Platinum City residents protest against builder

Bangalore: April 6, 2013 DH News Service
Residents of Platinum City Apartments, Yeshwantpur on Friday held a protest against the Chairman, India Builders Corporation, Giah Ullah Shareif, the builder of the property, following a notice by the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) to around 20 residents on April 1, 2013.

The notice issued to a few residents said that since the builder does not have occupancy certificate (OC) for the building, they have to vacate their houses before they are locked up. To start with, only 20 of them have been issued notices.
According to sources, the construction of the Platinum City Apartments started in 2001.

No OC certificate
The builder reportedly did not have OC and fire clearance certificate from the Fire department.

“Why did the BDA not take action all these years and why only now? Due to the mistake of the builder, we are suffering. Worried members of Platinum City Residents’ Forum had earlier written to BBMP, BDA, and chief minister in 2011 itself, but did not receive any favourable response from them,” said Keshav Pai, president, Platinum City Residents’ Forum.

Some residents maintained that the builder has been using the apartment for other commercial purposes and allowing a private company and hotel to operate from there without seeking any permission from the BDA and without OC.

“This is the sixth time we are protesting against the builder. Every time there is a protest, he goes missing,” rued one of the tenants, Sandhyashree.

“We had issued notice to the apartment in May and June, 2012. We had even filed a police complaint against the builder in November 2012, but there was no response from him.

“Hence, as per the BDA Commissioner T Sham Bhat’s order, we had sent notice to some of the occupants to vacate the place,” a BDA official said.
