What are the clauses in the agreement with respect to removal of water tanks? The answer to your question lies in the agreement itself.

Builder sells the top floor giving  roof rights to the owner but infact the roof of the building is a common area for all the occupants. If you try to remove the water tanks you may face a criminal complaint or a injunction suit from others. One buys a top floor with this attraction that he would be able to make further construction but it is not so. It is only builder's salesmanship.

you cannot remove water tanks from terrace . it forms part of common area . if water tanks are leaking all flat owners have to pool in and carry out necessary repairs or replace the water tanks . if you remove the  water tanks members of building would be deprived of water and they will file police complaint against you and move court for necessary reliefs
