KOCHI: The Apartment Owners Apex Association (AOAA) in a statement on Saturday alleged that the government had succumbed to the pressure tactics of organisations like the Confederation of Real Estate Developers’ Association of India (CREDAI).

“The government is maintaining a step-motherly attitude towards the plights of apartment representatives. It was because of CREDAI’s lobbying that it stalled full-fledged implementation of the Kerala Apartment Ownership Act - 1983 and the Kerala Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Ordinance - 2015. For the government, ‘supporting builders flouting the laws’ has become the norm. What they should understand is that development does not mean appeasing builders,” said the statement.

“The annual general body meeting of the Association, to be held at the YMCA Hall here on Sunday, will discuss existing issues in detail,” it said, adding that the Association had submitted a ten-point representation to the government, including simplification of procedures for registration under the Kerala Apartment Ownership Act - 1983 and penalisation of builders who violate building rules.
