The Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority (MahaRERA) has decided to hear only urgent cases filed by homebuyers during the extended lockdown until May 17. The regulator will continue its operations and online delivery of all services including project registrations, project extensions and most importantly filing of complaints.
This will be done with all staff working digitally during this period. The working of MahaRERA from May 18, will be decided only after further review and subject to further directions from state and central government, the regulator said in a statement.
Only cases that require immediate attention will be listed following an application from either related parties and urgency of the matter will be decided by the full bench of the authority.
The regulator had earlier announced that registered projects where completion date expired on or after March 15, 2020, the period of validity for registration of such projects will stand extended by three months.
In March, the authority had initiated Suo Moto action against 85 realty projects and the last order was signed by the regulator on March 18, when it decided to shut its offices partially due to Covid19.
