A developer failed to deliver his promise of supplying the said amenities consisting of a swimming pool, gym and servants’ quarters, in a bungalow’s scheme to a lawyer in Bhopal. The latter sought to seek justice by filing a police complaint against him.

The complainant, Bhupendra Chawda, said in his FIR that he had first visited a sample house situated in the construction site of a housing scheme named “WestRidge”. The scheme consisted of 23 bungalows with an area of 300 to 350 square meters each. Pacifica Infraplus had allegedly launched the scheme in 2019, at Sterling City in Bhopal.

Chawda had later visited the office of Pacifica Infraplus to get a brochure of the scheme which consisted of promises of clubhouse, swimming pool, servant’s quarters and parking shed, none of which were delivered to him.

He claims that promoters of the company, namely Rakesh Israni, Jay Chandani, Ronak Thakkar and Dhara Shelat assured him that the entire construction process would be completed by December 2020. Believing them, Chavda had paid the complete price of Rs1 crore to them.

Besides the whole amount, he shared that he was also charged various penalties and when he finally went to live at the house after 23 August 2021, none of the amenities promised were delivered. Neither streetlights, nor the security guard cabin or main gate of the society were provided.

It was only later that Chavda along with other residents found that the colony did not even have building use permission.
