In Noida Extension, Amrapali buyers protested against builder for delayed possessions.
The Noida Authority has constituted a committee to look into concerns raised by home buyers who have invested in housing projects, including that of the Amrapali Sapphire Group.
The committee is also expected to carry out inspections in these housing complexes to check if the facilities promised by builders were actually being provided, said Noida Authority officials.
“The committee will listen to buyers’ grievances every week. It will then conduct spot checks of the property to see if facilities are being provided. Home buyers can submit their complaints to the planning department. Builder projects will be checked every week. From April 25, the Amrapali project in Sector 45 will be looked into and grievances of these home buyers will be addressed,” said a senior official of the Noida Authority.
Last week, residents of Amrapali Sapphire Group’s housing project had taken to social media, sending messages to the realtor’s brand ambassador and cricketer M S Dhoni about the alleged lack of facilities in the society.
On the basis of such complaints, home buyers from the Amrapali Sapphire Group and other societies in Noida had approached the Noida Authority. While the Amrapali management had asked for a three-month period to complete pending work and address investors’ concerns, the Authority has formed a committee to look into these complaints.
NOIDA: Buyers of 1,800 apartments at Amrapali Heart Beat City in Sector 107 are left in the soup after paying for homes whose construction has been delayed by two years now. Despite the builder promising to resume work after Diwali, nothing has moved yet.
The only solace is that the project would automatically come under the state's Real Estate Regulatory Act (RERA).
"We were promised that the construction would start immediately after the festive season, but nothing much has moved on the ground. Representatives of the company had come to the building site before Diwali and conducted some rituals to announce that the construction would start, but now, there is no movement," Puneet Parashar, a member of the Sector 107 Heart Beat City Buyers' Association, told TOI on Tuesday.
Three residential projects in Sector 107 had got stuck in litigation over land acquisition issues for over two years. The Supreme Court cleared the projects as the opposing parties who had challenged the land acquisition bid withdrew their case from the Allahabad high court.With the Uttar Pradesh government having notified RERA in the state, the project now falls under "ongoing" category, thus automatically bringing it under the regulator's rule books.
Besides Heartbeat City, buyers from 10 other Amrapali projects have been demanding speedy construction at Verona Heights, Centurian Park, Tropical Garden, Terrace Homes, Dream Valley, Golf Homes, Platinum, Sapphire, Silicon Valley and Princely Estate.
"We are waiting for a final directive from the Noida Authority to commence the construction at Amrapali Heart Beat City," Shiv Priya, executive director, Amrapali.
