GURUGRAM: A group of residents and homebuyers of several affordable housing projects in the city, under the banner of Federation of Affordable Buyers Association (FABA), met Badshapur MLA Rakesh Daultabad on Sunday, seeking his intervention on the alleged violation of provision of affordable housing policy 2013.

Highlighting their plight, the homebuyers complained that there is a widespread delay in completion of affordable housing projects with poor monitoring and enforcement by the concerned department. They further claimed that the developers are arbitrarily demanding additional amount at the time of possession of their flats putting additional burden on them.

Deepak Kumar, president of FABA and a resident of Pyramid Urban Homes said, “The affected buyers were not paid any compensation by the developers for delay in possession. The payment plan prescribed in policy for affordable housing projects is only time-linked and not based on construction pace giving an undue advantage to collect the amount and divert it to other use.”

Moreover, the developers are collecting maintenance charges as the user charges of operational cost, they alleged.

Manoj Yadav, a resident of AVL 36, said, “Developers are making their own interpretation and finding loopholes in the policy to exploit the homebuyers. We have requested the MLA to intervene on the matter as it is not only affecting us but is detrimental to affordable housing sectors in the absence of lack of clarity in the policy.”

Meanwhile, Daultabad has assured the residents and homebuyers that he will take up the matter with the concerned department and authorities to resolve their grievances.
