The terms of agreement are sacrosanct 


2) builder is bound to provide finishing agreed upon in writing 


3) builder can deliver possession only after issue of OC.

Issue a notice to the Builder asking him to comply with the obligations which he has to do as per the Agreement.

In case if he fails to do so, you can knock the door of Consumer Forum.

Make sure that, the undertakings given falls under his domain before taking any steps.

Good Luck.

  1. As per the information mentioned in the present query, makes it clear that the builder has not understood the concept of executing the agreement.
  2. If either of the party breaches any of the condition therein then the breaching party is liable to be sued before the court of law.
  3. You should file a RERA complaint or State consumer forum seeking immediate intervention and direction for the  builder to get to completed or pay you the amount so that you can get it done yourself.
