Tightening up the noose, the Allahabad high court on Friday asked the state government to submit a report on the status of the implementation on the Real Estate (Regulation & development) Act alias RERA in the state.
Giving the orders after an apex body of Apartment Owners and Associations in Ghaziabad, FedAOA filed a PIL, a division bench comprising Chief Justice Dilip Babasaheb Bhosale and Justice Yashwant Varma asked the standing council representing the state to submit a report highlighting the steps taken by the state in establishing the authority for the RERA.
The next hearing is on tomorrow, 19th May 2017 where the court will examine the steps taken by the state government to implement the Act.
In the PIL, the association also alleged the government of not developing a dedicated website of RERA UP giving details of real estate projects and agents.
According to the patron of FedAOA, Alok Kumar, sections 20 (1) and 43 (4) of the RERA, mandates the state government to form the authority and set up the Real Estate Appellate Tribunal within one year from the date of notification of the Act but the government failed to do so on the said deadline of 1st May 2017.
Recently, a home buyer association has written a letter to CM Yogi Adityanath asking him to revoke the diluted RERA rules made by the previous government. The Union housing minister, M Venkaiah Naidu, recently met the CM and asked him to implement undiluted RERA rules in the state as soon as possible. Till now only nine states and six UTs have notified the Act in which the governments of Maharashtra , Madhya Pradesh and Kerala have come up with their versions of the website for the RERA.
Thank you Permanand Kumar sir. It was very helpful.
May I know the writ petition number no. in this case, if possible contact detail of concerned office bearer may be provided on my email, I need to call the person.
Sooner UP Government promulgates new RERA rules strictly as per RERA Act, the better. I wish UP Government makes the system effective to redress grievances of buyers at the earliest and become a role model for other States. All flats not handed over to buyers by 1st May 2017 must come under RERA and Developers should be instructed to take all actions as per RERA.
Writ PIL /20574/2017
I have 2 units with JP and I have paid 1.2 carores 7 years back and paying EMI @9%. RERA must focus on buyers issue.
