Carpet area not same as promised


I bought an apartment 3 months back. At the time of booking builder told me that there will be 70% carpet area. There was no mention of the same on Allotment letter or any other communication regarding carpet area. At the time of registry I learned that carpet area is only 62%. What are my options?

Simple case of 420 if you have written evidence for your agreement with developer. 


I don't have any written evidence. At the time of booking they told me that carpet area is 70%. However didn't mention actual carpet area anywhere on booking form or allotment letter.

What is the area mentioned in the agreement -- Super built up orbuilt up ... as the carpet rule is applicable maharastra .. check with a advocate whether the same is applicable there or not ... if yes you can fila a case against him on that basis. cancellation will be difficult as ur stamp duty will go waste. Do u have anything where the carpet loading is quoted ... a signed or stamped document by the builder. i mean if that rule is not applicable ... u wont be able to do much without proper evidence proving the same
