7 months into SC’s Manesar order, buyers still await relief thumbnail
GURUGRAM: Almost seven months have passed since the Supreme Court delivered its ruling in the Manesar land scam case. But the Haryana State Industry and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) is yet to verify claims of affected homebuyers, because of which the handover of plots and flats is stuck.

DLF , one of the companies which has projects in the affected area, is ready to hand over the first batch of flats, said sources.

In its order dated March 12, 2018, the Apex court had said claims should be verified by the appointed government agency, within two months from the date of judgement. Yet, seven months later, the process is yet to be completed. “After 10 years of wait, we were hopeful the SC judgement would expedite handover of flats. However, verification alone has taken six months, and even if the developer is ready to hand over the flats, we aren’t sure when we will get our homes,” said Mukul Bajaj, who has bought a home in DLF Express Greens.

Express Greens is one of the projects developed on the affected land, and has 1,200 buyers with flats in their roster. The project is almost ready, and sources within DLF said the company is ready to hand over the first batch of flats, as soon as they receive some approvals from HSIIDC.

“DLF is apparently ready to hand over around 100 flats to owners whose properties are registered. The modalities of such a handover are unclear as HSIIDC is yet to acknowledge claims submitted by buyers in April in response to notice. This delay of over seven months since the SC ruling, and with no clear end in sight, buyers are frustrated paying rent and EMI, 10 years after the flats were supposed to be delivered,” said Vikram Kataria, another buyer.
