The homebuyers complained the widespread delay in the completion of housing projects due to lack of monitoring and enforcement practice by the concerned department.
Gurugram: On Sunday, a group of residents and homebuyers of several affordable housing projects under the Federation of Affordable Buyers Association (FABA) met Badshapur MLA Rakesh Daultabad to complaint against the builders on the violation of affordable housing policy 2013 norms.
The homebuyers complained about the widespread delay in the completion of housing projects due to a lack of monitoring and enforcement practice by the concerned department. They pointed out that developers are demanding additional money for the possession of their flats which is adding a financial burden on them.
Deepak Kumar, president of FABA and a resident of Pyramid Urban Homes said, “The affected buyers were not paid any compensation by the developers for the delay in possession. The payment plan prescribed in policy for affordable housing projects is only time-linked and not based on construction pace giving an undue advantage to collect the amount and divert it to other use.”
The residents also complained to the MLA that developers are even collecting maintenance charges from the user as an operational cost.
Manoj Yadav, a resident of AVL 36, said, “Developers are making their own interpretation and finding loopholes in the policy to exploit the homebuyers. We have requested the MLA to intervene on the matter as it is not only affecting us but is detrimental to affordable housing sectors in the absence of lack of clarity in the policy.”
The MLA Rakesh Daultabad has offered to support the residents and buyers on the issue and assured them that he will take the necessary course of action and discuss the matter with concerned authorities to resolve their grievances.
