Hundreds of flat owners in Emaar-MGF’s Emerald Hills residential project in Gurgaon’s Sector 65 held a demonstration outside the developer’s corporate office in Sikanderpur Friday to protest against the alleged delay in possession of flats.

“The project was floated in 2008… and construction started two years after that. As per the agreement, we were supposed to get possession in 2013, but three years later, we have still not got the flats,” said Sumit Agarwal, one of the owners.

Led by the Emerald Hills Owners Welfare Association, the owners demanded immediate possession of their flats. They said they have made several complaints to Gurgaon authorities, urging them to look into the matter, but in vain.

The protesters claimed that a complaint was handed over to Deputy Commissioner T L Satyaprakash in August last year and another memorandum was submitted to him on May 9 this year.

The alleged delay in completion of the project has caused immense suffering, said the flat owners, adding that some of them were being forced to pay both EMI and rent.

“We continue to plead with authorities… we would like to keep our faith in the system and the government… all we ask is Emaar-MGF deliver our apartments and compensate us for the financial losses suffered by our members,” said Rama Chawla, president of the Emerald Hills Owners Welfare Association.

Responding to the flat owners’ claims, a spokesperson of Emaar-MGF said, “The Emerald Hills project is a large township of almost 200 acres. The development works are being carried out in phases and the project will be completed and handed over in phases to ensure seamless delivery. As a matter of fact, the company has already started offering possession for a phase of plots.”

He added, “The company is in regular touch with its customers, and we are also uploading regular construction updates for the project on our website, which are also shared with the customers in a transparent manner. Moreover, customers are also kept abreast proactively through various media of communication on the progress and the challenges.”
