Advocating exemplary action against erring builders, Member Parliament Manish Tewari asked the GAMADA officials to take the most stringent action in the book against builders/developers who take gullible citizens on a ride.
“Due to deliberate excessive delays in possession and deficiencies in provision of basic amenities, real estate customers suffer not only from mental and financial injury but also from brazen violation of their right to life and livelihood,” said Tewari. He suggested hefty penalties, cancelation of licenses and criminal action against builders/colonizers indulging in malpractices.
He also suggested the officials to come up with a “Model Builder Buyer Agreement” with an appropriate insertion of a penalty clause. “Generally the agreements are craftily drafted in favour of builders, leaving people in the lurch,” said Tewari.
A lot of complaints are received against the promoters/builders regarding failure to complete the project within the stipulated period and also regarding non-provision of basic amenities such as power, water supply etc.
