-Some builders have collected VAT & Service Tax from their customers but not paid the same to Government or paid back to customers.
-In final agreement flower bed area is shown separately, however the cost of the same in being charges at the same rate of the flat rate.

-Drawings of conceal connections - of water, electricity and telephone/TV cabal fitting are not provided, due to this any addition and modification get difficult. more  
No body will executive any work with out profit. The costlier the work costlier the risk and hence profit should be there . why do you depend on builders but you can build your house/shop even one third of the cost of builders. more  
They builders are in hand in glove with the big politicians. We are just helpless infront of them. Where is Government? All the purchase and sales must be done through Banks . more  
Builders should not change the Plan or any lay out without the knowledge of the consumers who have booked. more
