The association members also claimed that the layout plan to be around 20,000 builder floors have been approved in the city as the policy came into effect in 2019. Now, only three floors are allowed as the cost of the floors is increased.

The government has also collected around rs 1,00 crore since then and the group of builders also said in a memorandum have submitted to the expert committee.
