I am building a house in Nagpur City, I finalize a contractor for construction of house. Plot was on my wife's name, contract made between my wife and contractor.
Conditions are as follows.
Foundation was ready available
Ground Floor without rooms, only parking & 1 toilet @ Rs. 700/- per sq. feet.
1st Floor All construction ready to live, i.e. 1 Hall, 2 Bedroom, 1 Kitchen, 1 Toilet bathroom attached, Hall POP, All electric and plumbing fittings. @ Rs. 1100/- per sq. feet.
Contractor made a contract on Rs. 100/- stamp paper. He did not mentioned anything about super build up area.
But he is charging as per super build up area.
We paid money to him time to time in total of Rs. 17 Lakh. he start the construction from 1st of April, 2015.
On mutual understanding we add more work as follows.
Wall Compound - Rs. 40,000/-
Ground floor construction with 1 Kitchen, 1 Hall cum bedroom, 1 Toilet Bathroom Attached, & 2 rooms for shop at front with shutter. @ Rs. 225000/-
And as contractor told us this additional money to be pay as per our convenience @ Rs. 50,000/- per month.
House was ready with all brick/wall work and plaster, ground + 1st floor.
Balance Tiles, Windows, Doors, POP, Electric fitting with wiring, plumbing, toilet fitting accessory, Kitchen table, wash basin etc.
Problem is now he is refusing to compete the work without payment, he is asking balance payment 1st, then he want to work. He is telling that he completed the work for Rs. 17,00,000/-
As per my calculation and standard rates and charges for balance work will be Rs. 6,00,000/- minimum.
And his balance only Rs. 4,72,792/- So Rs. 1,27,208/- is the excess amount he took. now it is 1 month over that he stopped the work.
Is there any possibility to file a complaint in consumer Court, please suggest.
