GHAZIABAD: UP-Rera has asked GDA to answer in 15 days why two orders by it in Oct last year and this Jan to offer possession of a flat to a PMAY beneficiary was overlooked.

Sarla Devi of Sonipat was supposed to get a flat in Madhuban Bapudham under the govt scheme. In 2021, she filed a case with the real estate regulator seeking possession of the flat.

In its March 6 order, Rera said if GDA fails to respond by March 24, it would be slapped with a fine equal to 5% of the project cost, which is around Rs 6.5 crore. The development authority has constructed 856 affordable housing units in Madhuban Bapudham at a cost of Rs 130.9 crore. None of the units have been handed over yet.

On Monday, GDA secretary Rajesh Kumar Singh said the flat could not be handed over to Sarla Devi or other beneficiaries because basic amenities including electricity, water and sewer connections and approach roads were yet to be developed.

“These works are to be carried out by the Ghaziabad Municipal Corporation, UP Jal Nigam, PVVNL and PWD, respectively. We have sent them several reminders, but the work is yet to start. This has delayed the handover,” Singh said.

Handover of around 400 units, built by GDA under PMAY in Dasna, is also stuck pending development of the area, officials said. In total 3,496 units are being constructed by GDA under PMAY, but for the past 10 years, none of the units have been handed over to beneficiaries.

The per unit cost of units under PMAY in Madhuban Bapudham and Dasna is Rs 4.50 lakh, of this Rs 1.50 lakh is borne by the central govt, Rs 1 lakh by UP and the rest by beneficiaries.
