Sir, I am a resident occupying the flat. The builder's name in 3C Lotus Boulevard, Sector 100, Noida and I am not sure if it is a cooperative society.
Earlier, we didn't have prepaid meters but when AOA is formed, they converted all the meters to prepaid meters and installed Xenius App to provide us the balance amount. The point is, many societies do have prepaid meters but they don't pay maintenance in advance.
They use the disconnection of electricity as a tool to threaten to pay the maintenance even though their services are not good. They are already charging 3.7/SQFT (including water and grid charges) plus the electricity whereas their services are not at basic.
On asking maintenance bill they simply say it would come when it is generated and don't share any timeline. It's like "we will do whatever we want, you keep paying maintenance".
A few days back, our neighbors (who is a senior citizen) electricity was cut and they were asking to come and pay the bill at the office during lockdown. Then after one hour of multiple calls, they agreed to come to their house to take the money.
