The Tamil Nadu Real Estate Regulatory Authority (TNRERA) imposed a penalty of Rs 10 lakh to two developers for making a false factual statement of the RERA registration number in their portals.
A complaint was filed with TNRERA regarding the use of the same RERA registration number for two residential developments in Athipattu and Perumbakkam.
The TNRERA, in its order, said that mentioning Nolambur as the location for a project situated at Athipattu in Ambattur Taluk amounted to deceiving potential buyers..
Similarly, for another project at Vengaivasal, the location was mentioned as Medavakkam. While imposing a penalty of Rs 10 lakh, the TNRERA directed developers to immediately remove all factual misrepresentations.
However, the developers, Dawning Developers LLP and Casagrand Builder Private Limited, told the TNRERA that they were using the website, referred by the complainant, only for surveying activities at the time of page construction and the portals were under construction.
