GURUGRAM: Buyers of Unitech’s Wild Flower Country and The Spruce — a residential project in Sector 70 — staged a protest at the developer’s office in Sector 46 on Saturday against the four-year delay in delivery of their plots.
The project was launched in 2011 and the plots were supposed to be handed over to buyers in 2013.
“By 2012, we had already paid 95% of the total cost of the property. However even after four years, the developer has not handed over the plots to us,” said Rajeev Bedi, one of the buyers who works in the pharmaceutical sector.
Residents said the land meant for the plotted development is completely barren and the plots have not been cut as yet. Arrangements for other necessary services such as water connection and sewage have not been made either.
“We have bought plots not flats that require construction, which is why we are unable to understand the delay in the handover. Either they have mortgaged the land for other projects or their intent is not right,” said another investor, Rajesh Kakkar, who works with Jet Airways.
Residents claimed their multiple communications with the developer have not yielded any result. “In our last meeting with the Chandras in July 2016, we were told that we will get possession by 2017. However, there seems to be no development at all,” said RP Gupta, a retired banker.
“By the time the builder hands over the property, some of the senior citizen buyers might not be around to see their houses,” he added.
Buyers said they had informed the developer about the protest in advance and were hoping that officials would address them. But they found the office locked on Saturday morning.
However, when contacted, a spokesperson for Unitech said, “A meeting is already slated with the buyers next week. We are not aware of the protest as Saturday is a weekly off.”
