Residents of Amrapali projects like Sapphire, Silicon City, Zodiac, and Leisure Park, who have moved into their new homes were struggling with basic amenities like power and water connections, fire safety and functional lifts for several years. But now these problems are planned to be fixed and a fresh tripartite agreement to be signed between the Noida or Greater Noida authorities, NBCC and the homebuyer.
This agreement will allow the completion certificates to be issued, which would, in turn, pave the way for all amenities to be provided to the societies. The societies where construction has otherwise been completed should get completion certificates from the Noida and Greater Noida authorities within a month.
Earlier this week the public sector construction giant, NBCC, to complete Amrapali’s projects, the Supreme Court even ordered completion certificates to be issued irrespective of the dues that Amrapali owes to the Noida and Greater Noida authorities. The water and electricity departments have been asked to provide the necessary connections.
Around 7,000 residents in multiple Amrapali projects are at present living without completion certificates.
Amrapali has handed over keys and no-objection certificates to them after they cleared all their dues. Even though it did not fully complete the buildings, leaving gaps in amenities like water supply, sewage treatment, fire safety, and lifts. One of the conditions of the completion certificate is that all amenities in a project must be in place.
“According to the Supreme Court order, residents already in possession of their flats but without completion and occupation certificates would be given the completion certificates after NBCC fills the existing gaps. A tripartite agreement between buyers, the authorities and NBCC would then be made,” the advocate representing a section of buyers of Sapphire Phase I at the Supreme Court.
