As many as 100 homebuyers protested for two hours outside the house of Managing Director of Today Homes and Infrastructure Private Limited over delay in possession of flats in an apartment complex in Gurgaon’s Sector 73.

According to protesters, the project — Today Canary Greens — was launched in 2010 and construction began in 2011, with most of the builder-buyer agreements being signed that year. Buyers were promised possession by 2014 but two years after the date set for possession, the construction of flats remains incomplete.

“People have put their savings into these flats, some of us have taken home loans. Now we are all paying rent and EMIs unnecessarily… Construction has also not been happening at the expected pace, and there is no hope of getting the apartments in the near future,” said Basant Bhanuka, who bought a flat in the complex.

The complex consists of 8 towers that have over 400 flats altogether. Despite repeated attempts, officials from Today Homes and Infrastructure Private Limited could not be reached for comment.

The buyers made a list of five demands — determination of a possession date for each tower, monthly update on the construction work done, opening an ESCROW account, payment of EDC/IDC to get the construction license, and payment of 12 per cent compensation on a monthly basis for delay to buyers.
