Gurugram: DTCP directs ILD to submit plan to wrap up delayed projects – ET RealEstate

GURUGRAM: Taking serious note of residential projects in the city which have been delayed for over three years, the department of town and country planning has directed the builder, International Land Developers (ILD), to prepare and submit an action plan for their completion within a week.

District town planner (DTP) RS Batth said if ILD fails to submit the plan within the stipulated time, the department would recommend the registration of an FIR against the developer.

The move comes after homebuyers of ILD Arete (Sector 33) and ILD Greens (Sector 37C) met the DTP on Tuesday over three years’ delay in completion and lack of amenities in the projects. They are now planning to file a complaint with H-Rera against the builder.

The developer told TOI that a meeting was held by the DTP for resumption of work at ILD Arete. “Company representatives are in regular touch with the clients and have shared updates with them,” an ILD official said.

Launched in 2013, Arete is only 60% complete. The developer had promised possession of the project, which is spread over 11 acres and has 550 units in eight towers, in December 2019. “ILD’s licence has expired and the developer got registered with H-Rera only this month. They are talking of delivery in 2022, but it doesn’t seem likely even by then,” said Sunil Sharma, a buyer.

Vipin Kumar, who bought a flat in ILD Greens — which has six towers — said the builder offered possession in October 2016, eight years after booking. “Almost four years later, half of the towers are incomplete. Residents still don’t have permanent electricity, water and sewer connections,” he said.

Batth directed the builder to immediately apply for electricity and water connections, comply with lift and fire safety norms and complete the formalities to hand over basic amenities to the RWA. Batth has also directed his team to inspect both the project sites and check construction status. “A notice was served to the directors of ILD to attend the meeting scheduled on Tuesday, but they didn’t turn up,” he said.

Gurugram: Builder’s staff misbehaved, allege ILD Grand buyers – ET RealEstate

GURUGRAM: A group of homebuyers of ILD Grand in Sector 37C have alleged that bouncers at the developer’s office misbehaved with them when they went there to enquire about the status of the residential project.

Spread across five acres, ILD Grand was launched in 2011. The developer, International Land Developers, had promised to give possession by 2016. Even after four years past the deadline, however, the project is only about 70% complete, while buyers have paid 95% of the cost.

Last Wednesday, the builder held a meeting with the ILD Grand buyers’ association to explain the current status of the project. In the meeting, the developer proposed to take additional loans for completing the project and asked for a memorandum of understanding from them stating that they wouldn’t seek a penalty for delay in possession.

“The builder asked buyers to withdraw all delay penalty claims for the completion of the project. The association didn’t agree to this,” a buyer said.

On Friday, the second round of meetings took place. “In this meeting, the builder proposed another meeting the next day, in which they invited buyers’ representatives as well as their financial lender, IIFL,” said Ramesh Dawani, a senior citizen and retired Union home ministry official, who leads the buyers’ association.

“On reaching the office on Saturday, however, the builder refused to meet us. They misbehaved with us and kept us waiting outside,” Dawani added.

“This behaviour has raised serious doubts in the mind of buyers about whether we will ever be able to see our homes. Many buyers are young salaried professionals while the rest are retired personnel. The developer is not concerned about the hardships we are facing,” said said Aditya Nanda, another homebuyer.

When contacted, the developer said their staff did not misbehave with buyers. “Instead, the buyers misbehaved with our staff and hurled abuses at them. The demand we have raised is in accordance with the stage of construction and money is required for the project to be completed,” a spokesperson said.
