  • You are right Captain and am fully with you.

    Yes. It has to be for Entire Gurgaon, and not against any specific builder.

    May be, we shall also bring out some other pressing issues with support of all members, that need attention, towards making Gurgaon a Better Urban Centre.

    The idea with which I had started out is that each one of us should stand for each other.
    If the whole of Gurgaon stands united to build a better Gurgaon instead of being fragmented and selfishly interested in "my own apartment only" we should be able to shout loud enough to wake up the authorities, to make various departments move and to tell the builder lobby that we are alive and awake and won't be taken for granted anymore.

    Of the 1000 units in a given project 40% is unsold inventory, 40% held by investors who have no interest in the project other than exiting with a profit at some stage. Of the remaining 20% some 15% don't have the time or ability to follow up and fight it out. So you are finally left with about 5% say 50 odd people who try to raise the issue with the builder.
    Now when they do it, they do it as individuals. The builder uses "Saam Daam Dund Bhed" - almost all of them are tackled one way or the other.

    Now if they were to unite and raise a voice - guess something would move somewhere.
    Guess won't be able to get all 50 to come together.
    What if we can get 10 such like-minded people together. Atleast better than each one by himself.
    Now if say an average of 10 persons from each project, and people from 10 different projects stand to support each other - we already have a 100.
    If we try seriously over a period (am not saying it'll happen in a few days or it'll be easy to do) guess we'll have a larger number of people joining together.

    So this is not just about NPR but about the whole of Gurgaon uniting.

    Personally I am not invested in NPR or DLF, but am all out to raise a voice in both the matters. I would happily stand to support anyone on any genuine issue and will raise a voice against anything that is wrong.

  • DLF New Town Heights, (Different Sectors )

    Thought it is worth highlighting in a separate thread. I do not reside in India but have a property in Dlf NEw Town Heights. My parents visited the property a month or so ago and found it to be of poor construction quality - less cement in between bricks, leakages through walls etc.

    Now on Jun6 th, I receive a letter at my parents home in India demanding an extra 15-16 Lakhs by June 23. This is not the due amount at possession but nearly 7-8 lakhs more. The letter is dated in May but purposefully posted late. No calculations are shared for the increased amount of money demanded.. It's like a scoundrel (here Dlf) asking for more money.

    While some people can pay these kind of of amounts at such short intervals, I pity the guys who cannot and hence are held to ransom by these useless folks at DLF.

At times these are old parents who have either not encountered such nuisance or cannot push too hard due to failing health and general lack of mobility.

    For a simple thing like an accounts statement, sometimes it is difficult to seek clarification without sending someone from your near and dear.

    Government should have a special cell for NRIs similar to what is available in the case of constructed residential property.

    NRIs currently have a huge market and whenever their is a balance of payment problem faced by the nation, it is NRIs which come to the rescue of the government. If the central government is slow due to its limitations, WHY SHOULD HARYANA CM NOT TAKE THIS STEP PROACTIVELY AND CONSTITUTE A SEPARATE CELL TO SORT ISSUES THAT NRIS MAY HAVE??

    Such practices of builders and that too the market leaders are extremely deplorable and should be condemned in all fora. This becomes even more significant as it involves the market leader.

    The moment, US/European/Gulf Real estate picks up, these very builders will be seen in lurch as no one would like to invest with them.

    In this particular case, I guess if more details are discussed in the NTH thread, something can be done as the matter pertaining to escalation has already been decided by CCI judgement dated 13th Jan 13, and DLF ordered to cease and desist from such practices..

    Cheers


    The real reason why DLF is doing what its doing is cos of its inability to pay the delayed penalty. They have used the money meant for other initiatives. So they have come up with some sly techniques:
    1. Increase the unmeasurable Super area by 10% of original. Its been 3 years of asking and they have failed to give calculations of the Super Area.
    2. Send letters late and provide a short time for payment so that people miss the payment deadline and DLF can with hold both the Delayed Penalty and the Timely payment penalty. (They have refused to pay the TPR and delayed penalty to those members who were 1 day delayed in making a payment to DLF; this is the reason for this protest).

  • Important Information - The Venue for meeting has been moved to Jantar Mantar, due to directions from police. It is strange that DLF does not even allow its customers to meet it on a working day.

    See you tomorrow
    Time - 10 AM
    Venue - Jantar Mantar
    Date - June 08, 2013 - Saturday

  • Buyers protest, DLF to hand over flats in 15 days

    REPEAT POST



    After a peaceful three-hour-long protest at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on Saturday, it was victory at last for homebuyers of DLF’s New Town Heights as the real estate giant agreed to resolve all issues and give possession of the flats in the next 15 days.


    The project was launched in February 2008 amid much fanfare.

    But, despite waiting for over five years, the customers are yet to receive possession of their flats due in February 2011.

    “We were forced to stage a protest against the builder as they were delaying giving us possession of our flats. After our meeting, DLF has agreed to offer possession of all apartments for which it has obtained the occupation certificate (OC) from the director, town and country planning department, Haryana government, by June 17,” said Nitin Grover, president of New Town Heights Residents’ Association.

    “The developer has also agreed to return the preferential location charges (PLC) to the buyers who have paid the amount,” he said.

    DLF senior executives and the buyers discussed all issues at length. “Yes, DLF has agreed to give possession of flats or apartments in 15 days but only to the buyers who have made full payment,” said a DLF spokesperson, adding that the PLC would be returned, too.

    Wearing Gandhi caps, more than 250 buyers gathered in front of the DLF office at Sansad Marg at 10am, but the police did not allow them to sit there and raise slogans. Earlier, the DLF executives refused to meet the association members, following which the buyers attempted to block the road.

    But the police thwarted their move and forced them to shift their sit-in agitation to Jantar Mantar.

    “If the company does not keep its promises, we will protest again after one month,” said one of the buyers.

    greetings

    all those who made it to the protest deserve special praise and commendations.

    Wish you all the best in your endeavours and congrats on your success.

    Others should take a leaf out of your determined actions and should not take cheating/extortion lying down.

    Can someone please shed light on what they mean by returning PLC? Is dlf returning plc for all units as most units have it and in some cases it was merged in the bsp also, surprising to see builder returning plc!

  • Guys thanks for all your support to our cause. On the point in regards to PLC It is for buyers of apartments who have bought apartments facing others land.

    As per DLF if they are unable to buy others land in sector 90 by 31st December 2013 than it will refund PLC to affected buyers, since these apartments will be treated non-plc in that case.

    Hi Nitin, What happened to 10% increase in Super Area ? Did they waive that off too or they will still charge for that increase ? I guess that was the biggest ISSUE .
