Par­tial com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cates

HT Estates - - FRONT PAGE -

What is a part oc­cu­pancy cer­tifi­cate? Par­tial oc­cu­pa­tion cer­tifi­cate (OC) is granted to large projects be­ing de­vel­oped in phases or blocks. Once a phase is com­plete, the au­thor­i­ties after in­spect­ing the build­ing grant a par­tial OC. Once the en­tire project is com­plete, par­tial OC is re­placed with a com­mon OC for the en­tire project Un­cer­tainty over com­ple­tion: Many projects ex­ist in NCR for which de­vel­op­ers have failed to pro­vide ameni­ties promised to buy­ers. If the project in­volves sev­eral build­ings, there is no guar­an­tee when the builder will get the com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cate for the en­tire project or a par­tial cer­tifi­cate for a par­tic­u­lar tower What should buy­ers do? It would not be ad­vis­able for buy­ers to take pos­ses­sion if a builder has part com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cate as all fa­cil­i­ties would in all prob­a­bil­ity not be in place. A buyer once RERA kicks in will also get penalty for late de­liv­ery Lifes­pan of a sanc­tion plan: It is only for a pe­riod of five years, which at best can be ex­tended for two years along with some fine. The en­tire project has to be com­pleted by the builder within six to seven years No-ob­jec­tion cer­tifi­cates: When the con­struc­tion work of a project starts, the builder ob­tains no-ob­jec­tion cer­tifi­cates from au­thor­i­ties con­cerned for es­sen­tial sup­plies such as water and elec­tric­ity. Th­ese NOCs state that the con­struc­tion be­ing un­der­taken is within the am­bit of law. A com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cate is proof that the build­ing has been con­structed in ac­cor­dance with the pre­scribed rules, and that all the con­cerned au­thor­i­ties have cleared the project
