National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission directs VUDA to allot flat at original price
Wednesday, November 8, 2017
The National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission in its order directed the VUDA that an allottee in the Haritha Housing Projects be provided flat as per the original allotment letter.
Commission Presiding Member Prem Narain upheld the State Commission’s direction that VUDA should allot HIG flat in Godavari Block-1 as per the original allotment letter to Charva Sheela Reddy, professor in Indian Institute of Public Administration in New Delhi.
In its order, he said ‘as there is no clause of the flat in the allotment letter, I find no error in the order of the AP State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission that VUDA is liable to hand over the possession in terms of allotment letter dated 18.10.2010. It means complainant is required to pay the price as per the letter of allotment only.
However, it set aside the State Commission awarding a compensation of Rs.2 lakh as the petitioner had not paid the 5th and 6th instalments and the possession was not due on the account.
It may be recalled that Reddy approached the State Commission in June 2013 seeking delivery of the flat as per the allotment agreement, rent of Rs.15,000 a month till handing over the flat and a compensation of Rs.3.6 lakh towards mental agony. VUDA went in appeal against the State Commission’s order.
