SC will hear case against Unitech builder

New Delhi [India], Jan 12 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Thursday will the hear the plea filed against Unitech builders in connection of the delays in allotting flats to its buyers.

Earlier, the top court vacated the stay in various high courts and consumer courts across the country against the real estate company.

The apex court has fixed January 11 as the next date of hearing the case.

The Delhi High Court had earlier stayed the proceedings against the company.

More than 100 buyers of flats had knocked the doors of the apex court seeking return of their money, in which they said that they did not get their flats in time as a result of which they approached the apex court for a direction and order against the real estate company.

On October 19, the Supreme Court ordered to disburse Rs. 15 crore deposited by the Unitech builders in the court's registry to the investors on a pro rata basis after the builder failed to complete its projects on time.

The apex court directed to refund the money to 38 buyers as buyers refuse to rely on the assurance of possession by 2017 and has directed Unitech to deposit Rs. two crore more in registry in the next four weeks.

The investors will have to deposit their relevant documents to obtain the money.

The top court had also told the Unitech developers to live up to the terms of its contract in the vistas project in Gurgaon.

In August, the Supreme Court pulled up Unitech, which had been asked to deposit Rs. five crore by August 5, 2016, for delaying the completion of a high-end residential project Burgundy that the real estate firm had launched on the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway, saying it will be liable to contempt of court if it violates the settlement terms.

The apex court said that the chairman and the managing director of the company will be liable for contempt of court.

"Buyers can directly move the Supreme Court for any violation of settlement terms so that Companies like Unitech learn a lesson," the apex court observed.

The real estate firm told the top court that it is giving two plots each to three flat allottees in Burgundy towers (Noida) who had not been given possession. (ANI)
