Thane Consumer Forum Sentences Developer to One Year Jail

The Thane District Consumer Dispute Redressal Forum recently sentenced a Vasai-based developer, who failed to abide by the Forum’s orders in 2008, to a year’s imprisonment and a fine of Rs10,000. It also stated that if the developer fails to pay the fine, the sentence will be extended by another six months.

 

Patricia Vinekar had booked a flat in a building being constructed by developer, Bhimsen Sohanlal Bagga. As the builder failed to hand over possession of the flat, Patricia approached the Forum in 2008. The Forum ordered the builder to hand over possession of the flat and to pay the complainant Rs20,000 towards mental agony and Rs5,000 as litigation costs.

 

The developer appealed against the Forum’s order before the state consumer commission, the national consumer commission and even before the Supreme Court of India, but his plea was turned down at every step. Finally, Patricia approached the Thane Forum pleading for harsher punishment for the developer for failing to abide with the orders.

UK Homes Private Limited To Pay for Delay in Handing Over Possession of Plot

The District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum, Chandigarh, has directed UK Homes Private Limited to pay Rs50,000 as compensation for unfair trade practices and deficient services to Manimajra-based residents.

 

Following a complaint filed by Satish Gour and Dinesh Gautam, residents of Modern Housing Complex, the Forum directed the real estate developer to refund Rs6 lakh paid as booking amount along with 12% interest.

 

The Forum, presided by Rajan Dewan, held that “The failure on the part of the developer to hand over the possession of the plot in question within the stipulated period or refunding the amount thereof to the complainants, despite requests, certainly amounts to deficiency in service and unfair trade practice.” UK Homes Private Limited would also have to pay Rs7,000 as litigation cost to the complainants. As nobody appeared on behalf of UK Homes Private Limited, the case was taken up ex parte.
