Complaints by buyers on rise, Rera opens 3rd bench in Noida

April 24, 2019

GREATER NOIDA: The Uttar Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority (UP-Rera) has opened a third bench in Greater Noida to tackle the rush of complaints that has been pouring in from homebuyers.

According to UP-Rera members, at least 25 complaints are being registered daily and around 100-150 cases are picked up for hearing every day. “The volume of complaints is so huge that we badly needed a third bench. Now, we hope to speed up hearing of pending cases. We have already heard a significant number of cases since September,” said Balwinder Kumar, a UP-Rera member.

Until now, the regulatory body has received 7,999 complaints and disposed 4,232 of them. Over 4,800 complaints from across NCR are yet to be heard. The UP-Rera had on April 22 rejected applications by 36 commercial and residential projects for failing to meet perquisite norms .

“There are a set of documents that a builder needs to supplement their application with. When we scruitinised these applications, we found several documents missing. We have on the outset cancelled all these applications. However, as many of these projects are already launched and are in the middle of construction, we will give these builders an opportunity to refurbish the information as required for Rera certification,” Kumar said.

The regulatory authority has also started talks with 12 builders whom it had deregistered earlier for flouting rules. “We have asked all 12 builders to come on board,” Kumar said.
