Gurgaon’s Reliable Realtech gets 3 days to submit plan as 1,000 home buyers face 5-year delay

GURGAON: Huda and DTCP officials on Thursday inspected the beleaguered Antriksh Heights project of Reliable Realtech in Sector 84, and gave the developer until Monday to submit a detailed plan with timeline for completion of the project, which was launched in 2008 and was scheduled to be completed in 2011.

The plight of buyers of flats in Antriksh Heights was highlighted in TOI in July 2016. Later, the Allottee Grievance Redressal Forum (AGRF) took up the issue in its December 2016 meeting, and directed Huda and DTCP to visit the site and resolve it. Thursday’s inspection was in pursuance of AGRF’s direction.

The developer was asked to submit a tower-wise plan with timeline, and also a timeline for completion of facilities like parking, common area, power connection, etc. “We’ll submit our proposal with timeline by Monday,” said a representative of Reliable Realtech.

Buyers are hoping the developer will follow Huda’s direction. “The government should intervene if the developer fails to comply with its direction,” said Alok Mishra, general manager at a telecom company. He had booked a flat in Antriksh Heights in 2008, but after having completed over 90% of the payment, is still waiting to get possession.

“Buyers are suffering from financial stress due to EMIs and house rent. Repeatedly, the developer has given false verbal promises, after collecting 90% of the money,” said another buyer Dr Vineet Gupta.

There are around 1,000 buyers who had booked flats in the 13 towers of the project, spread over 23.10 acres. A DTCP official said a licence was given to one company in 2008 to develop the group housing society, but the two partners, Jai Bhagwan Garg and Rajbir Singh Goyat, divided it and began developing towers separately. “This is in violation of licence norms,” said the DTCP official.

Assistant town planner (ATP) R S Batth said, “The developer was asked to submit a written commitment and roadmap for completing the project, and to produce an affidavit showing funds collected from buyers have not been diverted to other projects.”
