Akhilesh Yadav, UP Chief Minister


NOIDA: Representatives of NEFOWA (Noida Extension Flat Owners Welfare Association) met Uttar Pradesh urban development minister Azam Khan on Monday and presented him a list of complaints about upcoming real estate projects in Greater Noida and Noida.

NEFOWA president Abhishek Kumar said members had a detailed discussion with Khan. "He gave us a good hearing. We got a chance to express our concerns directly and the minister assured us he will take up our issues with chief minister, Akhilesh Yadav."

"Our issues included the recent demands for extra payments by some builders, changes in layout plans, delayed delivery and allied issues," said Kumar.

He added this was the first time that a flat buyers' group approached the minister directly on such issues.

"Flat buyers are tormented by the builders. We informed the minister that pace of the construction is extremely slow. As a result, handover of possession of the projects in the area had been badly delayed, which has led buyers to suspect that the builders may not have acquired all necessary approvals from different authorities," said NEFOWA co-founder Indrish Gupta.

"Despite the enactment of the UP apartment act 2010, for the last three years, none of the builders are following its rules. Builders change their layout plans without taking consent of buyers, applying for extra FAR and raising height of buildings, and building extra towers on projects that have already been sold, all of which violate norms of the act," Abhishek Kumar said.

"The minister has assured us he will direct Greater Noida Authority to keep watch on the problems faced by flat buyers in the region," he added.
