The residents of Great Value Sharnam have received legal notices for protesting against the builder earlier this month. Police complaints were also filed against them.
This has happened despite the prior intimation about the protest to DM office and Sector-39 police station.
The residents apprised that they protested inside the society’s premise due to encroachment in the green area for further development and issues related to water, electricity and hygiene.
They also protested against the alleged fraud of diverting maintenance funds for construction work.
The notices and complaints were also sent to a deceased person and a 70-year-old lady who is living without her children at the society.
Some of the clauses imposed by the builder amount to a non-bailable offence and the residents can be arrested anytime soon. Police have also started visiting the resident’s homes.
Now, the builder is planning to up the ante against the residents who will continue to protest or raise their voices even on social media.
The residents said that they have decided to move to the court and also file a counter complaint. Now, they are planning to protest in different ways and campaign on Twitter with help of their family’s and friends’ networks.
A resident, Sanket Jalan said that they are paying maintenance charge at Rs 2.50 per sqft but the builder is providing them with the third-grade service. He said that the builder did nothing when they raised their concerns to him.
“Last month, a robbery happened in my flat. When the police came for investigation, they found that the police verification of the vendors and maids were not done by the builder. This is the main security concern for all residents,” Jalan added.
Jalan also said that the parking space has not been made according to building bylaws. He alleged that the builder has not provided the ample amount of parking slots.
“The builder has also changed the layout plan without informing the residents. This is an illegal thing and Noida Authority is also silent on this matter,” Jalan said.
When City Spidey tried to contact General Manager of Great Value Sharnam, RS Sharma, he was not available for comments.
