In 2009, Ansal API launched a township project by the name of 'Sushant Golf City' on Sultanpur Road in Lucknow. They also put out an Ad claiming that they were building 700 flats for EWS families as part of the project, as per the UP government's rules mandating developers to earmark a certain number of flats for EWS (Economically Weaker Section) families.  Following the Ad, 639 families applied for flats.The private builders promised both completion and possession, along with registry within a span of four years.The allottees waited till 2012, but less than half the flats were ready by then. At the same time, the allottees were frequenting the developer's office for registration of their flats, only to be put off again and again.Last year (in 2016), the allottees also approached the Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) to register a complaint. But there was no investigation by the LDA. With renewed hope after the state government's fresh, strict directives against builder's arbitrary behavior, the allottees have again approached the LDA with their plea. LDA VC, PN Singh has now assured action against Ansal API and justice to the allottees.
