Majority of flat owners not paid maintenance for 7yrs and have paid it for 7yrs

Dear Sir/Mam, Its big complicates story that i want to share with you. I have purchased one 1BHK flat in my native, konkan in Sindhudurg district, in 2014 in building that has total 21 flats in it (six 1bhk and fifteen 1RK). I have paid all the amount (Rs.16 Lac) to builder while purchasing the flat in 2014. Since then till date (2022) there was no action taken by builder to form society. I have been asking builder to form society past 3-4 years, but no action taken. In Jun 2015, builder asked all flat owner to pay Rs.300/- per month toward maintenance for him to be able run the building maintenance cost on monthly basis (to pay common electric meter bill) until he forms the society. So I started paying him Rs.1200/- quarterly starting Jun 2015. But except 2-3 flat owners along with me, other flat owners (17-18 flat owners) didn't paid any maintenance to builder past 7 years. Those 17-18 people are not interested to form society and wants continue by contributing as and when required. So i feel its in-justice to me and need your suggestion on what should i do in this situation. Regards, Milind Sawant
