RERA Consulting and Advisory

Real Estate is always a considerably significant investment, irrespective of the size of the land or building. Over the last few years, India has become a hub of businesses, and the requirement for land and buildings in every nook and corner of the country is rapidly increasing. The Government of India, along with the assistance of the State Governments, has come up with regulatory bodies that have come up with a few compliances that safeguard the interests of buyers.

A lot of delay in projects along with lack of transparency and mismanagement of funds became a problem for various buyers which prompted the birth of parliamentary act of RERA. RERA was enacted to ensure the delay of projects was avoided and to bring transparency to projects. RERA also has provisions to avoid financial frauds and take legal remedies when required

RERA, or The Real Estate Regulatory Authority, which came into existence through Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 ensures all the project compliance requirements are met per the guidelines issued by the state government and disputes, if any, are resolved quickly. Per the rules, every project and the real estate company undertaking the project are registered under RERA to ensure compliance and transparency.
