Well known developer has landed in trouble after a resident of one of his own projects lodged an FIR against developer Vivek Oberoi. He has accused the head of the Oberoi Realty of duping flat owners by delivering smaller flats than what was promised. Meghwadi police in Jogeshwari has filed the case and is investigating the matter.

The case has been filed by Mohit Bhardwaj, a resident of Oberoi Splendour, a luxury project on Jogeshwari-Vikhroli Link Road. The project was completed a couple of years ago. Bhardwaj claimed that he represented several other flat owners, who have been fighting against the developer for the last couple of years.

Bhardwaj complained that not only the size of the flats was smaller, but the height of the ceiling was also lesser than what was promised, among other things. “We were promised amenities such as club house, swimming pool, squash court, spa, party hall, jogging park, tennis court, amphitheatre, camping site, plaza, landscaped garden, bamboo garden, skating rink, gazebo, and so on. A rosy picture was presented,” said Bhardwaj.

He claimed that as the project neared completion, however, the buyers found out that the number of flats on each floor was much higher. “In place of the camping site and amphitheatre, the developers constructed one more building under the name Oberoi Grande,” stated the complaint. In all, around 400 more apartments were added in Splendour and Grande. “The developers have cheated the flat buyers to the tune of Rs 142.56 crore,” stated the complaint.

The residents then approached the Magistrate’s court, which ordered that an FIR be filed against Oberoi.

Meanwhile, Oberoi Realty spokesperson said, “This FIR is absolutely bizarre. All allegations are factually incorrect. We have fulfilled all our legal obligations. In fact, the complainant has got no relief till date from any of the legal forums that he has approached. Oberoi Realty is a law-abiding corporate and adheres to the highest principles of corporate governance and ethical business practices. We are confident of proving the same in any court of law.”

Oberoi Realty is a complete fraud. One should avoid contacting them.
