The residents’ welfare association of Greenopolis, a group housing project in Sector 89 here, on Thursday submitted a complaint against the developers to the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA), Gurugram.
The issues raised by the RWA in the complaint included the three-year delay in completion of the project, non-payment of external development charge and internal development charge, and non-registration of the project under the RERA Act.
The RWA has urged the authority direct the developers — Orris Infrastructure Private Limited and Three C Shelters Private Limited — to submit the phase-wise completion schedule and handover possession of all apartments within six months.
The complaint stated that the developers had jointly marketed the project and did most of the bookings in mid-2012 with a promise to deliver possession before the end of 2015. The RWA submitted that despite receipt of nearly 90% of the consideration amount under the apartment buyer’s agreement, the developers had failed to deliver possession as promised.
The complaint said the developers discontinued all construction activity at the project site in early 2016, when construction of the project should have been completed. When construction activity failed to resume at the site for over six months, RWA members and several buyers held meetings with the developers. They also also visited the site and the Departments concerned, including the Department of Town and Country Planning and the Chief Minister’s office.
To their shock, the RWA members said, they were informed in the meetings that the developers did not have funds to complete the project. Further, the association alleged, the building plan submitted and approved by the authority concerned showed a chemical effluent drain passing through the middle of the project but this was not shown in the site plan enclosed in the apartment buyer’s agreement.
The RWA also alleged that the project licence had expired due to non-payment of external and internal development charges, and the size of the project had been changed without approval from buyers.
When contacted, Orris Infrastructure Private Limited managing director Amit Gupta said the land and the licence belonged to them but construction was the responsibility of Three C.
He claimed that a huge chunk of external and internal development charges had already been paid and that only Three C’s share was outstanding.
Mr. Gupta said they had already applied for registration under RERA six months ago but the delay had been caused by the Authority.
A representative of Three C Shelters Private Limited said pending payment of over ₹90 crore from unit holders had caused the delay. He added that four towers were almost ready but they could not apply for occupation certificate due to delay in registration under RERA. He blamed Orris Infrastructure Private Limited for not paying their share of the external development charge.
