RERA: Centre moves SC for transfer of pleas to Delhi HC

The Centre told the bench, also comprising Justices Amitava Roy and AM Khanwilkar, that these petitions pending before different high courts should be transferred to the Delhi High Court for adjudication of these matters.

The bench agreed to hear the Centre's plea and fixed it for hearing on September 4.

The central Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act (RERA) came into effect on May 1, 2017, a year after it was passed by Parliament.

As per the Act, developers, projects and agents had till July 31 to mandatorily register their projects with the Real Estate Regulatory Authority. Any unregistered project would be deemed to be unauthorised by the regulator.

Under RERA each state and UT will have its own Regulatory Authority (RA) which will frame regulations and rules as per the Act.

RERA covers both new project launches and on-going projects where the completion/occupation certificate has not been received.

RERA makes it obligatory on the part of the builders not to book, sell or offer for sale, or invite persons to purchase any plot, apartment of building, as the case may be, in any real estate project without registering the real estate project with the authority.
