The Uttar Pradesh Government decided not to approve building map for any developer who fails to deliver the delayed projects. This decision has been taken in a meeting that took place between the top administration officials and homebuyers recently.
Earlier in April this year, Suresh Khanna, the Urban Development Minister of Uttar Pradesh stated that the Government will take necessary actions against the developers to who are yet to offer possession of delayed residential projects in the state. The action was said to be taken in the interest of homebuyers. Similarly, the GDA i.e. Ghaziabad Development Authority also filed FIR against various developers.
Minister Khanna had also stated that action against developers will be taken after considering the legal clause and options available with the State Government as the Court also directed that an arrest cannot be made in any case where the punishment is subjected to less than seven years. Although a chargesheet can be filed in these cases and thus we will do the best in order to offer relief to the homebuyers.
The Ghaziabad Development Authority [GDA] has previously registered FIRs against several developers but the action did not yield desired results and thus the authority now changed the tactics in order to get things done. According to a GDA top official, the purpose to stall building map approval is to ensure timely delivery of housing units to the home buyers in the city.
More than 20 developers in the Ghaziabad are yet to deliver possession of previous residential projects and the legal action has been taken against more than five of them. Out of a total of 19,990 housing units, 15,790 dwelling units are complete and the possession of only 8,662 units have been offered so far.
