GURUGRAM: Unable to get any relief from the developer on maintenance and related issues, the residents of Emaar Gurgaon Greens in Sector 102 sat on a hunger strike at the entrance gate of the society on Sunday.

Despite raising their concerns with CM window, DTCP and other agencies, none of their issues — structural and forensic audit and reversal of common area maintenance charges — has been addressed, alleged residents.

“We are on a hunger strike to protest against the dictatorship of the builder, who is earning around Rs 50 lakh in the name of management charges without their involvement in managing the society. The buyers have already submitted many memorandums to the deputy commissioner and other senior officials requesting to direct the builder to reduce the Common Area Maintenance (CAM) charges but no action has been taken,” a resident said.

The developer could not be reached for a comment regarding issues raised by the residents.

Not just this, the homebuyers have also approached the district registrar, firms & societies to provide the membership of the society, conduct the RWA elections and handover of the maintenance to the elected body.

The residents said they are already paying very high maintenance charges and the builder forced them to pay two years’ CAM charges in advance at the time of possession. In some cases, the builder even charged extra as GST, they said.

“Even after charging such high common area maintenance fee, the condition of general services in the society is very pathetic. Only one guard has been deployed in two towers and the horticultural maintenance team consists of only four people which is insufficient to take care of the green area of the society,” said Uday Mehra, a resident.

Gurugram: Emaar Greens residents meet deputy commissioner over CAM fee hike – ET RealEstate

GURUGRAM: Residents of Emaar Gurgaon Greens in Sector 102 met deputy commissioner Amit Khatri on Tuesday and demanded rollback of the proposed hike in common area maintenance (CAM) rate. They have sought reduction of the current CAM rate from Rs 3.65 per sq ft to Rs 2.

The residents said they are already paying very high maintenance charges and the builder forced them to pay two years’ CAM charges in advance at the time of possession. In some cases, the builder even charged extra as GST, they said. Nitin Nanda, a resident, said the builder has proposed to hike CAM charges from January 2021 to Rs 4.83 per sq ft, which may be the highest in Delhi-NCR. “It is pure loot of homebuyers’ money,” he added.

The developer could not be reached for a comment regarding issues raised by the residents.

Meanwhile, residents also alleged that they have written to several government agencies in the past, including the department of town and country planning (DTCP) and H-Rera, but no action has been taken against the developer till date.

“Most of the owners, who bought flats in 2012-13, are eligible for compensation for three years of delay in granting possession, but the developer hasn’t paid them,” said Sandeep Fogaat, a resident.

A resident said the quality of the construction material used is very poor, which may lead to structural damage to the buildings, posing a risk to their lives. “We demand that DTCP conduct a structural and forensic audit of the society,” he said.
