The residents of Noida Extension’s Panchsheel Greens are an angry lot.

Today, more than 150 residents of the society protested against the builder, alleging that the builder is posing hurdles in their decision to form an AOA for the society.

The residents also demanded that the builder should call a general body meeting so that the process of making AOA can start.

Meanwhile, the residents say that they have stopped paying the maintenance charges (MC) to the builder. According to the residents, they have already paid the MC at the rate of Rs 2.05 per sq ft in advance for a period of two years at the time of possession, but since no amenities have been developed so far they have decided to not pay the charges anymore.

“Why should we pay any charges to the builder when we are not getting any facilities? There is no security on the premises, the condition of generator for power backup is pathetic and so many other issues,” complained Vikas Kumar, a resident.

Another resident complained that though the society has been operational for more than two years now, the builder has failed to provide even basic facilities like good quality of lifts and completion of all the construction work.

The residents further alleged that the developer has still not provided them with a maintenance agreement. “The Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) guidelines say that the builder is responsible for providing maintenance for the sold property on a regular basis and the charges for that have to be borne by the resident. RERA clearly mentions that a maintenance agreement between the developer and the buyer is mandatory, enlisting a break-down of the costs involved in the maintenance of the society,” said Kumar.

When City Spidey tried to contact the builder, he was not available for comment.
