IN CASE OF A MULTISTORY BUILDING OR A CGHS, WHERE UPPER FLOORS ARE GIVEN BALCONY OR SPACE OF ROOF OF THE LOWER FLOOR.
This situation takes place where the Ground Floors are HIG Flats and 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th Floor are smaller than HIG flats. Because the area of the flats above Ground is lesser they get space above the roof of their lower floor flat for use as Balcony.
In this situation, Ground Floor flat owner is free from maintenance of roof. 1st, 2nd and 3rd Floor owners have to maintain the roof of their lower floor flats as their balcony. Top or 4th Flat owner is required to maintain the balcony or roof of his lower floor flat and roof of his own flat also.
The RWA or the Residents Welfare Association or Apartment Owners Association or AOA will resolve the disputes in case the problem comes due to a particular flat owners refuse to maintain or have their locked flats & no one is living in it.
IN CASE OF MULTISTORY BUILDING OR CGHS WHERE BALCONY ARE INDEPENDENT OF LOWER FLOOR ROOF.
This situation takes place where all the floors have their built-in space of rooms & toilets etc. above the lower floor flats and balcony is separately built for each flat.
In this situation all the flat owners are required to maintain their own balconies and no one maintains his roof. The roof of flat on top will be maintained by the CGHS or RWA or AOA.
WHOSOEVER HAS THE RIGHT TO USE, HAS THE LIABILITY TO MAINTAIN IT.
