NCDRC asks Unitech to refund Rs 41 lakh to buyer
NEW DELHI: The apex consumer commission has asked real estate firm Unitech Ltd to refund over Rs 41 lakh to a buyer, who had booked a property in one of its projects, saying the realtor had indulged in unfair trade practice.
The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) has asked the company to refund Rs 41,15,320, to Haryana resident D K Mathur, saying "the allottee cannot be expected to wait for possession of the apartment for an indefinite period".
It also noted that the firm was not in a position to hand over the possession of the apartment.
The bench headed by Presiding Member Ajit Bharihoke also awarded Rs 10,000 as litigation cost to Mathur and said that the firm had failed to hand over the possession even after eight years of promised delivery date.
According to the complaint, in 2006, Mathur had paid over Rs 41 lakh and booked an apartment in Unitech Horizon, a residential project of the firm in Alistonia Estate at Greater Noida in Uttar Pradesh.
