Unitech Kolkata — Delay in possession
KaKajal Das on Jun 2, 2011
I am an NRI planning to move back to Kolkata from the USA. To settle my family in a decent housing complex we booked an apartment at Unitech/Uniworld Kolkata in April 2006 with a commitment for possession by summer 2009. We have already paid 95% of the amount and last 5% pending which is due during possession. Till today we do not have the apartment, neither there is any clear communication on delays or possession from Unitech. Each time I call/email end up getting a vague answer or delivery commitment which never happens.
Recent media about the company clearly indicates Unitech's bigger plans on looting their buyers. To build credibility and trust among buyers Unitech cleverly offered on the agreement to pay a compensation for delays @ Rs 2/sq feet. My decision for buying Unitech apartment was not due to Rs 2 compensation but to won a place for our move.
We live outside the country, therefore, don't have the leverage to visit their site frequently, now only dependent on communication from few buyers who've also bought in the same project and formed a group for discussion.
Due to Unitech's delay we had to take several losses and make changes in our family which is extremely inconvenient.
I would highly appreciate and be grateful if someone can provide some directions on how to deal with this situation.
