Shivpuri had approached the local district consumer forum stating that after getting possession, it lacked facilities like grand entrance lobby, swimming pool, terrace garden, club and gym which was mentioned in the brochure. The district forum accepted his arguments but just gave him a compensation of ₹25,000. He then approached the State Consumer Commission and with regards to this complaint, the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) recently ruled out that a builder should fulfil all the promises that he has stated in the brochure or promotional material which persuades the person to buy the flat.  

Only after he approached the State Consumer Commission, he was given a compensation of ₹3 lakhs.
