Parijat Apartments is a lavish township proposed by Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) in Gomti Nagar with flats as big as 2,400 square feet. When LDA commenced the project it promised the allottees to deliver the plots by 2015, but the project got stuck in a conflict between the authority and farmers from whom it had acquired land for the township. In 2016, LDA resolved the conflict with farmers after it paid higher compensation to the farmers. The construction work started and LDA planned to deliver all the plots in the next two to three months. But a new conflict had arisen between the allottees and LDA. Allottees complained that they had to pay high EMIs for the plots that they got possession over, after three years of delay. Allottees filed complaints with the Consumer forum. In 2019 UP deputy CM Keshav Maurya wrote to CM Yogi Adityanath about irregularities in the allotment of commercial plots, apartment construction, forgery in amalgamation of schemes and disappearance of documents and files in the LDA. Decisions were taken that benefited private builders and companies found guilty of irregularities in the construction of Parijat, Panchsheel, Smriti, Srishti and Sahaj apartments were not blacklisted and instead even given more work, Maurya alleged. He said that files of scores of persons who had been allotted plots/flats in the Transport Nagar, Gomti Nagar and Jankipuram colonies were missing from the LDA.
