AURANGABAD: The city police chief on Tuesday issued an ultimatum to a builder asking him to either handover the flats to the buyers between July and October or face action. The extended deadline was issued after an hour-long discussion at the commissioner of police’s chamber on Tuesday afternoon.
The builder, RK Constros, had started construction of 472 flats near Cambridge School on Jalna Road in 2011, and was supposed to hand over the flats to the buyers within 18 months. But, the work was stalled due to a friction over the delay in meeting the deadline by the builder and failure by many of the customers to clear the outstanding amount.
About 70 of the customers met commissioner of police Amitesh Kumar on Monday, demanding action against the builder who had allegedly broken his promise before the police chief in last October.
On Tuesday, the customers approached Kumar for another round of discussion with the builder.
RK Constros’ Sameer Mehta told media, “We have signed an MoU with the customers at the CP’s office and have promised to deliver the flats in four instalments. One set of flats would be delivered by July end, and following sets would be delivered by August end, September end and October end.
Kumar said, “The economic offences wing has been asked to take down everything in writing and the violators of the written assurance would face action.
Sources said that the police chief has asked the customers to clear the outstanding amount before seeking possession of the flats, as a number of customers are said to have defaulted on payment.
