Mumbai builder fined Rs7 lakh for deficiency in services

The builder has been asked by the state consumer forum to repay money collected from society members towards formation of the society, sewerage taxes and other costs incurred since 1998

The Maharashtra State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission has directed Liberty Investments Pvt Ltd to pay Rs7.40 lakh to a Mumbai-based co-operative housing society (CHS), for failing to fulfill statutory obligations of forming a CHS and procuring various important documents.

 

The builder has also been ordered to refund Rs5.47 lakh that the society members had paid towards formation of the society, sewerage taxes and other costs incurred over the years. Additionally, the builder will also have to procure the occupation certificate and execute a deed of conveyance in favour of the society within a period of four months.

 

Since the builder failed to form a CHS in 1998, members of Nadia Apartment CHS Ltd, located in Santa Cruz, were compelled to form their own co-operative housing society.

Does it really work? I have my builder absconding for ages & it took me 6 years to fight with my Society members to get my Membership. Even now, they are not considering us as members. We still do not have OC & other basic amenities. Wonder if really such a thing can be done against the builder.

UK airports on terror alert over ‘stealth bomb’ attack

US officials believe two terror networks in Syria and Yemen have teamed up to target flights bound for America

Security has been tightened across all UK airports over US intelligence reports pointing towards a 'credible threat' to trans-Atlantic flights being targeted with a new generation 'stealth bomb'’.

 

According to media reports from London, US officials believe two terror networks in Syria and Yemen have teamed up to target flights bound for America.

 

UK transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin confirmed the measures, saying they were being taken to protect the public.

 

The UK government is not giving any details about what these security changes actually are, but they have not ruled out longer queues at security.

 

The security changes are not expected to cause big delays at Heathrow — one of the busiest hubs for flights to the US, BBC reported.

 

Other European airports with direct flights to the US are also stepping up security in a move apparently coordinated to minimise alarm.

 

British Prime Minister David Cameron’s spokesperson said: “There are terror organisations around the world that seek to do the UK, its citizens, citizens of many other countries, including our western allies, harm. We need to always be vigilant to situations that can develop.”

 

Jeh Johnson, Washington’s homeland security secretary, said that the measures had been taken in response to “the global threat environment’’.

 

The US had shared “recent and relevant information with our foreign allies”, he said.

 

“We will work to ensure these necessary steps pose as few disruptions to travellers as possible. We are sharing recent and relevant information with our foreign allies and are consulting the aviation industry. The changes will be made in the upcoming days,” Johnson said in a statement.

 

However, the actual terrorism threat level in the UK remains the same, at substantial, which is the middle of the five threat levels and means that an attack is a strong possibility.
