The Tamil Nadu Real Estate Regulatory Authority (TNRERA) has decided to conduct hearings over complaints on housing projects through videoconferencing due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
The state’s realty regulator would be conducting its hearings via videoconferencing using the Google Meet Application platform.
“In view of the current situation of Covid-19 pandemic prevalent in Chennai and its surrounding districts, no physical hearing of complaints is possible for the time being, “a recent order by TNRERA said.
The authority has decided to conduct hearings through videoconferencing until further orders.
The date of hearing would be intimated through SMS, WhatsApp and email. A link with attachment to join the videoconferencing session would be emailed.
The concerned parties that are joining the videoconferencing session must arrange their gadgets intact with necessary accessories to ensure that hearings are held without any disruption, besides downloading the Google Meet Application to their gadgets, the order further said.
When contacted, TNRERA chairperson K Gnanadesikan said that the real estate authority had disposed of around 800 complaints regarding housing projects in the last couple years.
“Now, we will be conducting hearings through videoconferencing for the remaining 200 complaints,” he said.
