Landmark Decision For Home Buyers

In a major relief for aggrieved home buyers, the Supreme Court has held that flat buyers can jointly approach the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission in case of a dispute with a builder, where the aggregate value exceeds Rs 1 crore

The Supreme Court has upheld the order of the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) that flat buyers can jointly approach it, in case of a dispute with a builder.

A bench headed by justice Dipak Misra, rejected the appeal of Amrapali Sapphire Developers Pvt. Ltd, challenging the NDCRC decision on the ground that a plea can be filed directly before the apex consumer commission if the total value of the disputed deal is over Rs 1 crore and the 43 buyers cannot file a joint plea before the NCDRC.
