The Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 (the Act, from hereon) is an initiative by Indian Government to enhance transparency in the real estate related transactions by creating a systematic and a uniform regulatory environment, thereby protecting consumers’ interest and making real estate developers liable for timely completion of projects.

These are the five major objectives of RERA, 2016.

  1. To establish the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA)
  2. To promote transparency and efficiency in the sale of real estate projects
  3. To protect the interest of consumers in the real estate sector
  4. To establish an adjudging mechanism for speedy dispute settlement
  5. To set up an Appellate Tribunal to hear appeals from the decisions, directions or orders of the RERA

Initially, the bill was supposed to cover only residential projects. On further amendments, commercial projects including shops, offices and buildings were also included.

Yes, A Central Advisory council will be set up to advice the Central Government on the implications of the Act to recommend policies in order to protect consumers’ interest and to supervise the growth & development of the real estate sector. In addition, there will be a dedicated Appellate Tribunal set up for RERAs to hear appeals from orders of the RERAs and the adjudicating officer.

In order to escalate the responsibility and accountability of real estate developers towards consumers, the RERA has made the following compulsory for them:

  1. It is mandatory for the real estate developer to register the project with the RERA and obtain a valid registration number before proceeding
  2. Any kind of marketing, advertising or selling of units is strictly prohibited before the registration of the project
  3. The real estate developer is required to submit all documents related to the project which is considered necessary by the RERA
