New Delhi, June 14 (IANS) In the backdrop of fraud and cheating cases involving builders, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday held a meeting with them along with all the three authorities’ officials on his review visit to Gautam Buddh Nagar. The Chief Minister is learnt to have told the builders to fulfil the promises made by them or be ready to face the music.

Around 20 big defaulter-builders were present in the meeting, who have been asked to clear their debts and complete their projects. No representative from Uttar Pradesh RERA was invited to the meeting.
According to a senior official who was present in the meeting, the CM emphasized that struggling home buyers should get their flats as soon as possible.
“He has given a final warning to the builders who have either fooled or are unable to fulfil their promises to the buyers or haven’t cleared the debts of the authority. If the builder fail to do so, they would have to face action. While the three authorities will keep a check on the work,” the official said.
