Hi, sir i can understand your problem but one thing is that without scrutinize the document of title it is not correct to enter into any agreement with third party and pay the amount to a person who is not a owner and you have to approach police for playing fraud by the broker.
file criiminal case of cheating against broker . it appears you have been taken for a ride . promoter has not signed any agreement with you for sale of flat . ask for refund of your money from broker
The core reason why these people succeed in their malpractices is because the prospective buyers like you in India do not involve the lawyers in the decision making process inasmuch as the due diligence test is to be carried out before purchasing any property. You need to take a leaf out of the book of people in the west who do not sign any agreement without seeking legal advice from their lawyer.
Now get the necessary documents vetted by your lawyer and file a criminal case for cheating in the court against the broker. Apart from the case of cheating file a case for recovery of money from the broker.
