CIDCO has been receiving many complaints that the buyers are being duped by the
builders in the NAINA region. CIDCO is the Special Planning Authority (SPA) under
the Clause (b) of subsection (1) of Section 40 of the Maharashtra Regional and
Town Planning (MR&TP) Act for NAINA. The Corporation has uploaded the details of
the development permissions granted by the office on the official website of CIDCO
http://cidco.maharashtra.gov.in/NAINA_CC.aspx. The prospective buyers can use
the uploaded information to verify the genuinity and this shall also warn them against
purchasing any land or property that is illegal.
It is noticed that some developers are selling apartments in their projects and
upcoming housing schemes by informing the buyers that their development
permissions are in the advance stage of approval from the authority. But while
verification, CIDCO observed that many developers have not even submitted their
proposal for grant of development permission and have commenced construction
without having legal valid commencement certificate.
Hence, CIDCO requests the prospective buyers to verify the approvals accorded by
the competent authority in advance before finalising any decision of buying a flat or
premises. It shall be the whole responsibility of the buyers to ascertain the
correctness, validity and authenticity of the project. CIDCO will not be responsible
towards any fraud and misrepresentation made by any developer.
CIDCO also appeals to the general public to verify the documents and approvals
given to projects by NAINA, CIDCO or District Collector, Raigad/Thane prior to the
appointment of CIDCO as SPA.
