I have paid for a property in Mira Road to a builder – M/S Square Infra Arch (Mira Road), in May’14. I paid advance payment for the property in cheques and the rest is to be paid post possession. However, the builder has not provided with the date of completion of the project and has also not initiated any steps for the registration of the property.
Post multiple follow-ups with him; requesting him to refund the money with interest in case he is not interested in registering; he gave me a part payment cheques in Jan’15. All these cheques bounced when I deposited them into my account.
Now the builder is not available in his office nor is available on phone or messages. He seems to have run away with the money and there are many people like me facing a similar issue.
Bouncing of cheques is a criminal offence and the builder doesn’t seem to care much about it and I am now worried that he will not re-pay the money.
Requesting your help and way forward.
