• Threatening

Dear Sir,
    We booked a flat in Mahindra city in Chennai from a builder 5 yrs back i.e. in 2012.
Now in 2016 also it is not 100% complete , but the building with basic eminities got ready . We are trying to move in. 

The GM (General manager ) of the company who is sitting at the site , under whose control all the things are going on , is speaking to the owners(both men and women)  very rudely using bad words and threatening us saying , "you are going to stay her , I will see how you will live here ".

He is speaking like this just because we are asking him why the work that is promised is not done.
He is speaking to owners of the flats as if we are working under him. He is even ill treating the people who are working under him.

Plz help how to proceed .

1) don't move into flat unless builder has provided OC 

2) OC would imply that building has been constructed as per sanctioned plans and the amenities are provided for 

3) if the GM is rude record the conversation and complain against him to builder 

4) you can file complaint against builder before consumer forum and seek orders to obtain OC and furnish amenities mentioned in brochure

Hi
You should file police complaint about his threat and intimidation.
You should also send him a legal notice to the builder whom you have the agreement.
Hope you have some evidence to show the verbal abuse and insult by the person concerned ., i.e,Voice record,vedeo , any witnesses who heard.

The GM has no power to to speak that way to the buyers.

The buyers should gather together and thrash him is he is misbehaving or can even report to police about his rude, arrogant and unbecoming behavior and also for posing threats to the inhabitants. 

He is not above law, if the police is not entertaining a complaint given by all those affected, then they may all escalate the matter to the commissioner/superintendent  of police seeking its intervention and direction to police to book appropriate cases agaisnt the GM. 

Besides you all can lodge a complaint to the company's MD about this harsh and threatening behavior of the GM and request him to change this unbecoming and uncivilized GM.

There is an option to issue him a legal notice for defamation too if his behavior has defamed or insulted yo people.
