The Noida authority on Thursday said it had issued a notice to the Amrapali group, asking it to demolish illegal commercial structures in the residential complex or face legal consequences.
The authority’s action comes after residents alleged that the Amrapali group had done constructions in violation of the sanctioned map and the Noida authority did not stop it then.
“A committee of the planning department conducted an inspection at the site on April 12. The committee found that the construction is in violation of the sanctioned map. Therefore, we have issued notice to the builder. If they do not demolish it in next seven days or submit a satisfactory reply, we will take strict legal action against the violation,” said Shishir Singh, additional chief executive officer (ACEO) of the Noida authority.
The homebuyers in their complaint alleged that the builder had promised them a park named ‘Rose Valley’, where he has built shops in violation of rules.
On April 10, the Noida authority gave a month’s time to Amrapali to address all issues faced by the homebuyers in the Zodiac housing project. In the meeting, the authority had promised the buyers that if the commercial area is found to be illegal, it will be demolished.
“As per the promise, we sent the team that said the homebuyers’ allegations were correct,” said the ACEO.
The builder had launched the Zodiac project in 2007 with a promise to deliver it by 2011. But even after five years of delay, the builder is unable to finish the project.
