As we all are well aware the initiative taken in Feb, 2010 by the AMU Old Boys Association, Delhi to form group housing society in NCR with the intention to provide good and affordable accommodation with a MOSQUE inside the society which is really appreciable. The Mosque as a main attraction for all of us, we immediately grabbed this opportunity and booked a unit in the society being developed by the M/S Supertech Limited at Eco Village-1 through the AMUOBSAS. But some where from Feb. 2010 to Jan 2011the AMUOBSAS management failed in its obligation to handle the matters with developer properly.
As a matter of fact we all are aware the first letter of allotment was served to us in the month of Sep-Oct.2010 which had a lot of discrepancies and against the many of the commitment made by the Samiti and developer as per the signed MoU. The Samiti officials were not able to address the issues and convince the member’s grievances. After intervention of some of the members in Delhi it was sent back to the builder for redrafting which was again re-served in the month of Jan. 2011 after the approval of the legal committee constituted by the Samiti, headed by Mr. Jamshed Bey, which too had major issues untouched. Therefore in the evening of Feb. 5th 2011 around 25 members went to Samiti office together and discussed the matter with the Samiti officials and also consulted with Justice Fakhruddin sb (Retd.) and redrafted the whole Allotment Letter incorporating the valuable suggestions given by Justice Fakhruddin Sb and the members spending whole night in the Samiti office along with Mr. Mohsin Israily (Secretary). This allotment letter was offered to the builder on Feb.9th 2011 by the Samiti and had a meeting with its official headed by Mr. G. L. Khera (Director- Project) in their office.
Primarily most of our demands were discarded by builder but when our members present in the meeting took up the matter strongly, the builder’s representative changed their approach and the demands were noted to be discussed with their management for approval & meeting deferred till next day for final conclusion. But regrettably the members who took strong initiatives were left out by the Samiti officials for the final discussion/endorsement. Had they been together more could have been accomplished.
As per the current understanding the allotment letters were to be signed on or before 15th March 2011 by the allottees but it could not happen and members have to pay their 3rd installment (i.e.20%) before 15th March 11. Members who could not pay 3rd installment before 15th March11, they have to pay 18% interest till the payment is made.
Unfortunately few of the members have not yet received their Allotment Letter in spite of their best efforts. There are few more grievances from the Samiti like.
a. Samiti has not called any General Body Meeting (GBM) after the launching
of the project for last one year.
b. Samiti has not clarified the status and rights of the members particularly for those who are not from the "Almamater"
c. Samiti has not yet prepared/finalized any model to check the quality and progress of the works.
Keeping in view the above points, some of the society members have decided to form ‘AMUOBSAS MEMBERS WELFARE FORUM’ to address the members issues time to time and as and when required and to update its members periodically. There are few urgent issues that need to be addressed now like;
- Discuss with the Samiti to extend the date of payment for IIIrd installment i.e. 20% by getting an addendum as the signing of agreements are not yet complete.
- Advise Samiti to keep the communications and process transparent among the society members.
- Discuss IFMS with the Samiti and Supertech and amount to be disclosed so that it can be claimed when ever required
- Discuss with the Samiti to expedite the signing of the allotment letters and extend the date for 3rd installment to avoid any penalty on the members
- Clarification on MoU circulated in two series of stamp paper i.e. L-series and K-series.
- Discuss with the Samiti to call a General Body Meeting (GBM) at the earliest
- Discuss with the Samiti to clarify the status and rights of the members particularly for those who are not from the "Almamater".
