I understand that the entire payment towards the purchase of said property is paid by you to the Builder. If there is no liability as he is still retaining the possession of the property and not registering the same you can file consumer complaint and also file civil and criminal suit against the said builder.

You have right to get registered document in your favour if you have paid entire consideration. Builder can not withhold same. What kind of document or agreement you have from builder. If it is agreement for sale then you can sue builder for seeking specific performance of same agreement before civil court. If you have unregistered agreement of sale then you can compel builder for registration by filing suit. You also can approach to consumer fouram. All remedies are depends upon nature of document you have. Builder can not ask you to pay additional amount. He is duty bound to convey property in your favour.

Dear Client,
Better send a Legal Notice to developer and ask him the reason for increase in price. If you find it feasible you can pay else approach Court of law for justice. Further no need to pay for maintenance and Developer was duty bound to get the society registered within 1 year of sell of 50% of flats/shops.
Fight for your rights and you will surely get justice. Nothing much can be stated at this stage. Better Consult a Lawyer with necessary documentations to get correct and precise advice.
