If a builder does not pay heed to your objections, take legal recourse immediately by sending a legal notice, followed by filing a case.
Group action: The Unitech homebuyers formed a group and approached the authorities together. Many other homebuyers, who were not the part of initial group, joined in due course. A large number of complainants helps push the case.
Proper documentation: If you are in a similar situation, gather all the facts and documents starting from the advertisement brochures, and down to the booking receipts, all details of all payments, any letter sent by the developer, signed agreements, emails exchanged, photographs, and anything that can strengthen your case. These documents help in drafting a strong case.

EOW’s expertise in this field means that cases get processed faster. Unitech homebuyers formed a group and filed a case jointly, which was referred to the EOW. But this does not happen with all the cases.
