[Resolved]  Unitech — Unreasonable change in rates and conditions imposed by Unitech at time of delivery of flat.

Unreasonable change in rates and conditions imposed by Unitech at time of delivery of flat.
1. Super areas has been increased by 48-68sqft per flat without prior notice and reasons given were of new security gaurd room for each building, lift going till parking area and can you believe - water tank(I cannot think of any appartment without water tank and Unitech cannot come up other reason but this lame one), anyways either of it should NOT contribute significantly to such footage increase per flat. I have to shell out more for 48-68 sqaure feets even though actual carpet area remain the same.

2. Maintenance charges has been increased by 100%. from Rs1.25 to Rs 2.50 and advance payment to be made 2 years instead of one year as per agreement. Reasons given to us that cost of labour and diesel has increased and projected maintenance cost is no more feasible but could this warrants to 100% increase.


I have invested lifetime saving to buy Unitech property at peak market price and project has already delayed by 18 months, and above that, with these new conditions, I am feeling duped.

Subject: Unreasonable change in rates and conditions imposed by Unitech at time of delivery of flat in Unitech Horizon residential Project.

There are 18 other residents we know of (and maybe more) who have filed a formal complaint letter to Unitech about this but have not even recieved any response from them yet.

The letter sent to Unitech and the contents of the customer complaints in this regards can be seen on the link below:
http://docs.google.com/View?docid=ddt4f3mm_43c36z99gj

We request media and all other means to take this up with Unitech and help the 1100 flat owners in Unitech Horizon from being duped by a (originally thought respectable and of high standards) company of their hard earned money.

Please note that the additional charges being levied per flat are going to be int he range of 3 - 4 lacks per flat making a total of 44Crores o[censored]ndue income for Unitech through breach of contract and trust the 1100 odd purchasers have put in Unitech. This is not a small amount that can be ignored.

... and we thought Unitech Horizon was a children's special project ...

Looking forward to a response from media and all govt legal channels to take this up.

Sincerely,
Asit Verma

I Join Harish to urge all Unitech Horizon Greater Noida Flat owners to join the yahoo group "unitech_horizon_residents".

Together we can make a difference, and raise our voice strongly again unjustified charges being imposed by Unitech on flat owners.
The so called "respectable" Unitech is actually quite fraudulent. Try booking a flat with one of the newer Unitech projects in other cities and cancelling it for legitimate reasons, in accordance with the terms of the Unitech contract. It is a nightmare that has not yet ended for us. Others who have tried to cancel are also in the same boat. My advice: don't book a flat with Unitech. Instead buy it in the resale market AFTER it is complete and ready, as Unitech never delivers the flats on time.
Sounds familiar. Unitech Horizon has delayed possession by 22 months. So while they agree to adhere to the Penalty Clause in the Contract ( its too stark in any case to ignore ) they quietly increase the Mainteance from 1.25 per sq ft to 1.75. When we question Unitech, its a tale of increased charges etc. Issue is when the Complex is not even ready 100%, these increase in charges is only to cover there increased Project expenses and definitely not Maintenance.
It is a shame from Unitech Project team. Can we request to change our property to gurgaon projects.
Unitech is a Fraudester company out to loot people who want to become rich in short time.
I, and millions of others, have had the same experience as you. Just search the internet for all the scams Unitech is involved in all over the country. You'll be horrified!
I haven't had a single, positive interaction with any Unitech employee. All of them are masters at the art and craft of deceit. They stiffly deny any wrong-doing, refuse to listen to you, start accusing you instead and threatening to cancel your allotment, and continue billing you exhorbitant sums of money that are totally unjustified.
Whenever Unitech is caught in an illegal tangle, they blame the recession. When they want investments in their group of companies, then they boast about how well they are doing. They divert funds, they indulge in fraudulent practices. They have tremendous political clout (so if they 'have no money' how do they keep their godfathers happy?) which is probably why they get away with everything possible under the sun.
They're nothing but a bunch of scamsters!
Aggrieved Unitech buyers have formed groups (project-wise) in google . groups and other buyers' forums (I personally think an umbrella organization englobing ALL aggrieved Unitech buyers should be formed. We should file a PIL and ask for cancellation of their licence to build or have anything to do with the construction industry. There's strength in numbers. Join up. Perhaps one day justice will prevail.

Check out this google group which intends filing a PIL against Unitech: [protected]@googlegroups.com
Did you confirm that the water tank was the basic one or an extra one and I think security cabin is also required don't worry I have a friend who is a customer o[censored]nitech he too had similar problem, but his issues were sorted out soon, what I think wrong on the part o[censored]nitech is that they should have informed you proactively. But nothing can be done now try to negotiate on the extra built up, I am sure they will listen.

Hi Rahul,

I think the reason of increase in maintenance is reasonable. And the super built-up area increasing is also fare. I guess the super built-up increase for a water storage on terrace of the building is necessary as while constructing water storage bodies, it has to have direct support from the foundation. This could have been a reason for minor tweaks in the super built-up area.

FDR redemption overdue by 6 months

FDR number 1198230 was to mature on 06 Nov 2013. However, Unitech has still not given the funds back. Everytime they are contacted, they mention one more month before they will give the funds.
