As many as 72 complaints have been received against builders in Delhi under the central real estate law, according to an RTI reply. According to the Delhi Real Estate Regulatory Authority(RERA), out of 72 complaints, 24 have been resolved till last week.
Only 16 real estate projects have so far been registered under RERA in the national capital, it said.
Under the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016, all states are mandated to constitute their respective real estate regulator RERA which provides proper protection to home buyers.
“Seventy-two complaints have been received against builders in Delhi. Out of which, 24 have been resolved,” Delhi RERA has said in reply to an RTI query.
Responding to a question about action against builders, the real estate regulator said that either the applicant get possession of the property or he may refund the amount.
In November last year, Delhi got a full-time real estate regulator under RERA with Lt Governor Anil Baijal appointing retired IAS officer Vijay S Madan to the post.
The act was enacted by Parliament and states were given powers to notify their respective rules and appoint regulatory authorities.
