3. Shri Girish Bapat

Subject: Action against Misleading Advertisements by M/s Maple Group and extracting hudge amount from poor people's

Respected Sir,

M/S Maple Group having address city square, near agricultural collage, behind pride hotel, Shivajinagar Pune 411005 have given big advertisements in various newspapers including Lokmat on 14 and 15 April 2016 stating that within 5 lakh you will get own flat under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana and individuals will get special subsidy under this scheme. He has advertised complete pages in almost all leading news papers in maharashtra state and he has announced 11 locations around pune.

They have published forms and collecting Rs 1000 for inspection of documents Rs 145 for service charges. All these charges are non refundable.

They have published photographs of Mr. Narendra Modi Prime minister, Mr Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister and Mr. Girish Bapat, Guardian Minister of Pune
They are collecting this amount through cheque, cash and bank. The period of booking will be 14 April to 1 May 2016.
At least one lakh people will pay Rs 1145 per head. That means they will collect minimum Rs 11.45 crore.

We came to know from Govt of Maharashtra that they have not given permission for such advertisement for printing pictures of Prime minister, chief minister and guardian minister.

As per existing acts and laws no private builder or party is liable to inspect the documents for Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna. Only govt offices will decide this fact but this builder has given misleading advertisements and extracting money.

He has neither mentioned size of flat nor all the details required under Maharashtra Flat Ownership Act 1963. Further he is collecting this money without any permission from State or central govt.

Due to big advertisement and also various articles in all the news papers common and poor man will be looted and further we have got the complaints from various earlier purchasers that M/s Maple and Jalan builders have collected huge amount under Aapla Ghar Yojana from poor people's since last 3 to 4 years and have not given possession of the flats.

This builder is misleading the common and poor people's and extracting money from then hence we request you to intervene in this matter and take appropriate legal action against thus builder and ask him to refund all the amounts of poor people's.

Thanking you

Yours faithfully

For Akhil Bhartiya Grahak Panchayat Pune
