Maharashtra flat buyers can now file a police complaint against builders

The state police have directed police stations across Maharashtra to register complaints against errant builders who cheat flat buyers and violate building norms. The circular said complaints include builders failing to hand over possession on time to buyers or developers who deliver apartments without procuring the mandatory building occupation certificate. It also mentioned builders who build beyond the sanctioned plans or those who build illegally. The circular also sought action against developers who accept 20% of the flat price but do not register the agreement or those who fail to form a housing society within the stipulated four months after handing over flats to buyers.
