The homebuyers, who are waiting for their flats in past several years, were ecstatic after the arrest of three of the directors of the Amrapali Group on Tuesday. Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court had directed police custody for the directors who were not complying with the forensic audit.

Although the home buyers believed that the move was positive for them, but at the same time they were also skeptical about the move directly affecting the construction of the pending projects.

“We can be hopeful that at least the process has begun. The reality would come out as relevant documents are sought by auditors. But, it would also be too early to comment on it. There is no certainty on when we will get our flats,” said Seema Saini, one of the home buyers.

“Only I can say is that the court has created some pressure on them. I believe it is a positive move,” she added.

The home buyers alleged that Amrapali Group has been constantly presenting wrong facts before them. They said that the court has still not acted tough enough on the developer.

“I believe once the relevant documents are accessed by the auditors, the reality of wrong doing would come out. We will come to know where our hard earned money was actually diverted,” said K K Kausal, another home buyer.

Further, the home buyers expressed hope that the Supreme Court would direct the Uttar Pradesh government regarding the construction of buildings. They alleged that the state government was not supportive to the home buyers rather the government gave free hand to the builders.

“Until it is not made clear that from where the NBCC would get money to construct homes, the uncertainty would not get subsided,” Kausal added.
