    I’ve invested in Expat Properties Pvt. Ltd, ( Bangalore based company) 1 acre N.A. plot in their project Sundew Haven-I in Roha during Nov. 2010 from Qatar for total amount of Rs. 13 lacs (in 4 installments) and I was supposed to get possession of the said plot in April 2013 but even after continuously follow up with them till date I am awaiting possession of my plot. Suddenly on 24/05/2016 their Head of Customer Relations Mr. Berlyn D’souza realizes that this Sundew Haven project is falling under forest zone (nearly after 6 years of my investment). Hence they are not in a position to deliver the plots in the same project and alternatively they will allot same 1 acre land in some other undeveloped project for which details are still awaiting. Like me their many investors (many of them are NRI) have locked their money for more than 8 to 10 years and company is not giving any firm assurance of returning their hard earn money or delivery of plot.
    I request you to please highlight this issue through your channel. my contact no. is 9221960374 .

    I bought an apartment at Mantri Premero Bangalore from Sunil Mantri’s Mantri Realty in 2010. By 2013, the builder got only the skeletal structure ready and gobbled up 97% of the costs. The pace of construction started slowing down and by end 2013, the construction completely stopped ! A few of us got together and filed a consumer complaint in the Karnataka state consumer forum in 2014, and as usual, delays in our judicial system have not helped us get any justice so far. Meanwhile, we got to hear about several civil cases of cheating against Sunil Mantri in Mumbai high court, where there were already bankruptcy proceedings initiated against him. As per Mumbai high court orders, our property also got attached by official liquidators, and the case is now pending hearing in Mumbai high court. We all are honest taxpayers who put in all our hard earned money on this home, and it is heartbreaking to go through a liquidation process for no fault of ours. Many of us got together and have provided all relevant documents to prove Sunil Mantri has no stake anymore since all apartments have been sold to valid buyers and the land belongs to someone else. However, we are now at the mercy of the judicial system to get ourselves a clean chit and come out of clutches of court. The fact that all our money earned so far is on the verge of being lost is causing us a lot of grief and emotional hurt, resulting in huge amounts of stress and depression. This includes families of many senior citizens who put in all their retirement earnings into this home. Request you to report our plight through this program and help us get a legal clearance from the honorable court. We are badly waiting for our beloved home. Let the court deal with the cheat Sunil Mantri in its own way, but give us a reprieve ! Thank you.

  4. Frustrated Flat Owner June 1, 2016

    I’m frustrated with the builder of our flat. MJR builders have been working under a sheath of dishonesty since 2012 on MJR Pearl (Whitefield, Bangalore). The ownership of land is still uncertain and flat possession has been delayed by a year already. There is no sign of the flat getting ready yet. Meanwhile they are changing their commitments daily. First they said they cannot provide piped gas, now there will be no service lifts, after that they are saying that they will give possession by Sept 2016 but without any amenities. This is not acceptable and they are constantly cheating us. The promised penalty payment is also being avoided at all costs. They are refusing to even discuss penalty payments. #whereismyhome? My hard earned money is being flushed down the toilet as I am paying both rent and EMI. Help!
