CCI again caught DLF for imposing unfair conditions on flat owners.

CCI has again accused DLF of imposing unfair conditions on home buyers on its high-end residential project Magnolia in Gurgaon. For this, Magnolia Flat Owners’ Association had filed a complaint against DLF Universal, Haryana Urban Development Authority and the Director Town and Country Planning, Haryana, with the Competition Commission of India (CCI).

In the report, the CCI director general found that DLF has issued allotment letters, and apartment buyers’ agreements were signed even before it got approvals from the town planner. Also, the builder has revised the building plans and applied for increasing the height of the towers after collecting 90% of the money from the buyers, and two months after the original date of delivery promised by the company.

CCI had also found DLF guilty of abusing its position at the Park Place Project in Gurgaon, where they asked the company to cease and desist from imposing unfair conditions on buyers. The order had also directed DLF to suitably modify the unfair conditions imposed on existing buyers within three months.

Drish Paul, the president of the Magnolia Flat Owners’ Association, said that “Many people are living on rent, waiting for apartments to be handed over. We would eventually like to get compensated for the loss due to the delay in completion of the project.”

In a similar order in August 2011,CCI had slapped a fine of 630 crore on DLF for unfair practices, abuse of market dominance and disregard for consumer rights in its Belaire residential project in Gurgaon.
