GURUGRAM: Residents of Vatika G-21 are worried as the occupancy certificate for two towers in the Sector 83 upscale condominium has yet not been obtained by the developer. Their repeated pleas to the developer as well as multiple authorities over the past five years, the residents claim, have only fallen on deaf ears.

Spread across 20 acres with 14 towers, the project was launched in 2008 and the developer started giving possession to homebuyers in phases from 2012. The residents of towers A and C4 took possession of their flats in 2016. However, even five years after possession of their apartments, the builder has not been able to obtain the OC for these two towers, which have more than 120 flats.

“We have been continuously following up the matter with the developer but got only false assurances and excuses. We are now living under constant fear and mental stress as these two towers do not have OC,” Samaresh Sinha, one of the residents, said.

According to the residents, in the absence of an OC, neither they can insure their properties against natural calamities nor sell the same. “We cannot sell our flats as no buyer would buy a property without an OC. We can’t even mortgage it against a bank loan. We are really worried now,” said Alok Jha, another resident.

“Moreover, the society doesn’t have a concrete boundary wall. It’s just a temporarily fencing, which poses a serious security concern as well,” said Pradip Rahi, another resident.

Some of the residents living in these two towers have also approached H-Rera and the department of town and country planning (DTCP) against the developer, but are yet to get any relief from the authorities.

“Initially I was reluctant to take the keys of my flat, but I had received a mail from the developer saying that if I did not take possession within the stipulated time-frame, they would impose a penalty,” said Anirban Roy Chowdhury, another resident.

“OC is under process by the government department concerned and will be done shortly,” said Naveen Bakshi, president (operations), Vatika Limited.

Sanjeev Mann, senior town planner, said he was not aware of the matter.
