Under pressure from government for not fulfilling the commitment made to buyers, Unitech owner Ramesh Chandra appeared before DTCP and narrated the problems faced by the company. Chandra also assured to make all efforts to complete the projects. Chandra assured to pay the external development charge and infrastructure development charge to renew the licenses.
License for the project is given for three years by DTCP, licenses of the many projects, which are delayed by several years, of the company has lapsed. It is necessary to renew the licenses to complete the project.
Deputy commissioner of Gurgaon TL Satyprakash said some of the project of company is in bad shape but there are green spots in some projects. “IF everyone cooperates then we can reach at a position where home buyers can get relief,” said Satyaprakash.
Home buyers, however, were not very satisfied with the outcome of meeting. Rakesh Yadav, home buyers of Unitech, was present in the meeting, said instead of taking strict action against the developer government is giving them time. “No firm commitment was made by the developer. They simply gave assurance, which they are giving for years,” said Yadav.
Hemvati Sheoran, home buyer of Anthea Floors of Unitech, said developer is saying that they don’t have money to complete the project. “What about the money they have collected from us. People have 70-90% of cost in most of the project still projects are far from over. What they did with our money. Government should investigate it,” said Sheoran adding that instead of giving time to developer government should seize their properties and use it to complete the projects.
