Dear friend the answer of your question is yes bank have a right to occupied the project but I have a solution for you if you all buyers who take loan on their flats can talk to bank that "if they can appoint another builder and give him a responsibility to complete the project and once project is complete bank will sell out all the falt and give him some amount to that builder so your problem will solve cause bank motive is to recover his money .after all if the project is close bank also have bear the loss. Second thing you all can go to consumer court for recover your amount but if your current builder is really bankrupt how can you get your money from them. First you all have to search weather he is really bankrupt or not.
