Irked homebuyers of Amrapali and IRIDIA — protested on Sunday and demanded probe of Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) into the delay in delivering the possession of the flats. The protesters also demanded that nexus between builders and Noida Authority should also be investigated as no official from the Authority has come to the aid of flat buyers till now.
Flat buyers of various Amrapali projects in Greater Noida along with Noida Extension Flat Owners Welfare Association (NEFOWA) members gathered at Noida Extension round about and started a rally. Angry buyers said that Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath has made only verbal promises and did nothing solid to help them.
We always have been assured many things but nothing actually happened. We want CBI to look in the matter now and take action against the builder and the Authority,” General Secretary of NEFOWA Shweta Bharti said.
IRIDIA project investors also staged a protest and raised slogans against developer, the State Bank of India (SBI) and the Noida Authority. IRIDIA project in Sector 86 Noida, launched in 2012, is at standstill since September, 2014, after a notice from Noida Authority.
After 3 years of filing complaints with Uttar Pradesh government, the flat buyers finally decided to start the protest march starting from Rajnigandha Chowk till the District Magistrate’s (DM) residence in Noida, Sector 27. The protesters submitted their memorandum for Adityanath through DM of Gautam Buddha Nagar.
“We have heard their problems and will take the matter further with Noida Authority,” said District Magistrate BN Singh.
IRIDIA project builders promised possession of 720 flats to the buyers from lower middle class and middle class by the year 2016. After constructing 14 floors, the project was declared illegal and came to a sudden halt destroying dreams of hundreds of buyers.
Cases have been filed with Economic Offence Wing (EOW) and National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) also in this regard but no one has come forward to help them in resolving their issue, till now.
