Even as the pending work of phase I and II of Wonder Futura in Kothrud has picked up pace, flat owners feel that the problem of heavy leakage that poses a threat to the construction work is not being addressed
Around 200 flat owners of the residential project held an agitation two months back protesting incomplete construction and delay in getting ownership of flats. 26 consumer complaints in this regard have been lodged with the Pune District Consumer Forum.
"There are heavy leakages in all four buildings in Phase-I that has weaken the structure. While it is being brought to the notice of the builder, there is not much action seen," said Sham Vasu, one of the flat owners in Phase-I. The recent rains have worsened the condition, he added.
Another major concern of the flat owners is Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) water supply.
"There are no signs of getting PMC water supply and we are currently managing with tankers. We are afraid the situation will worsen in summer," said Nikhil Roy, a flat owner in phase-II of the project.
While the builder is in continuous dialogue with the PMC officials, BJP corporator Shyam Deshpande said that it will take another month for PMC to provide water supply connections to both the phases.
Meanwhile, Bharati Developers who launched the project have agreed to complete the backlog and hand over the flats by January 14.
Wonder Futura project that was launched in 2003 was publicized as Pune's first intelligent home with digital access, monitoring the visitor, auto on/off - electrical appliances and gas apart from amenities like swimming pool, club house, senior citizen's park, children play - area and so on. The possession , of all the 240 flats was promised - in June 2007; however, flat owners are yet to receive the legal possession documents.
Kothrud flat owners still an unhappy lot
