I have been thinking of writing this for long now but kept on telling myself, have patience, things will get better. But then with these rogues around, I dnt think this is gonna happen anytime soon and thats when I decided to write this review and save others if possible.


So I bought a flat in GK golden city in the beginning of 2014. Back then their marketing guy, Mr Srinivas, met me as if he's my best friend. I was shown a model flat and I was told all the fittings will be exactly same as you see here, like Jaguar or equivalent bathroom fittings etc. The completion time promised that day was end of Nov 2014.


Within a few months time, the first shocker I got from GK shelters was about deadline. They said we never promised Nov end, we had said Dec end and a grace period of 3 months. 1 month seemed a small time so people agreed. But that was just the start of our plight. Next shocker came in terms of sliding windows. They started calling every customer asking if they want 3 track window or 2 track(2 track is without net). When we questioned them, they said, we never promised 3 track window, it was never there in model flat(the model flat was razed by that time). . I asked them to refund money for the window so that I can put it myself and they refused. We were made to pay for the third track(fro me it was about 12000).


The project is already delayed by more that 2 yrs(with grace period it should have completed by Mar 2015).


The bathroom fittings they used is Ess Ess(I dnt know since when Ess Ess became equivalent in quality to Jaguar). Aluminium windows are such cheap quality, they are not even fitted properly and it leaks during rains. The top floor flats leak from the top and sides. We were promised 3 lifts(2 passenger and 1 service lift). The lift used is very bad quality and has been getting stuck every now and then, ever since it was installed. The service lift is yet to be installed. They promised to have Fire fighting equipment which is yet to be installed. They promised STP and it is still not operational. They are yet to provide us all the amenities they promised(I doubt if it will ever happen). The earthing is not fitted properly and as a result we get current leak in electrical equipment.


The surprise was the kind of labour used. The guys who were hired for cleaning and doing the job of labours have been used for patch work, fixed electrical issues(they added more issues than fixing), painting etc.


The marketing person whom I mentioned abt in the start, had a spat with the builder and has been thrown out. They have not paid the labours, lift company, the guy who was supplying grills to cover ducts.


Initially when we were questioning the delay, they mentioned about unsold flats and fund issues. The only contact point for us was Mr Srinivas(the marketing guy). After he was thrown out, the builder stopped meeting us. When we formed a group and met the builder in his office, he was behaving like a hooligan. The father-son duo who manage this GK Shelters shouted at us as if we are beggars and not their customers.


Now this guy has taken funds from Bank of India to build the structure. Looks like they have not paid the bank dues and as a result BOI recovery agents had come to seal the unsold flats.


The builder does not have many flats left for selling but the land owner is still selling flats from his share. Save yourself from falling prey into this guys hands.


I am told that they had started two projects in Whitefield, one of them was stopped as they did not have enough funds to sustain. Now they have one ongoing project in Whitefield, GK Tropical Springs. I came to know very late what they have done in their earlier projects GK Lake View and GK meadows and thats how I fell into wrong hands. Save yourself. Don't believe any person claiming to have bought a flat with GK Shelters. They pay some cut to the people who recommend new buyers to them.


I would be very very happy if I am able to save any one person with this post. Cant put my name so please accept my anonymity.
