Gurugram: Greenopolis residents get upset after hearing postponed in HRERA
Hundreds of homebuyers of Greenopolis society, located in Gurugram's sector 89, got disappointed on Thursday when the hearing in Haryana RERA was postponed after the HRERA Chairman called in sick.
The buyers were anticipating that some major decision would come in Haryana RERA court.
However, the court proceeding did not take place as they were informed that HRERA Chairman, Dr. KK Khandelwal was ill and the next proceeding will be held on October 3.
A large number of homebuyers were present in the HRERA court premises for the hearing and were agitated over the delay in hearing and started protesting against the builder outside the HRERA office in the Civil Line.
Later, the homebuyers met Union Minister for State and local MP Rao Inderjit Singh at the PWD Rest House. They apprised the MP about the matter over non-delivery of flats and inaction against the builder by HRERA.
The minister assured that he would talk to the HRERA chairman about the concerned matter.
Dimpy Diwan, a homebuyer said, “We were expecting some major decision would come on the matter, however, the hearing got postponed for October 3. We met union minister Rao Inderjit Singh and explained him about the matter and problems faced by the homebuyers. He assured that he will talk to HRERA chairman to resolve the matter.”
According to the homebuyers, the project was launched in 2012 by Oris Infrastructure and Three C Shelters Pvt Ltd. and was to be developed over 47.21 acres of land. The homebuyers were supposed to be given the possession in December 2015, but they are still waiting for their homes.
Notably, on January 23, HRERA Gurugram Bench gave a 61-page decision, according to which the unfinished work of Greenopolis residential project was to be completed by Oris Infrastructure and 3C Shelter Infrastructure Pvt Ltd. in three phases by the year 2020 and the first phase was to be completed in July, 2019, but nothing was done on the matter and caused undue distress to the residents.
Ravi Prasad, President of Greenopolis welfare association said, “We have been waiting for our flats since 2015. We are paying EMIs and rents which is causing so much financial strain on us.”
“The petition was filed on April 2018 and in January 2019, the court had ordered the builder to complete the project phase-wise, however both the builders are passing the buck to each other and not implementing the order. We have given 90 to 95 per cent of the amount for the flat,” he added.
