New Delhi: The National Consumer Commission has ordered a builder to pay a compensation of Rs 47.65 lakh to a buyer from Navi Mumbai who paid  Rs 8.2 lakh for a 1000 sq ft flat 25 years ago, but the buyer never got possession of the flat. In an order passed on Friday, the commission said that the flat buyer, RK Singhal, was entitled to receive not only 11% interest, 39 lakhs but also the original amount of Rs. 8.20 lakhs.

According to a report in the Times of India, Singhal approached the National Consumer Dispute Redressal Commission against Sudradh Constructions Pvt Ltd in 2015, when he was not happy with the state commission’s order. Although the state commission had compensated him but did not accept his plea to occupy the flat he booked for.

The National Commission agreed with the decision of the State Commission that it was not entitled to the flat as it had made this demand several years after the first complaint was lodged in 2001. In 2015, when his case was in the final stage, he demanded possession of the flat but it was not granted.
