Acting on a number of complaints against realty major Unitech, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar Sunday directed that a committee be set up under the Gurgaon deputy commissioner to take stock of the company’s assets and liabilities within the country and abroad.
The move could provide relief to allottees of various housing projects developed by Unitech in Gurgaon. For the first time, Khattar presided over the monthly meeting of the district grievance committee in Gurgaon.
In the meeting, pending complaints of residents and allottees of Uniworld Gardens II, Nirvana Country Sector-50, South City II — developed by Unitech — were put forth before the chief minister.
The committee was told that Unitech was not honouring its commitments and was delaying projects, thereby causing losses to the allottees.
Allottees of Uniworld Garden II told Khattar that Unitech had launched this project comprising 896 apartments and 159 EWS flats. Allottees were to be given possession of the flats by September 2011, but that is yet to happen. Similarly, residents of Nirvana Country and South City II alleged that the company was back-tracking on its commitments.
Ramesh Chandra from Unitech, who was present at the meeting, asked for some time to fulfill their commitments.
But Khattar asked him to submit details of all Unitech projects, along with their timelines and details of assets and liabilities, to the Town and Country Planning Department within two weeks.
“If Unitech fails to do so, the department would be free to take ex-parte decision against the firm. The department will look into all financial aspects of these projects,” said Khattar.
Around 1,300 aggrieved homebuyers have been waiting for over four years for their homes. The complainants have alleged that the builder has already taken 95 per cent of the payment and is refusing to carry out further construction.
