  • Ackruti knows that flat owners are not united. Out of 800 flat owners only 30-35 people were present for the meeting. It shows, every other thinks that somebody else will fight for him. I am not surprised to see that management is fooling giving false promises. Who ever raises voice will get the threat email about legel action.
    How big group you are matters!! Fix up the next meeting if this time builder don't act. Gather as a crowd put the banners at site, arrange a rally if required. Let media know what is going on. Unless they are affected with bussiness, they are not going to look at your demands.

By our previous correspondence we had already communicated various difficulties and problems faced by the Real Estate Sector including force majeure conditions, due to which there has been a delay in the completion of the Project and as a result of which the possession of your Flat / Unit could not be handed over. Some of the reasons and force majeure events beyond our control are enumerated in detail as under:

    a) Changes in Govt. policy from time to time resulting in delays in clearances and approval of plans change in policies.
    b) Delays in getting approvals and permissions from the local Govt. authorities and bodies.
    c) Local labour migration to other industries and states due to local reasons, resulting in huge shortage of skilled and unskilled labours.
    d) There have been fire incident at our Head office, which has resulted in destruction of voluminous record and systems and gravely affected our operation and development activities.
    e) Shortage of supply of sand due to various reasons including environmental objections on the dredging of sand.



      It is not that we are shielding or trying to avoid in handing over the possession to you, however, you will appreciate that most of the reasons as stated above were beyond our control as a result of which there is a delay in handing over the possession of your flat.

Please note that if we don’t receive any reply from you within sixty (60) from the date of this letter, it shall be deemed that you have agreed to the revised date of possession as stated in Paragraph 5.

          Please write to us an E-Mail on in case you would want to exercise the above option. We sincerely hope and wish more extended support from our esteem customers which we have been receiving since the start of our project.

          our obseration is that this option is very benificial to ackruti only


          For example :
          If "A" booked flat 1000 sqft. 5000/- per sqft in the year 2010 and suppose he paid 50% to Ackruti then his cost till date is
          Paid to Ackruti - Rs. 25,00,000/-
          Paid Stamp duty, registration - Rs. 3,00,000/-
          Paid Service Charges & Vat Rs. 1,00,000/-
          Interest on Loan (10%) Rs. 3,75,000/-

          Total cost upto date Rs. 32,75,000/-
          (Suppose 12,50,000/- paid in the year 2010 & Rs. 12,50,000/- paid in the year 2011)

  • Dear All,

    I found this forum today and went through all the post. It's so disappointing and scary to know all our dreams of owning a home in greenwoods might get scattered.

    Ringrose point is very valid; it’s a loss to take money back with 12% int. But I am also scared incase this project is cancelled or stops at 12th floor then we might loss all the hard earning. Honestly I am totally confused, don't know if I should take a chance and hold back with hopes. It would be very helpful if you all can share your views and plans.

    Hubtown thane, I agree with you; it’s best to handle this situation as a group, but how to unite all 800 flat owners when you don’t know who they are? Fyi, till date I am never ever informed about the meetings arranged by Acruti management, I have complained them numerous times all in vain. I am sure most of the flat owners are in similar situation. Next time if any meeting is planned by Actuti flat members or by the management then pls share in this forum.
    Hopefully all turns well.

  • MMRDA started the rental housing scheme to promote the availablity of flats for the weaker section of the society.
    The Idea was if the rental housing was built by the builder at a portion of land and handed over to MMRDA , the builder will get extra FSI . so if the plot of land can have FSI of 1.3 as per govt rules , by constructing rental housing for MMRDA ... the builder would get FSI 4.
    But there has been lot of changes in the rules by the Govt. on rental housing scheme . Then there are various departments from whom approvals have to be taken even after the scheme has been approved by MMRDA. Hence all the projects under the rental housing schemes are stuck. The list of projects I know under this scheme is in the earlier post.
    HENCE BEWARE ... IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR TIMELY POSSESSION OF YOUR FLATS .... DONT BOOK IN ANY PROJECT WHICH HAS MMRDA RENTAL HOUSING SCHEME AS THE BASIS OF APPROVAL.
    THERE IS NO CERTAINITY ON WHEN OR WHETHER YOU WILL GET YOUR FLAT

  • It is getting delayed delayed and delayed. Till the time all the flat owners are fragmented the Builder will enjoy the benefit. Let us get together - not 30/50 minimum about 500-600 people and then talk to builder for one full day. If required let us take a call whether any legal opinoin can be explored.

  • Delay in Possession

    Hi All,

    I have been following this thread ......
    I am also one of the frustated buyes of Ackruti Greenwoods Thane.

    Just received a letter from Ackruti saying possession date has been revised from March 2013 to Sept 2013 for "C" wing.

    I am making continuous calls to Site officers to know the construction status.Last time I called up in April 2012, they said construction is stopped and would start again from May end. Today when I called up , they are saying it will take 2 more months to start the construction.

    I dont see them in a mood to start the construction n complete the project on a high priority..

    Not starting construction even after getting CC upto 29th floor from TMC.
    Moreover not compensating for this hapless project delay.

    I strongly see a need of all buyers coming together n take some legal action against Ackruti group.

  • Home-on-rent: 3,000 units to be ready in Thane soon

    Published: Monday, Jun 4, 2012, 9:06 IST | Updated: Monday, Jun 4, 2012, 1:09 IST

    In a boost to the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority’s (MMRDA) rental housing scheme, around 3,000 tenements are expected to be ready soon at two sites in Thane.
    Till now, the MMRDA has sanctioned location clearances to 41 projects and expects around one lakh houses to be built under the scheme in the next two years. Of these projects, around 20 have received permission to start work.
    Under the rental housing scheme, the MMRDA plans to construct tenements to be given on a rent ranging between Rs800 and Rs1,500 a month. Any individual, who has been a resident of Maharashtra for the last 15 years and has a minimum monthly income of Rs5,000 would be able to avail a home under this scheme, which is also a slum prevention programme.


    MMRDA commissioner Rahul Asthana has visited the two rental housing projects in Thane — at Vartak Nagar and Manpada. “We expect the Dosti Vihar project at Vartak Nagar to deliver 1,492 rental tenements in four buildings by August, along with 32 shops, four balwadis, four welfare centers and four cabins for caretakers,” said Asthana. At the Dosti Imperia site in Manpada, 1,429 houses in five buildings are expected to be ready soon. The same facilities will be provided here too.
    The government had recently agreed to changes in the scheme and increase the size of the tenements to 300 sqft from the earlier 160 sqft.
    It was decided to hike the carpet area of the 52,000 tenements for which clearances have been given for 300 sqft area, but work is yet to start. However, the size of 37,000 flats on which work has begun will remain 160 sqft.


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ................. Dosti completed around 3000 rental flat, same time ackruti started construction of rental building, till date they even not completed 300 flats........................ reason from management is pending approvals?

  • Time for legal action

    It is really digusting and frustrating feeling after booking flat in Ackruti!

    Really annoyed and feel we all should really take legal action against them. I am sure we all have strong evidence against the builder based on the inordinate delays , false claims done since time of booking and they have mislead us but not sharing information at early stage.

  • At meeting dated 22/05/2012 with Ackruti Management, a director of Ackruti told to customer that the building construction work will start within 20 days in full swing, now almost 16 days past.
    After completing 20 days all customers expect new reason from management for stop work. new reason may be rain in thane
