The stone bridge apartment building in central Delhi, known as the “Stonebridge” for its resemblance to a rock, has become the most-talked about residential property in the country.
The building has been the subject of a massive media campaign since its construction on November 20, 2017.
The residents have accused the developers of violating the building’s rules by selling it to them on inflated prices.
However, the government has not taken any action against the developers.
In a statement to NDTV, a spokesperson for the developers said they had built the tower on the basis of the recommendations of the Central Land Acquisition Board.
“We are looking into the matter and will take necessary action if we find any violation of norms.
We have already taken corrective measures and are implementing them,” the spokesperson said.
The developers are yet to file any response to the complaints, NDTV reported.
However some residents have claimed that they are being threatened by the developers to take legal action against them.
“The developers will be taking legal action, we will take legal steps to defend ourselves,” said Sanjay Jain, a resident.
In the meantime, residents have continued to complain about the condition of the building, which is located at the corner of Kalyan Street and Raj Bhavan Road.
“It’s in shambles.
There is no electricity, no water, no heating.
People have been complaining for months that they have not been allowed to sleep at night,” a resident, who identified himself as Raj, told NDTV.
“Some of them have resorted to begging.
People in the block are staying here because they do not have a place to stay.
We are not homeless,” he added.
Residents have also started protesting outside the building.
“What we are doing is our right.
We don’t want to live like this,” said Rakesh, another resident.
