Wakad, 16th January 2024: A case has been registered against well-known builder Khemchand Uttamchand Bhojwan of Pyramid Developers, along with First Developers and their partners, and the landowner of a housing project in Pimpri. The complaint, filed by Dayanand Rawalnath Patil, alleges cheating and treachery in connection with the purchase of flats in The Nook Housing Society, Tathawade.
Pimpri-Chinchwad is witnessing a surge in construction and building projects. Unfortunately, this growth has been accompanied by an increase in complaints from flat holders who feel they have been deceived by builders. The recent case against Pyramid Developers highlights the challenges faced by citizens in the region.
The complaint filed at Wakad Police Station accuses the builder of promising amenities such as a banquet hall, skating rink, and badminton court, which were outlined in the purchase deed. However, these promised facilities were not provided, despite the collection of maintenance costs from flat holders. The sewage treatment plant, crucial for the housing project, was allegedly established at a location different from the approved site.
Furthermore, the builder is accused of not accounting for the maintenance fees collected from each flat holder, amounting to around 50 thousand rupees for two years. The possession of the flats was not granted by the agreement, and an occupancy certificate has not been obtained. While the society has been registered, the transfer of land and building ownership to the society remains incomplete.
A case has been registered at Wakad Police Station, covering the period from March 3, 2016, to January 14, 2024. The accused builder is currently at large and has not been arrested. The police are investigating the matter, and further updates are expected as the case progresses.
