WE HAD PURCHASED A GF FINISHED SHOP IN JUNE 2012 FROM A DEVELOPER AND SALE DEED BEING EXECUTED ON 20/06/2012. AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE THERE WAS TEMPORARY LIGHT CONNECTION AT THE SITE. WE WERE INFORMED BY DEVELOPER THAT WITHIN FEW DAYS ALL SHOP OWNER ON GF WOULD BE GIVEN PERMANENT LIGHT CONNECTION. 2-3 MONTHS HAVE PASSED AND WE CAME TO KNOW FROM ELECTRICITY BOARD THAT DEVELOPER AS NOW HAS NOT SUBMITTED ANY DETAILS TO ELECTRICITY BOARD NOR THE ELECTRIC PANEL BOARD AT SITE LOCATION HAS BEEN PROPERTY FITTED, EARTHING HAS NOT BEEN DONE, ELECTRIC PANEL BOARD HAS NOT BEEN COVERED SO AS TO PROTECT FROM RAIN. THE DEVELOPER HAS ASKED ALL OWNER TO DEPOSIT RS. 20000/- AS SERVICE CHARGES FOR GETTING THE CONNECTION WHICH AT THE TIME OF PURCHASED HAD NOT BEEN INFORMED. SO UNLESS WE DO NOT DEPOSIT THE SAME CHARGES DEVELOPER SHALL NOT MOVE AHEAD.
WE ON APPROACHING THE ELECTRIC BOARD FOR CONNECTION HAVE BEEN INFORMED THAT UNLESS AND UNTIL ALL PENDING WORK IN DONE BY DEVEOPER THEY CANNOT ALLOT THE PERMANENT ELECTRIC CONNECTION.
SINCE THE CHARGES OF PERMANENT CONNECTION IS VERY HIGH IT IS CAUSING LOT OF INCONVEINENCE TO US AND OTHERS OWNERS ON GF.
IN SUCH AS CASE WHAT ARE OUR RIGHTS AND UNDER WHAT SECTION WE CAN FILE SUIT OR SEND NOTICE TO THE DEVELOPER SO THAT THE WORK AT LOCATION IS EXPEDITED.
Since you have an executed Agreement of sale [I believe it is properly stamped and duly registered], please refer it, it would have stated the facilties that the developer has promised you. If it mentions the electric supply, which is usually the case, then you can give a legal notice to the developer and in case he does not pay heed, then you can approach the Consumer Forum for redressal.
