After a complaint by a group of home-buyers the chief judicial magistrate has issued orders to book the directors of Gayatri Hospitality and Realcon Limited-a real estate company in Noida for fraud, forgery and cheating.

My client Awasthi booked a flat in Gayatri Aura of 1,195 square feet in Gayatri Aura in the year 2011 and paid Rs 16 lakh. Consequently, against repeated meetings and commitments by the builders, on the plot of land no construction has been started.

Nearly 1,000 residential units had been sold by the builder, Awasthi claimed. ” All these families had invested their hard money into the project and are still awaiting their homes” he said. ” In 2011 and 2012 people have made 30% to 90% payments across their bookings. He also added that even the ground has not been excavated by the developer.
