It has been made manda­tory for de­vel­op­ers to get com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cate from the LDA be­fore hand­ing over pos­ses­sion of houses or shops to buy­ers

LUC­KNOW: The Luc­know De­vel­op­ment Au­thor­ity has started iden­ti­fy­ing com­mer­cial build­ings that do not have com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cate.

It will be manda­tory for such builders to pro­cure com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cate from the LDA and be­fore is­su­ing it the de­vel­op­ment au­thor­ity will make sure that the de­vel­oper has ful­filled all norms and the build­ing has come up as per the ap­proved map.

Un­der the UP Real Es­tate (Reg­u­la­tion and De­vel­op­ment) Act (RERA), it is manda­tory for builders to ob­tain com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cate from the de­vel­op­ment au­thor­ity, but till date, own­ers of ma­jor­ity of the multi storey res­i­den­tial apart­ments and com­mer­cial build­ings in the city do not have this cer­tifi­cate. They are hand­ing over pos­ses­sion of flats and shops to buy­ers without ful­fill­ing this manda­tory pro­ce­dure.

The LDA’s role is to make sure that the de­vel­oper has car­ried out con­struc­tion work ac­cord­ing to the ap­proved map and has ful­filled all prom­ises made to home buy­ers. If any con­di­tion re­mains un­ful­filled, the de­vel­op­ment au­thor­ity has the right to deny com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cate to the builder.

“It has been made manda­tory for de­vel­op­ers to get com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cate from the LDA be­fore hand­ing over pos­ses­sion of houses or shops to buy­ers,” said PN Singh, LDA vice chair­man.

The de­vel­op­ment au­thor­ity also ex­e­cutes a large num­ber of hous­ing and com­mer­cial projects all over the city and the rule ap­plies to its own projects too..

Ac­cord­ing to LDA of­fi­cials, this ex­er­cise (manda­tory com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cate) will, to some ex­tent, help the de­vel­op­ment au­thor­ity in pro­tect­ing home buy­ers’ in­ter­ests.

In the state cap­i­tal, around 62 home buy­ers in Parsv­nath Planet, Gomti Na­gar, have al­ready moved the Na­tional Con­sumer Dis­putes Re­dres­sal Com­mis­sion, New Delhi, against the de­vel­oper Parsv­nath Planet.

“We have de­manded ac­tion against the de­vel­oper (Parsv­nath Planet) for non-com­pli­ance of prom­ises made to al­lot­tees. We have also in­dicted the LDA for is­su­ing par­tial com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cate to the builder de­spite the fact that the project is still in­com­plete,” said Alok Singh, a res­i­dent of the Parsv­nath Planet, who is spear­head­ing the ag­i­ta­tion against the de­vel­oper.

In all, there are 540 flats in Parsv­nath Planet hous­ing scheme.

Al­lot­tees have also ac­cused the LDA of is­su­ing par­tial com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cate to seven out of 10 tow­ers of Parsv­nath Planet, Vib­huti Khand, Gomti Na­gar, project way back in 2015 de­spite the fact that a large num­ber of flats in all these tow­ers are still in­com­plete.
