Gurugram: No OC after 8 years, buyers still can’t register their flats


GURUGRAM: Around 200 families living in Aloha group housing society in Sector 57 have been facing a tough time as the developer hasn’t applied for the mandatory occupation certificate (OC) even after more than eight years of giving possession. In fact, the residents are unable to get their flats registered and are illegal occupants in revenue records in the absence of such a crucial document.
Following recent complaints to the chief minister’s office by the aggrieved homebuyers of Aloha group housing society, the enforcement team of the district town and country planning department (DTCP) visited the project on Tuesday and directed the developer to apply for OC within a month. The department also issued a notice to the developer to get unauthorized construction from the basement removed in a week.
Launched on 4.4 acres of land by AEZ Infratech in 2005, the project has around 200 units. Thr project was supposed to be delivered in 2008-09 but the developer started giving possession only from 2013 and that too without procuring the mandatory OC.
The residents alleged that the project has been left unfinished and as the developer didn’t complete the pending works, including some basic amenities as promised, in the project. “The developer hasn’t yet applied for the most crucial document. The project is still incomplete as far as amenities are concerned and the residents are unable to get their flats registered,” said Sanjay Gaba, secretary of RWA.
District town planner RS Batth said, “The enforcement team visited the housing society on Tuesday. We have issued directions to the representative of the developer to apply for the requisite permission within one month and remove the unauthorised construction on the ground floor and in the basement area at the earliest.”
Another resident alleged that by not carrying out the conveyance deed, the builder is making money by charging transfer fees at its will against the sale and purchase of flats. “As per a rough estimate, the developer might have earned transfer fees for around 100 or more flats causing huge loss of revenue to the state exchequer,” the RWA members said in their complaint to the CM’s office.
“The builder was to complete facilities like the club house, swimming pool etc, which haven’t been completed to date. Other deficiencies include seepages in the buildings, including the basement — this is weakening the foundation pillars. The society lacks proper street and park lights and a fire safety system,” said RWA president Ashok Garg.
Despite repeated attempts, the developer could not be contacted.
