Fight for Honor, Fight for Home

Residents of Pinnacle Brookside at Bavdhan Budurk, join hands to fight for their consumer rights:

Pinnacle Brookside, Anshul Eva & Rohan Ishan in Bavdhan Budruk - Visit to Paranjape Schemes' Gloria Grace, 2 BHK & 3 BHK Flats, at Bavdhan, on Paud Road, Kothrud Annexe, Pune
Pinnacle Brookside, Bavdhan Budruk by Pinnacle Group (www.pinnaclegroup.in)

Last weekend, residents of Pinnacle Brookside at Bavdhan Buduruk, called a meeting to discuss their issues. They invited Seematai & Shrikant of Grahak Panchayat. I went along with them and video recorded some part of the meeting.

Women were in the majority. All were focused on the action. Anger, disappointments & frustrations were on the back burners. Small tips were taken seriously. Priorities were set swiftly. At the end of meeting action plan was ready.

Living in a flat which has completion & occupancy certificates is a honor.

Forming a society and getting conveyance is becoming a true owner of your home. After paying such a high property price to the builder and big EMIs to the Bank, you deserve to become an owner of your building and land. Nobody can stop you from becoming an owner. In fact, the state government is helping you to get the conveyance done. The residents were glad to know this.

Before demanding any money, the service provider (the builder), must give the accounts, of money he has collected from them as maintenance charges, society formation charges, MSEB charges.

Demanding VAT & Service Charges without giving proper invoice is unacceptable, unprofessional and illegal.

Demanding extra charges for using club house is an offence.

Demanding maintenance charges based on the size of the flat or on number of rooms is not legal. All units should contribute the same amount for the maintenance of the society is the law.

At the end of the meeting, the residents of Pinnacle Brookside realized that the fight is not only for the home. The fight is for honor.

Their fight is not against anybody. Their fight is for their self respect. To get what they deserve.

What say you?
Is there any honor in living the life of a victim?
After paying huge property price, don't you deserve to become a true owner of your home?
Are you ready to fight for what you deserve?
