DELHI: Following a TOI report on large-scale violation of UP Apartment Act by developers, Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) has issued notices to over 30 realty firms. GDA has asked developers to submit a declaration in which they have to explain details of their projects, including plot size, number of floors and flats to be constructed, land title, facilities to be offered, etc.

The authority will later crosscheck the details and examine whether construction is going on as per necessary approvals or not.

GDA officer on special duty, DP Singh, said so far over 150 projects are being constructed in Ghaziabad, out of which 55 are in Indirapuram. “We have also issued public notices. If developers do not comply with the order then an FIR will be lodged. The Authority can take such action under Section 25(2) of UP Apartment Act,” Singh said.

“Once we will get all the details, we will examine the facts and reveal defaulting developers. This information will be useful to buyers so they can check the legal and technical status of projects before investing their money,” said another senior GDA official.

Fed up with the callous attitude of developers and officials of the authorities, a few residents had moved Allahabad high court for relief. The court cracked down heavily on accused developers and authorities and directed them to ensure proper implementation of the Act, which is meant to protect the interest of homebuyers.

As per the UP Apartment Act, developers have to share details of their projects within one month of approval of their building plans so that buyers are not misguided and deprived of their rights.
