Dear Expert I had bought a flat from the builder and they had given me possession letter in March 2017 when I had paid them full amount. I was told to hand over this possession letter to the person who was incharge of handing over the keys and I did that and got the keys. Now when I wanted to apply for electricity connection the Electricity supply company is asking for possession letter which I don't have as I had given to the person when I got the keys. I have explained this situation verbally and in writing to the promoter but he is not responding. Please advise me what legal steps can be taken to get the duplicate possession letter as without this letter I cannot get the new electricity connection. Thank you

Whether the builder have executed "sale deed" or not ? Electricity department has to ensure "title" and not possession, as stated by you, which you should confirm from department. Show the documents to a local lawyer for better appreciation of facts / documents to a local prudent lawyer for better analyses, guidance and proceeding professionally, which may require/ attract issuance of notice and/or filing a suit for specific performance or permanent and mandatory injunction.

1. Based on your Property Sale Deed, serve legal notice to the Builder and the Electricity co. NEXT time keep proper EXTRA COLOR photocopies of all the documents related to immovable property.
2. IF the above fails, THEN file a grievance petition before the local consumer court, for relief, damages and necessary directions to the above parties.
