FAQ-The Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 (RERA)

There remains confusion among most of the people regarding applicability of RERA Act on Ongoing projects and also with regard to power of state Govt to exclude such Ongoing project or to dilute some of the provisions of the Act in Favor of builders.

In this regard, I am attaching herewith some most frequently asked Question which I hope will be able to clarify many doubts.

(1)       Is the Real Estate Act applicable to Ongoing/Existing Real Estate projects?

Yes, as per section 3(1) of the Act, ongoing / existing projects, which have not received completion certificate are covered under the Act. The said section is reproduced below:

“……Provided that projects that are ongoing on the date of commencement of this Act and for which the completion certificate has not been issued, the promoter shall make an application to the Authority for registration of the said project within a period of three months from the date of commencement of this Act……”

Clarification: Completion Certificate (by whatever name called) means completion of entire project and not individual apartments.

(2)       From when is this Act expected to commence? Is there any specific date?

The RERA Act was assented to by the President of India on 25th March, 2016 and was notified in the Gazette of India for public information on 26th March, 2016. However, commencement of specific sections of the Act will be done in a step by step manner. First the sections regarding making of Rules and the establishment of the Authority and the Tribunal will be notified. After that the sections regarding duties and responsibilities of all the stakeholders will be notified. The entire process will take around 12/18 months.

(3)       Does this Act need consent / ratification from State Governments to be applicable in states?

No, as RERA is not a Constitutional Amendment Act affecting the States, no consent / ratification, by whatever name called is required. States are bound to implement the Act according to the timelines provided therein.

(4)       Can State Governments change / alter any section of this Act to favour Builders in their State even by passing motion in respective Legislative Assemblies?

No, the State Governments cannot make any modification, deletion, alteration etc. of any of the provisions of the RERA Act. They have to implement all the 92 sections of the Act.

(5)       Most of states have their own Apartment Ownership Act. What is the scenario, in case there is clash / differences between RERA and State Apartment Ownership Act?

First and foremost, Apartment Ownership Act have a different jurisdiction. They come into operation after the handing over of possession and is aimed at managing the associations of buyers in regard to matters like maintenance of common areas, elections, monthly charges etc.

However, if by any chance there is any conflict between a State law and RERA, RERA provisions will prevail. The Constitution is very clear on this issue, as RERA is a Central law.

  43. Hello there I am so grateful I found your web site,
    I really found you by mistake, while I was looking on Askjeeve
    for something else, Anyways I am here now and would
    just like to say many thanks for a fantastic post and a

    and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I

  44. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  45. Excellent web site. Plenty of helpful info here. I’m sending it to some pals ans also sharing in delicious.
    And naturally, thank you for your sweat!

  46. You have made some decent points there. I checked on the net for more information about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this site.

  47. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  48. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  49. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  50. My brother recommended I might like this web site.
    He was totally right. This post truly made my day.

    You cann’t imagine simply how much time I had spent for this info!


  51. It’s really a nice and helpful piece of info. I’m satisfied that you
    simply shared this useful info with us. Please stay us informed
    like this. Thanks for sharing.

  52. I just could not leave your web site prior to suggesting that I really loved the usual information an individual supply on your visitors?
    Is going to be again frequently in order to inspect new posts
