    Real Estate Regulator becomes reality

    Regulation & Development Act
    The much awaited Regulation & Development Act, 2016, Real Estate Regulator came into force from May 1, 2017 with all the 92 Sections of the Act coming into effect. Under the provision, developers shall get all the ongoing projects that have not received Completion Certificate and the new projects registered with Regulatory Authorities within three months i.e. by July end. This enables the buyers to enforce their rights and seek redressal of grievances after such registration, Minister of Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation, M.Venkaiah Naidu said. The Act ushers in the much desired accountability, transparency, and efficiency in the sector with the Act defining the rights and obligations of both buyers and developers. Ahead of the Act coming into force, Ministry of Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation has formulated and circulated Model Real Estate Regulations for adoption by the Regulatory Authorities in the States/UTs. Under the Regulations, developers are required to display sanctioned plans and layout plans of at least 3 feet X 2 feet size at all marketing offices, other offices where properties are sold, all branch offices and head office of the promoters in addition to the site of project.

    He further added that Real Estate Regulatory Authorities may take decisions on all issues preferably through consensus failing which through voting with Chairman using Casting Vote in case of a tie. There shall be quorum for the meetings of the Regulatory Authorities and if a meeting is adjourned due to lack of such quorum, such meeting can take place without quorum. Some of the major provisions of the Act, besides mandatory registration of projects and Real Estate Agents, include-Depositing 70% of the funds collected from buyers in a separate bank account in case of new projects and 70% of unused funds in case of ongoing projects; Projects with plot size of minimum 500 sq.mt or 8 apartments shall be registered with Regulatory Authorities; Both developers and buyers to pay the same penal interest of SBI‘s Marginal Cost of Lending Rate plus 2 percent in case of delays; Liability of developers for structural defects for five years; and Imprisonment of up to three years for developers and up to one year in case of agents and buyers for violation of orders of Appellate Tribunals and Regulatory Authorities, he claimed.
