A group of residents from Griha Pravesh, a luxury residential society in Sector 77, registered complaint against the management body with the Noida Authority. They registered complaint on the Twitter handle of the Authority and tagged Prime Minister as well.
They complained that the association, which takes care of the society's maintenance, is not allowing them to access the power backup facility and also charging exorbitant rates for the same.
Avnish Jha, who has shifted to his flat recently, said that the problem is happening with the people who have bought unsold inventories from the developer. He added that they are allowed to use limited facilities different than other residents.
Jha said, “I bought my flat in October last year. I was asked to pay maintenance charges for the period of November 2018 to March 2019. Only after paying the due amount of Rs 27,000 as common area's maintenance, electricity supply was given to my flat. But I was denied access to the power backup facility.”
He alleged that he is forced to live without power backup facility since he moved into his flat in March this year. The management is also asking hefty amount for the supply of power from DG set.
Gautam Kumar, President of Griha Pravesh Flat Owners Association said “According to the UP Apartment Act, maintenance charges have to be borne by owner whether it is occupied or vacant. Going by the Act, the association charge the maintenance.”
He added, “The complaints are baseless. All of them were assured that issue of power backup will be resolved soon.”
He said that the association is planning a general body meeting to solve the issue. “They will have to comply with the decision taken in the meeting. Then, they can get access to power backup. The GBM will happen after two weeks,” he said.
