Why or when am I a Maintenance Payment Defaulter?
You are a defaulter when –
- Either you haven’t paid the maintenance bill within the due dates of the concerned Maintenance Bills,
- Or your Total Outstanding is more than the allowed credit limit already. Previously it was equal to your Monthly Billing Amount, but w.e.f. Jan ‘2016 it is Rs. 0 (zero).
What are the consequences of being defaulter in Maintenance billing system?
When you are a defaulter –
- A Penalty is charged on Total Outstanding (Due) [Bill Outstanding + Previous Penalty + Other Charges if any] @18%PA, calculated monthly basis for late payment.
- Payment grace period (15 days) is not applicable.
- Any regular Discount (ref. Maintenance Bills) is also not applicable.
- Defaulter status is calculated and set on day 1 & 15 of the month, and once it is “Yes” then it will be fixed for that whole month.
How much time do I get to pay a maintenance bill once it is generated/calculated?
In Maintenance billing system – bills are generated quarterly for the monthly ad-hoc maintenance payments. The bill is generated/calculated on/from 1st day of the month. Once the bill is generated/calculated, a 15 days’ grace period is allowed for the owners (except defaulters) to pay it. Hence, the flat owners need to pay the maintenance bill of any month within 15th of the same month. E.g. Bill of January 2015 must be cleared within 15th of January 2015. But this is not applicable for the defaulters exactly, they have to pay the bill along with the calculated penalty from day 1 for the whole period / month. Means, for defaulters the mentioned grade period of 15 days is not allowed.
