Massive protest by home buyers of Amrapali group
Noida: Irked over the unending delay in getting possession of flats, scores of home buyers from various residential and commercial projects of Amrapali Group staged a massive protest at DND toll plaza on Sunday morning. Over three hundred home buyers formed a human chain and raised slogans against the government and the builder.
The home buyers demanded that the government should provide fund to the NBCC to complete the unfinished projects and should also provide relief on their bank loan, which they took to buy flats. The demand to send the directors of Amrapali group to jail was also put forward and suggestion was made that authorities should take over charge on incomplete buildings.
"We are paying EMIs against loans for those flats which are not yet delivered to us not they seem to be delivered in the near future. Since the NBCC has accepted to restart and complete all the projects, it's now the duty of government to provide fund and help us in getting our homes" said a home buyer.
They further alleged government for not taking any action in their favour even after the construction at all the builder's projects had been left stranded for the past many years. They also threatened the state and central government, that they will not cast their votes in the upcoming elections in 2019.
"Since the Honourable Supreme Court of India started hearing our complaints against the Amrapali Group, nearly one and a half year back, we had stopped our day-to-day protest and were hoping that the matter would be solved soon. But when nothing concrete happened in the matter, we are again forced to stage various protests to fight for our right" said one of the protesters.
Home buyers have further warned to stage much bigger protests every 15 days in both Delhi and Noida and will also march to parliament to stage a protest in next fifteen days.
"We have been hoping that the government would take over the project or will provide fund to the NBCC to complete it. But as we are left with no option other than protests, we will intensify our fight for right and next we have planned to stage a protest outside the Parliament after 15 days" said K K Kaushal, a home buyer.
