My flat is on the 2nd floor.with the result my 2 bathrooms get destroyed completly. despite my repeated complaints verbal as well as in writing also to the Management but all went in vain. I withhold maintenance charges for one quarter just to make pressure on M.C.and also to recover cost of damages in my flat.and also advised the M.C. accordingly in writing. , but M.C. did not replied to that letter for 3 years. In the mean time remaining maintenance were being paid regularly.
