The Supreme Court has asked a developer in Gurgaon to refund Rs33.38 crore to residents for failing to provide the amenities it had committed to at the time of purchase. Justices V Gopala Gowda and Adarsh Kumar Goel upheld a 19th March ruling of the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission directing the developers of Ambience Lagoon Apartments to refund 70% of the total maintenance money collected over 11 years to 345 flat-owners.
Maharashtra revenue minister, Balasaheb Thorat, launched a facility under which people can now register properties online. Mr Thorat said that the facility is applicable for housing societies with more than 200 members. “... Users will not have to go to the registration offices and can save their time. Aadhaar card number of the buyer and seller will be required for it,” he said.
