National Consumer Commission sentences 3 yrs in jail to Supertech MD

New Delhi: National Consumer Commission has sentenced 3 years in jail to Supertech Managing Director Mohit Arora for not refunding a home buyer. The company did not give possession of the homebuyer’s house on Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Area (YEIDA) for many years, according to a news report in Hindustan Times.

The Commission said that its order for arrest of Arora must be complied with after seven days if Supertech fails to deposit Rs 1.79 crore. 

The builder has to pay this amount to Kanwal Batra and Ruhi, his daughter, who jointly bought a villa in 2013 for Rs 1.03 crore.

Supertech had promised to complete and give possession of the property in 2014.

"In view of non-compliance and dishonoring of his commitment, Arora was being sentenced to three years in jail under Section 27 of the Consumer Protection Act, 1986 and a warrant of arrest was being issued," the commission said in its order.
