‘I did not get a dis­count’

HT Estates - - HTESTATES -

Iwork with a south Delhi-based com­pany and feel proud of the fact that I have bought a home for my­self at such a young age. When I in­vested in a large group hous­ing project in Noida two years ago dur­ing the Navra­tras, the de­vel­oper had held a lucky draw to of­fer dis­counts to selected cus­tomers. I was quite happy to find that my name had been an­nounced in that draw and looked for­ward to get­ting a de­cent dis­count on the ba­sic price.

Since I bought the flat on a con­struc­tion- linked plan, the de­vel­oper promised that the dis­count would be ‘ad­justed’ with the pay­ment I made for the apart­ment. How­ever, over a pe­riod of time, I no­ticed that in­stead of ad­just­ing the dis­count, the de­vel­oper de­manded more pay­ment for the apart­ment, which up­set me very much.

When I con­fronted the de­vel­oper he told me that my name had ‘in­ad­ver­tently’ been added to the list of lucky cus­tomers and that I was not go­ing to get any dis­count on the unit booked.
