Mohali, July 27

MP Manish Tewari today sought investigation into the malpractices and deficiency in service by big builders operating in Mohali.

He sought a thorough investigation into the builders who have not fulfilled their commitments to the buyers and those who have not started projects after taking money from people.

He called upon the Special Investigating Team (SIT), formed by Mohali SSP Satinder Singh on Monday, to put up a public notice inviting complaints from the aggrieved house/apartment owners.

A special team under Superintendent of Police (Rural) Dr Ravjot Kaur Grewal will probe the matter and submit a report within 15 days.

The development comes 11 days after the police booked 48 unauthorised colonisers involved in construction of housing societies, flats and commercial buildings on agricultural land under Sections 5 and 36 (1) of the Punjab Apartment and Property Regulation Act at the Balongi police station.

Most of the colonisers, who have been booked, operate in Jhampur, Ballo Majra and Behlolpur areas. The case was registered after complaints from the GMADA Additional Chief Administrator.

Tewari said non-provision of basic amenities, deficiency in service, delayed possessions, false promises and failure to complete projects in stipulated period are some of the violations by realtors, robbing the people of their hard-earned money.

Tewari also urged Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh to take strict action against the real estate mafia in Mohali, Kharar and New Chandigarh areas.
