MahaRERA issues nearly 200 orders digitally in a month

The Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority (MahaRERA) has issued nearly 200 orders after hearing cases through video conferencing from mid-July in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Over 342 cases were heard online and 187 orders issued during the period,” a MahaRERA official said, adding that the office was at present working in a 100% digital way.

MahaRERA secretary Vasant Prabhu said the response to the online hearing initiative was encouraging from noth the developers and consumers. “The online process helps speed up the process. We plan to continue with the online hearing process and encourage involvement of maximum people to be part of it,” he said.

MahaRERA member Vijay Satbir Singh told TOI both the petitioners and respondents were happy with the process while the lawyers were also finding it convenient, economic and less time consuming.

“We can hear cases from across the state and anywhere in the country. We are constantly improving our online facilities,” he said.

Singh had initiated the video conferencing hearing facility from the MahaRERA’s Pune office for the bench in Mumbai last year. “We would like to continue with the arrangements even in the post-coronavirus times,” he said.

Developers on their part saidif the technical glitches were ironed out, the online hearing would be convenient for all stakeholders.
