The Government of Haryana is planning to open an office for its Real Estate Regulatory Authority in Gurugram. The Chief Minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar announced this while addressing the media during his recent visit to the city. He also informed that the government will soon set up an office in Chandigarh and Panchkula.
Citing the problems faced by the buyers due to delay in delivery of their homes, the Chief Minister directed all the developers to register their projects and do the business as per the guidelines of the RERA to avoid penalties.
The announcement has brought in a huge relief to homebuyers in the city as they had no authority to file complaints against developers for delay of projects. Experts state that this decision by the Government to facilitate easy access to RERA office will benefit developers, buyers and other realty stakeholders at large.
An official from RERA Haryana stated that about 22 developers have applied for the registration of their projects with the authority. Out of these projects, two are located in Sohna, five in Bahadurgarh and fifteen in Gurugram. The official has also informed that only nine developers have been registered so far in the city.
Last month, Haryana government issued show-cause notices to few developers for violating RERA rules and advertising their projects without registering the same with the H-RERA. It has to be noted that Haryana RERA has not launched their website yet and it is expected to take some more time for the website to be ready.
