Ansal builders lands in soup

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, November 7

Ansal builders landed in the soup due non-compliance with an order passed by the State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission.

The State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission, Chandigarh, has directed the Mohali Deputy Commissioner to auction properties of the builders and recover the decretal amount and deposit the same with the commission and submit a report on or before January 22, 2021, for further proceedings.

Advocate Narender Yadav, who filed the case on the behalf of Girish Kumar Aggarwal, an NRI, said the commission further directed the firm to make the entire payment of the court decree amount, along with interest, by way of a demand draft to the decree holder, failing which a coercive process shall follow.

Advocate Yadav said: “Girish Kumar had booked a flat in a project developed by Ansal Lotus Pvt Ltd on the Kharar-Landran road in 2014.”

The builder had agreed to hand over the possession of the flat in 2018, but it was delayed and the builder abandoned the tower at the base level.

On June 13, 2019, a complainant was filed in this regard and the commission had directed the firm to refund the complete amount, along with 12 per cent interest, in 30 days. However, the firm failed to do the needful.

The complainant filed an execution petition and claimed Rs21-lakh compensation. The state commission, on January 24, directed the firm to make the payment in 10 days.

Accordingly, the Mohali Deputy Commissioner was directed to attach the project concerned of the judgment debtors and appoint a receiver. The Chandigarh Deputy Commissioner was also directed to attach the registered office of the judgment debtors situated at M/s Ansal Lotus Melange Projects Pvt Ltd, Sector 9-C, Chandigarh, and appoint a receiver to prepare an inventory of all articles lying in the said office and take them into possession and submit their approximate value.

On March 20, after the firm failed to pay the compensation, the Kharar Tehsildar attached the project and submit a report to state commission. On October 26, the state commission directed the Mohali Deputy Commissioner to auction the attached property and recover the decretal amount.
