officials of RERA assured that they came to prepare the blueprint of the problems and they noted all the problems and assured help.

The second office of UP RERA is soon going to be set up in Greater Noida. Before this office, the UP RERA had only one office in Lucknow. Most of the complaints belong to Ghaziabad, Noida and Greater Noida and this office will resolve the problem of these cities.
