Residents continue with their hunger strike demanding arrests of the Solomons
Gurugram, March 8 (Delhi Crown): Gurugram Deputy Commissioner Nishant Yadav has stopped builders “Chintels’ from selling their apartments in as many as seven projects in the millennium city.
The order, which came late on Monday, assumes significance in the aftermath of February 10 vertical collapse in Tower-D of the Chintels Paradiso housing society in Sector-109 killing two women residents and injuring a few others.
The order is seen as an attempt to ‘penalise’ the builder.
The seven projects of Chintels Paradiso – Chintels Paradiso, Chintels Serenity, Chintels Corporate Parks, Sobha City, International City, and ATS Kocoon, are located in Sectors 109, 114, 108, 106, along with the Dwarka Expressway.
These projects are owned by four different entities – Chintels India Ltd, Chintels Exports Pvt. Ltd., Ashok Solomon and Intels India Pvt. Ltd.
The stoppage on selling the apartments/units will be applied to transactions between the builder/developer and the first-time buyers only, and not to third party transactions, said the order by the Deputy Commissioner.
Even as it has been almost a month since the tragedy struck the Chintels Paradiso, the housing society’s residents continue to observe a hunger strike demanding arrest of the builders, adequate compensation to the affected families, and an independent probe monitored by either the Supreme Court of India or the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
