Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation, Government of India warned the state governments not to temper the introductory rules and provisions of the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act (RERA). The center again deterred that the violation may set off legal action against the respective state/states.
In an official letter, subject to RERA the Union minister of state for housing Rao Inderjit Singh clearly stated the state government of Haryana- all the subordinate legislations like- rules, regulations, and schemes can’t be in violation of the provisions of the standard RERA act (central) and any such provision infused in the principle statue will be invalidated by the courts. As Haryana state government has been found diluting RERA in their draft rules, the state is thereby asked to follow the RERA rules that the central ministry has notified for the UTs without legislature. A large group of homebuyers have been seen opposing the state norms as the state tailgates maximum numbers of ongoing and incomplete projects.
Gujrat government has kept all housing projects launched before November 2016, out of RERA ambit. Other states who have submitted their respective drafts Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh have included provisions to sideline maximum number of incomplete projects. Sources say that, Karnataka and UP governments will modify their respective rules and yield incomplete projects and under the principle regulation.
“West Bengal expectedly will submit their respective RERA rules within the restricted timeframe of RERA. As this is a subject to legal challenge, thus shadowing ongoing projects might flesh out additional trouble for the state,”-said West Bengal RERA expert Mr. Mahesh Somani. Asking about the residential property sale in Kolkata Mr. Somani also added, “Currently market is facing a blue flue as the both buyers and the sellers are waiting for the state to notify their respective RERA norms, which result paucity in new project launch and haste in ongoing project completion.”
RERA defines that developers should submit each and every required valid detail of ongoing projects, such as total number of units; carpet area measurement and specified penalty if they are unable to deliver the possession within the scheduled timeline and state government should sidestep from shielding the promoters which could drag them into legal litigations.
