Dear All

I am a 71 year old retired person living in chennai.

Sterling Holidays were to develop their OWN RESORT at Yelagiri, like the ones they have in Ooty, Kodai, etc.

In the year 1994 I signed an agreement with the company considering that one can reach Yelagiri within 3 hours from chennai. I paid around Rs 37000.

The agreement is for 99 years and I am supposed to get one week every year.

It would have been an ideal holiday place, my family thought.

The agreement COMMITTED that they will construct their OWN resort in Yelagiri.

They also described the details of the plot, like location, extent of land, 17 acres, etc, in the agreement .

Visit to that site was also arranged for us.

Agreement also stated that if they fail to construct own resort they will refund my amount with 18% interest PA.

As the years went by, I noticed that instead of constructing own resort they leased out a resort.

When I visited it, I was thoroughly disappointed. Hence instead of spending full time, we returned from Yelagiri.

Their senior executive sent me a mail assuring that they will soon start construction of own resort and added that till their own resort is ready, I need not pay annual maintenance charges.

Disregarding their commitment they continued to send mails and SMSs asking me to pay annual maintenance charges. They also reduced my annual number of days accrued .

I recently sent a mail to them and asked them to refund my money with interest as per term of agreement.

I need the amount to meet my and my wife's medical and other needs.

I also approached a Chennai based Consumer Action group and gave all details.

They agreed with my stand and sent a mail to Sterling couple of months ago.Sterling are yet to reply that mail.

Kindly advice what I can do to get my money.
