Gurugram: About 100 buyers of the Mahira Home project in Sector 68 of Gurugram staged a protest on Sunday at the site, demanding to be told about delivery times.

The protest started at 10 a.m. and lasted two hours. The demonstrators, including women and young children, shouted slogans and demanded government intervention. The majority of them have invested all their savings in the project and are now simultaneously paying rent and an equivalent monthly installment (EMI).

“We want the builder to give us precise deadlines for the delivery of our apartments. We also want a written commitment on this,” said Dhruv Kapoor, a homebuyer, who participated in the protest.

Protesters also said other projects where work began in 2018 are now nearing completion, but work is stalled on the Mahindra project as the license was revoked. “The authorities should have checked the documents at the beginning or canceled the license much earlier. Now we have made full payment, and there is no guarantee that the project will be completed soon,” said Kamal Kumar, another buyer.

“These apartments were expected in August. We want the authorities to thoroughly investigate the matter and ensure justice,” another buyer said.

Asked about the matter, officials from the Department of Land Use Planning (DTCP) said they had already transferred land ownership to the revenue records and were working on a plan to complete the project as a matter of priority. “All steps are being taken to ensure that this project is completed as planned,” said RS Bhath, district planner (app).

A spokesperson for the promoter said they had already appealed the case to the higher appeals authority and the case is expected to be heard on May 26. buyers,” he said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
