Builder, Nilesh Patel, Directed To Pay Rs8 Lakh for Four-year Delay
The Maharashtra State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission directed a builder, Nilesh Patel, to pay Rs8.3 lakh for a four-year delay in handing over redeveloped property to a Mulund resident, Bhikanrao Kulkarni. 
 
In 1997, Nilesh Patel signed a deal with Mr Kulkarni to redevelop his 2,000 sq ft property and hand it over in two years. Due to the delay, Mr Patel agreed to pay Mr Kulkarni Rs15,000 for every extra month. He handed over the property in 2003. The Commission said that Mr Patel had breached the deal conditions but there was no deficiency of service. “There is inordinate delay in giving out the developed property for which the complainant suffered mental pain and agony,” the Commission said.

Measurement Certificates To Be Made Mandatory for Registering New Homes
Maharashtra government is planning to issue a circular making measurement certificates from the legal metrology department mandatory for registering new homes. The government feels that this will reduce the discrepancies between the promised and actual size of flats and reduce frauds by builders.
 
The measurement, in sq metres and not sq feet, will be done on the carpet area to do away with the ambiguity caused by terms like built-up area and super built-up area.

The penalty is for failing to deliver two plots booked by them. They had booked the plots in Silver City, Diggi Road, Jaipur, through U-turn Housing and paid the instalments. But the developer had no plots to sell and no allotment letter was issued even after the complainants issued three cheques.
 
“The opposing party had in fact no plots for sale and collected money on false advertisement and assurances,” said the forum.
