‘Parking space must be provided to CHS members who are charged’

The South Mumbai District Consumer Forum (SMDCF) held that, if a cooperative housing society (CHS) levies and recovers parking charges from a member, it must provide parking space to him/ her. According to the complaint which the SMDCF was adjudicating, Yogesh Shah and his mother Asha bought two flats in the 21-storey Vardhaman Heights in Byculla in December 2007. Vardhaman Estate Corporation assured them of parking spaces for their vehicles. After the CHS was formed, the managing committee, allegedly acting at the behest of Vardhaman Estate Corporation, did not allot parking slots to them.

 

The Shahs then approached the Forum seeking allotment of two parking spaces. The CHS did not respond to the complaint. Vardhaman Estate Corporation contested the complaint and stated that the CHS had been formed and parking spaces had been allotted to the members.

 

Finally, the Forum held that a member of a CHS was a consumer under the Consumer Protection Act 1986 and could seek relief. It, however, dismissed the complaint against Vardhaman Estate Corporation. The Forum directed the CHS to allot two parking spaces to the Shahs and pay them Rs10,000 as compensation for mental agony and Rs5,000 towards litigation costs.

Home-buyers Take Builder Devisha Infrastructure to Court

Agroup of 25-30 home-buyers, who have been waiting for a housing project in Kharghar in Navi Mumbai to take off for four years, have decided to approach the courts. The builder, Devisha Infrastructure Pvt Ltd, told buyers that administrative delays have hamstrung the project. Home-buyers , however, are not satisfied with the answer.

 

In 2010, the developer had collected 10% of the flat’s total cost as booking amount but work on the plot had not commenced. The agitated buyers met the Mumbai police commissioner KL Prasad and lodged a complaint. According to the home-buyers, Mr Prasad suggested that they approach the court for relief.
