PMAY Pune Advt.Following the break out of the false advertisement published by Pune’s developer Maple Shelters, Pune police on Tuesday registered an offence of cheating against the officials of the Maple Group for the firm’s “fraudulent” advertising of one-bedroom flats for Rs five lakh each as part of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojna (PMAY). The offence has been registered at the Shivajinagar police station.

Police sub-inspector Narayan Palampalle, attached to the Shivajinagar police station, lodged the first information report (FIR). Police have booked Sachin Ashok Agarwal, Naveen Ashok Agarwal and sales manager Priyanka Agarwal and other officials of the Maple Group under section 420, 417, 120 (b), 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The offence was registered on the basis of a letter issued by Nirmal Deshmukh, mission director of PMAY, newspaper advertisements of Maple Group that is alleged to be fake and statements of Sagar Balkrushna Ajabe and Vishal Rajendra Agarwal.

Police have alleged that Maple Group started registrations by promising 1 BHK flats at Rs 5 lakh, but did not mention the area, thereby misleading people. The economic offences wing (EOW) of the Pune police crime branch is investigating the case further.
