I have filed a Complaint against our Developer for deficiencies and non-completion of
work even though he was given opportunity time and again. This was filed before
Hon'ble Telangana State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission at Hyderabad.
The Opposite Party had failed to appear before the Commission and the Hon'ble
Commission has declared that he Opposite Party had forefeited the opporunity of
filing a counter. Later, I have filed Evicdence-in-Chief with all documents again..
The Opposite Party now filed evidence affidavit in which he has denied all the
charges levelled against him in my complaint. Not even a single documentary
evidence was produced by him. He had mentioned certain amount payable by the
Owners to him, but, without any documentary evidence. He had even gone to the extent of
making statements of blatant lies, even though we have provided all documentary
evidence. He has constructed two rooms and a toilet in the cellar illegally and
retained about 20 square yards of undivided share of land by short registering
to the Owners @ 1.5 to 2 square yards. Now, he is claiming that it is his share
and he has title over the said illegal construction. As per HMDA (Local authority)
approved plan, he had submitted an undertaking that he would not convert the
cellar or stilt into any other purpose, other than parking. While this is so, he
is trying to mislead the Commission. My lawyer confirmed that at this stage
there is no requirement of filing any counter or rejoinder. One lawyer friend
advised me that in case the Opposite Party had brought out any new issues,
you can always file a counter or a rejoinder. I am confused. I may kindly
be advised. The next date of hearing is posted to 13th June, 2018.
Grateful, for kind advice. With warm regards,'
