This decision was taken by U.P. RERA on the basis of the findings of the forensic audit report of three projects of Ansal API, namely Ansal Business Park,  Ansal Business Park-II and Golf Residentia wherein it was found that the promoter has misappropriated a sum of Rs. 60.57 crore collected from the home buyers.
