A lot can go wrong for people looking to invest in the property market in India. Not so if the real estate you are interested in belongs to Uttar Pradesh in general and Noida Ghaziabad in particular.
Roaring Success of UP RERA:
UP RERA has earned itself the reputation of being the most effective RERA authority in all of India with a close to 90% redressal rate of complaints. As per the latest press release issued by the UP RERA; 42,000 of the total 47,000 complaints registered from May 2017 to December 2022, have been disposed of.
To give you the context, 40% of the total Indian real estate grievances originate in the state of Uttar Pradesh. And to be this effective despite having so much burden speaks volumes about the efficacy of the authority. In contrast, we have Odisha RERA which pretty recently conceded its inability to redress complaints in the given legal framework.
What is behind the success of UP RERA?
UP RERA has been quite stringent against errant developers and promoters. And this has helped in reigning in realty frauds and discrepancies in the state giving much-needed relief and confidence to investors. Just a few weeks ago, UP RERA warned 18 real estate promoters for non-compliance and is now going to blacklist them and freeze their account. Once blacklisted they can no longer build or promote any new construction. In addition, an additional penalty can also be levied to compensate homebuyers.
The good news is none of them are from Noida and Ghaziabad. And that reflects well on RERA efficacy in minimizing frauds and discrepancies in NCR – once infamous for most of the complaints
What is RERA?
For those uninitiated, it is mandatory for developers to register their real estate projects with the RERA authority of that particular state. Upon registration, they are allotted a RERA registration number which has to be used at all times in matters of sales, promotions, and advertisements. Any deviation from the rules and be ready to face the consequences.
