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.
