What to do if a builder asks escalation charges on delay in possession

04-May-2023 (In Consumer Court Law)
Builder is giving me 25months late possession and charged me escalation charge 50k and unknown internet 37k in final letter. Ready to give approx 1.5 lack rebate on total cost now. I can claim 1.3 lack as RS 5 per sqft for 25 month. Already filled consumer court case in Alwar. Should I settle the matter or continue my case. They increased price by escalation and interest charge and giving discount 1.5 lack to everyone. Is scalation charge applicable on delay possession and how much time it may take during court to settle. First hearing is next month.

escalation charges are never levied on delayed possession..\

as you have filed consumer complaint kindly pursue the same it may take minimum 1.5 to 2 years in normal scenario.

if you and others feel that its better to settle outside court kindly go ahead..
