Case filed against M/s Sweta Estates Pvt Ltd

The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) has admitted a case filed by Central Park 2 Residents Welfare Association claiming compensation to the tune of Rs. 18.9 Crores for various issues. It is likely this amount will significantly increase as more residents join the case against the builder.

M/s Sweta Estate Pvt. Ltd had announced the residential project – Central Park 2 on Sohna Road, Gurgaon in Oct 2004. While the promised delivery time of apartments was 36 months, the apartments were offered for possession during Oct 2010 to August 2011 for only 9 out of the 26 towers. Apartment owners were shocked to find that the quality of construction was extremely poor with many defects. The builder had not provided infrastructure facilities like Clubhouse, Nursery School & Crèche and Multi Purpose Halls etc. for which owners had paid. Owners were not even given compensation for the entire period of delay. In addition the builder offered possession only when the owners paid hefty escalation charges amounting to over Rs. 6 lakhs per apartment for increase in raw material cost due to delay in construction by the Builder!

Under the provisions of the Consumer Protection Act 1986, a group of consumers can come together to form a body and file a joint case. A well known Senior Counsel represented the Association and the matter was admitted in the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission. Many claims as given below are commonly faced by apartment owners and Residents Welfare Associations –

  1. Interest on delay in possession of apartment and other promised infrastructure
  2. Refund for excess Super Area charged
  3. Refund for excess Escalation Charges
  4. Refund for sale of Common Area
  5. Compensation for defects in construction

Residents of Central Park 2  hope to get some justice now.
