In this land mark judgment the court also ordered the builder to pay Rs. 10000 as the litigation cost to the resident of south Delhi Mr. Ranjeet Bhatia
Bhatia filed a complaint against the builder in which he said that, he had booked a flat in Supertech’s Noida project for Rs. 1.35 Crore and according to the agreement the allotment of the flat should be given in 2015 but the firm failed to do so hence Bhatia filed a case against the firm for refund
Justice V.K Jain said that Considering the failure of the OP (Opposite Party) to perform its contractual obligation by offering possession of the flat booked by the complainant, the complainant cannot be compelled to wait for an uncertain period till the OP is able to complete construction of the flat which it had booked by them,”
