    Hello, is there any provision for supply of drinking water as in articular value of TDS water? Very nice post though.
    And are these requirement the same for haryana as well?

      Hi, while most of the requirements are same, some like Form A do not apply to Haryana. We will try to share the Haryana specific checklist as well in few days. The mandatory conditions don’t cover any requirement for drinking water.

    Above post refers to CC but I would like to know the role of Occupancy Certificate. Our builder says OC is not required for residential project, Is it true?

      Since multistoreyed buildings have plethora of additional aspects like fire safety etc., first completion in accordance with permits and plans (called completion certificate) needs to be had. The physical occupation however is legally possible only after OC which is mostly a formality post getting CC.

    The builder has given posession to buyers without getting CC from Noida authority snd without registry. Entire project is now getting habited in same condition. What are the negatives ??

      Please check with NA (through RTI or other means) as to what is the reason for delaying OC/CC (apart from NGT if applicable to your project).
      Also let builder know in written that you are taking possession under personal compulsion and onus of your safety/security rests with the builder.
      Taking possession in such circumstances would be dependent on an individual’s situation.

    Thank you. This list will guide Today Homes’ buyers while taking possession in Tower B& C for which possession is expected soon but the above mentioned works are still pending and there is no sight of OC.

      Thanks for the appreciation. Wish you the best.

    What to do if a builder issues possession letter without completing the above formalities/documentation

    • April 30, 2015 at 11:14 am

      Dear Balbir, a lot can be done if you have a buyers association.
      Else on individual basis, ensure you send emails and letters by registered post to the builder asking for documents or raising requirements not met. Also mention that in absence of a response, responsibility of any damage or loss (like a security or safety breach) to you would be builders responsibility.
      If CC has been received, you may also put an RTI with NA as to why CC was provided when these these things are missing.
