Family gets 11 lakh relief after booking a flat 34 years ago

Thirty four years after a family booked a flat at Tardeo but never received possession , a district consumer forum has brought to book the errant developer and ordered it to pay almost Rs 11 lakh as compensation . While the family had been perusing the developers for possession ever since they booked the flat in 1985 that they were informed that the contract had been terminated in 1987.

The builder , Tardeo Properties Pvt Ltd, told the forum construction of the building in which the complainant Jitendra and Nayana Modi had booked the 650 square feet flat could not be completed. The forum directed the developer to return the Rs 2.27 Lakh paid by the Modys along with 10% interest from the date of booking . July 13 1985. Additionally , the developer will also have to pay Rs 1.20 lakh for mental agony. The price of the flat was 4.55 Lakh.

The complaint was submitted before the forum in 2015. Refuting the developer’s claim that it had sent the cancellation letter to the Modys on August 4 1987, the forum said it had failed to submit any such letter
