A consumer court on Tuesday ordered the Shaikupura DPO to execute court orders in nine cases filed against Green Valley Housing Society seeking damages for not providing the facilities promised to its residents.
The court had issued nine decrees against the owner of society, ordering him to pay Rs585,000 to the petitioners. However, the orders were not complied with.
In his reply, the respondent asked the court to dismiss the petitions, saying that he was being blackmailed by the petitioners.
The petitioners had complained that the housing society had promised electricity, gas and water facilities as part of the plot-purchase package.
The petitioners said after spending millions on the purchase of the plots and even more on the construction of their houses, they were frustrated by the lack of basic facilities despite repeated reminders to the society.
The court passed its order on July 27, 2011.
Later, the petitioners filed petitions seeking execution of the court order. The respondent was summoned but he did not turn up.
Later, the respondent filed 9 applications seeking restoration of the suit as he had not been heard and the court had decided the matters ex parte.
The court dismissed these applications and issued arrest warrants for Ali and ordered the SHO to ensure execution of its order by August 21.
