Mangaluru: Irked residents of Ashoka Paradise, Hoigebail, Ashok Nagar staged a protest near the office of Lancy Constructions,Pio Mall, Bejai here, on April 16.
One of the residents said, “Land Links and Lancy Constructions had built Ashoka Paradise from 2009 but have not handed over the premises to the association of the occupants. Hence, it is the duty of the builder to carry out the maintenance activities. The builder, however, has decided to stop the maintenance of the Ashoka Paradise premises which amounts to, breach of trust, denial of bounden duties and cheating to the Ashoka Paradise residents”.
There was a meeting held in January 2016 during which Land Links had agreed to complete all the pending issues, but as of today, the work is not completed and land and water issues are still not settled. “Ashoka Paradise residents are facing acute shortage of water and land with respect to the agreements signed between us and Land Links,” said a resident.
“Just building walls and windows is not enough. Other basic facilities like water supply, parking should be available. We have been paying maintenance fee from past 5 years, but there are no meetings held and we are not shown any of the accounts statements. We are being treated as refugees,” he said.
“It has come to our notice that watch and ward, water supply and generator facilities will be stopped immediately. 220 resident flats which hold about 600 people will be in deep trouble. It has come to our notice that the builder is planning to flee the country anytime. We are filing a cheating and breach of trust case against the builders,” he said.
