GURGAON: More than three months after the district consumer forum directed a city-based property developer to pay as compensation nearly Rs 67 lakh to 44 flat buyers, the residents have decided to move the court again next week for execution of the order as the builder has not yet complied with it. 

The case dates back to 2008 when the 44 flat owners in Cosmos residential complex in Gurgaon's Palam Vihar area had moved the consumer court against the developer, Cosmos Builders and Promoters Ltd, for poor construction work, including uneven flooring, bad quality of wood used in doors and windows, inferior marble stones, missing toiler seat covers etc. 

The forum had deputed a local commission which inspected the residential complex last year and filed a detailed report on September 12, 2013, pointing out the anomalies in the construction. 

On May 22, 2014, the consumer court ordered the developer to pay the compensation Rs one lakh each to the 44 flat buyers, along with an interest of nine per cent per annum for the last six years. The total amount comes to around Rs 67 lakh. Three months on, the residents have decided to move the court again next week for execution of the order as they claim that the builder has not yet paid them the compensation. Krishan Kapoor, the president of the Cosmos residents welfare association (RWA), said: "We will approach the consumer forum in a couple of days for the execution of the order as the builder has failed to follow it." 

However, when contacted, a senior official of Cosmos Developers told TOI that the company has moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court against the consumer court's order, and the residents would soon be issued notices. 

But the residents refused to buy the theory. "There was one month to file the appeal. How can they file an appeal now?" asked OP Gupta, general secretary of Cosmos RWA.
