Dear Sir / Madam,

Parking space(s) allotted to all purchasers is mentioned in the Sale Agreement as well as in the approved plans. Legally, as per the latest Development Control Regulations (DCR) prevalent in India, the builder is supposed to provide for one single parking space for each and every apartment / flat in the building. Usually, this parking space is within the dimensions and periphery of the plot of land that is being constructed, and cannot be vaguely referred to by the builder as being in an adjacent open space, nor in somebody else's adjoining open plot of land. You are being refused parking simply because you do not have any legal right to park your vehicle in someone else's plot of land. If the builder has charged you for the parking space, and the builder is not in a position to provide you with a specific parking space in the building compound, you should ask the builder to refund the pro-rata amount charged for parking space.

Check provisions of local act regulating apartments/flats and take suitable legal recourse.
