Noida Builders To Be Booked Under Gangsters Act

Published on 07 May 2018 by Shivi

On Saturday, the Gautam Buddh Nagar district administration directed the UP police to starting booking builders in Noida and Greater Noida for deceiving home buyers and ignoring the bylaws. The builders can be booked under the provisions of the UP Gangsters and Anti-Social Activities (Prevention) Act, 1986.

District Magistrate B.N. Singh wrote a letter to the SSP and said that some builders are defrauding people by using illegal means. The letter stated that the builders can be booked under the Gangsters Act in the following cases:

  1. If the builder has sold or allotted a flat to more than one person at one time in which the second allotment or sale is illegal

  2. If the builder has shown/constructed or sold units by wrongly increasing the units approved as per authority laws. These units cannot be legal according to the authority by-laws.

If an FIR is registered against the builder, the investigation must be completed within time. If a charge sheet is being framed in the cases, the process under the UP Gangsters and Anti-Social Activities (Prevention) Act, 1986 must be initiated in the final charge sheet.

Under Section 14A of the Gangsters Act, the district magistrate can order attachment of any property movable or immovable belonging to the builder. The police announced that FIRs against builders in 24 housing projects in Noida and Greater Noida will be registered soon at the police stations concerned. The list of projects included 10,130 residential flats and 39 commercial units.

In addition, a RERA complaint can be filed by a home buyer against the builder for reasons like delay in property possession, unauthorised construction, delay in property registration, etc.
