You can register (1) a case with the police against the builder for criminal cheating and also together you can file a case before Consumer Court, if this shop was for your livelihood or before permanent lok adalat if the total sale price is less than Rs. 1 crore. You can also file a civil case for possession and recovery.

You can bring all the papers, letters, communications and e-mails for further and clear advise.
