Gurugram: Breez Global Heights residents protest against builder – ET RealEstate

GURUGRAM: Residents of Breez Global Heights in Sohna’s Sector 33 staged a protest against the developer on Sunday over erratic power supply and shabby maintenance in the society.

Hundreds of flat owners took part in the agitation holding placards and banners and raising slogans against Breez Builders and Developers Private Limited for failing to provide basic amenities, like regular power and water supply and security.

Despite raising several complaints on the matter, the developer is not willing to listen and address the concerns, the residents alleged.

According to the agitators, they have been facing frequent outages for 8-14 hours almost every day, which is affecting their daily routine, especially since many people are working from home and children have online classes. They have also alleged that the developer is arbitrarily charging maintenance fees from them.

Society resident Asmita Pathak said: “We have been facing frequent power cuts due to which our children are struggling with their online classes and some are not being able to take tests. When we asked the service provider, we were told inferior quality of cables is causing frequent outages, this despite the fact we have paid more than Rs 4 crore as external development charges.”

The affordable housing project was launched in 2015 and possessions were given in 2020.

Currently, around 500 families stay in the society.

Residents also said the lifts malfunction frequently, the quality of construction material is poor and there are cracks on walls.

The developer, however, refuted all allegations.

“We are not making any profit and levying only usable charges and many residents are not making payments on time. The facility is being managed by a private firm and whatever issues arise, they are attended to on time. Despite increased expenditure, we have not raised the charges and we are doing our best so that the residents do not have to face any inconvenience,” said Rajeev Jain, director, Breez Builders and Developers Private Limited.

Gurugram: Two years after flats handed over, Vardhman Mantra gets OC – ET RealEstate

GURUGRAM: The department of town and country planning (DTCP) on Monday issued the occupation certificate (OC) to Vardhman Mantra, a group housing society in Sector 67, providing major relief to about a thousand families.

Launched in 2010, the project is spread over 11 acres and has 1,207 units in 15 towers. The builder had promised delivery of the flats in 2014 but offered it only in 2019, that too with several deficiencies and without an OC.

The absence of an OC meant residents have gone without a permanent power connection and a proper water and sewer system in place. The buyers complained at various platforms, including CM window and DTCP. They alleged the builder had diverted the money to a commercial project — a shopping mart adjacent to the residential area.

District town planner (enforcement) RS Batth said licence no. 69 of 2010 was issued to the builder for developing a group housing society. “There were deficiencies in the project but in the interest of families and homebuyers, the DTCP had directed the developer to resolve the issues. The builder complied and the OC has been granted,” he added.

Batth said the OC had been put on hold due to “several internal issues and deficiencies in documentation”. “Other pending issues, such as permanent water and sewerage connections from HSVP and electricity connection from DHBVN, will have to be taken by the developer before a completion certificate is granted. Till then, it is the builder’s responsibility to arrange these amenities as per government norms,” he added.

Homebuyers, however, flagged several concerns that remain despite the OC being granted. Rajat Arora, a resident, said in the absence of a permanent electricity connection, diesel gensets are being used. “The developer is charging Rs 23 per unit for power through DG sets along with an additional Rs 27 per day through prepaid meters without the consent of the buyers. The maintenance charges are also too high,” he told TOI.

Another resident, Munish Sharma, said each flat owner has given Rs 1.55 lakh for electricity infrastructure but electricity is yet to be regularised. “Moreover, even after paying Rs 3,500 per month, there is no maintenance and only five to seven guards take care of the society. Neither the builder nor the estate manager is ready to address issues related to seepage, basement and security,” he said.

In 2020, the DTCP had issued a notice to the developer for not providing electricity, water and sewerage connection to the residents. Apart from this, the builder has also failed to construct the club despite budgeting it in its plan, the department had said then.

Gurugram: Finally, Suncity residents may get a boundary wall – ET RealEstate

GURUGRAM: After a series of requests, the district authorities have finally paid heed to the pleas of Suncity residents to construct a boundary wall around the township in Sector 54. More than 2,000 families residing in the township abutting the Aravali forest range say they feel vulnerable without a boundary wall.

On Friday, officials from the department of town and country planning (DTCP) visited the township for site inspection, where the boundary wall needs to be constructed for enhancing the security of the society. Moreover, the residents raised with the officials the issue of installation of gates at various internal roads and the U-turn required for Suncity on Golf Course Road.

District town planner (enforcement) RS Batth said, “The issue pertains to the construction of a boundary wall along the Suncity township and the Aravali forest land, which have been examined. We have made a note of every point and we are hoping to resolve the matter within the next 15 days in accordance with law.”

In March this year, DTP headquarters wrote to Gurgaon’s senior town planner to submit a proposal before a committee constituted under the chairmanship of the deputy commissioner of Gurgaon and seek permission to construct the boundary wall towards the northern side along the Natural Conservation Zone area and the eastern side of the township.

Kusum Sharma, a resident, said, “It is our long-standing demand to enhance the security of the colony as there have been several cases of theft and intrusion from the Aravali area. Though guards have been deployed, it is not possible to keep guards at all the places. We are now hoping for some early resolution.”

The residents also raised the issue of handover of the society’s community centre, currently in possession of the developer, to the RWA or the MCG. “We are being deprived of a place for holding social gatherings,” said Pramod Sharma, another resident.

HUDA issues additional guidelines for registration of floors as residential units – ET RealEstate

CHANDIGARH: Haryana financial commissioner Sanjeev Kaushal has issued additional guidelines for registration of different floors as separate dwelling units in case of residential plots developed by the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) so that leakage can be avoided in stamp and registration duties.

In this regard, Kaushal has issued a letter to all the deputy commissioners, tehsildar-cum-deputy registrars and all naib tehsildar-cum-deputy/joint-registrars in the state.

He stated that in case of residential plots developed by HUDA, different floors have been allowed as separate dwelling units but it has been observed that the various instructions issued in this case are not being followed strictly. Therefore, additional guidelines have been issued.

Permission to move and register the entire floor horizontally

There shall be no vertical transfer of any floor. For example, a single floor cannot be registered by the registering officers in the name of two or more separate persons by dividing the same.

Hence, only horizontal complete floor is allowed to be transferred and registered under the Registration Act, 1908 (Central Act 16 of 1908).

There shall be no fragmentation of the plot vertically and all independent floor owners shall jointly own the full plot of land having independent floors. The apportionment of land cost for the purpose of stamp duty and registration fees shall be in equal proportion amongst all independent floors.

It is further clarified that the same shall be 50% each for two floors, 33.33% each for three floors and 25% each for four floors, as per the collector rates fixed from time to time in the respective districts.

Prior permission of HUDA mandatory

Prior permission of HUDA shall be mandatory before registration of a specific floor of a plot whether vacant or built up.

If a constructed floor is transferred, apportioned cost of plot as well as cost of construction of that floor as per the collector rate shall be combined for the purpose of levy of stamp duty and registration fees.

For the registration of such independent floors, in addition to the normal Stamp duty, 1 percent extra Stamp Duty will be paid by the applicant desirous of registering the floor wise dwelling units.

He said that the concerned officers have been directed to enforce the above instructions in letter and spirit. Any violation of the same will be viewed seriously.
