The Lok Adalat of Madhya Pradesh RERA would be held on April 10 via video conferencing due to rising Covid-19 cases in the state.
Officials said builders and complainants who reach a consensus before the Lok Adalat will have to inform RERA thorough e-mail by April 9. The parties have to appear before RERA through video conferencing between 10.30am and 5pm.
Officials said efforts would be made in the Lok Adalat for consensus among confronting parties. RERA has also appealed to the parties concerned to try to reach a consensus in as many complaints as possible.
RERA was set up due to increasing complaints against builders and real estate agents. The complaints were mainly regarding late possession of houses, irresponsible behaviour of promoters after the signing of agreements and a host of issues.
RERA is a government body whose sole purpose is to safeguard the interest of homebuyers as well as lay a path so that promoters and real estate agents get a chance to come up with good services.
RERA came into existence in MP on May 1, 2017. Most of the complaints in the state are related to delayed possession. The role of RERA has become crucial since the state government has launched a drive against land mafia. Officials said, most of the complaints are from state capital Bhopal and Indore.
