The order relates to a case filed by home buyer of Supertech’s Up County project situated in Sector 17-A, Yamuna Expressway.
NEW DELHI: The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) on April 22 ordered Supertech to refund home buyer’s money with interest.
Judge VK Jain said “The home buyer is entitled to refund of the amount paid by them alongwith adequate compensation in the form of interest at the rate of 10% per annum from the date of each payment, till the date of refund.”
The order relates to a case filed by home buyer of Supertech’s Up County project situated in Sector 17-A, Yamuna Expressway. Buyer had been allotted the villa in February 2015 while the possession was to be given in March 2015 (with a grace period of six months). However the possession has not been offered till date.
Supertech contested that the construction was delayed because of the farmers challenging the land acquisition in Allahabad High Court, National Green Tribunal’s (NGT) order prohibiting the use of ground water and disruption of supply of raw materials and labours due to strikes.
The company even though submitted the completed drawings in February 2015 have not received the Occupancy Certificate (OC) from the authority.
Buyer said that it would mean that the inevitable inference is that there are some deviations/deficiencies in the project on account of which the requisite OC in respect of the allotted villa has not been issued.
The consumer forum however struck aside Supertech’s pleas and ordered them to pay a sum of Rs 25,000 as the cost of litigation to the complainant as well.
The payment is to be made within three months from the date of order i.e. April 23.
