RERA (Real Estate Regulatory Authority), is expected to bring accountability and transparency to the Indian Real Estate Market. It (RERA) is also expected to infuse confidence among buyers in the quality of construction and timely completion of real estate projects. Under RERA, if a developer deviates from his promises made to buyers while selling, he will be penalized heavily.
RERA Uttar Pradesh Automates Generation of Registration No. :
With Uttar Pradesh Government automating ‘generation of a registration number for a real estate residential or commercial project’, real estate developers are likely to register most of the projects under construction in the state, helping them boost their credibility among property buyers.
Those, willing to buy property in NCR section of UP (Noida, Greater Noida, Yamuna Expressway, Ghaziabad, and Meerut) can now buy houses in RERA (Real Estate Regulatory Authority) registered projects. Considering real estate project registered under RERA can assure the quality of construction and timely completion and delivery of the promised houses by the real estate developer.
Uttar Pradesh RERA website can automatically allot a registration number to each project, as soon as all the requisite documents of approvals are uploaded and the registration fee paid online. This has prompted a large number of developers to register their projects, much to the relief of home buyers.
All the registrations through online applications will now be done under the existing notified RERA rules, passed in December 2016.
As a registration number is automatically generated for a project, developers are likely to register most of the projects under construction in UP, which will help them market the projects as RERA-registered projects.This is likely to enhance the authenticity of the promises made by the developers while selling their projects.
