Angry homebuyers of Amrapali Silicon City, Sector 76, Noida, have registered a complaint with Noida Authority alleging that the builder carried out changes in the layout without informing them.
This is in violation of the UP Apartment Act 2010, which states that homebuyers’ consent is necessary for making changes to a project.
“I booked a flat here in 2010-2011, but the builder changed the layout and Noida Authority approved the changes in 2012," laments Uday Pal. "But the Act states homebuyers have to be contacted if changes are to be made in the proposed plan. The developers have increased the number of floors in almost all the towers, which will lead to congestion. Car parking will become an issue. New buyers may have to park vehicles outside on the road, which will inevitably cause traffic snarls.”
Another homebuyer, Rajendra Pal, voiced his problem about delayed possession. “The developers offered possession letters to several homebuyers, asking them to make the final payments," he says. "They assured them that once the payments were finalised, flatowners could move in within two months. But it has been more than a year now, and possession still seems like a distant dream."
Pankaj Kalra, another resident of Amrapali, told City Spidey that he has urged Rama Raman, CEO of Noida Authority, to look into the matter. “The project is new, but people have already started living in the apartments. Maintenance of the flats is poor, and one can already see seepage spots. But the builder refuses to listen to our grievances.”
