Haryana Real Estate Regulatory Authority (H-Rera) has sent notices to 140 residential projects across the state for “not applying” for registration under the Act.
All these have submitted their application in “wrong format” or were “incomplete” and they haven’t received any Occupation Certificate (OC).
All the defaulters’ developers have been asked to either submit fresh/complete applications for registration at the earliest, according to officials with the interim authority.
A senior official working with the interim authority said, “We have issued notices in all those cases where registration is mandatory under the Act but the developers concerned haven’t filed any application. There are also a few cases where the applications submitted were incomplete.”
Under Section 3 of the Central Real Estate Regulation Act, no developer can advertise a project for sale unless registered under Rera.Previously, the authorities had issued notices to some developers for advertising their projects, both new and existing, without registering them under Rera.
According to industry insiders, the government currently does not have any specific number of projects that fall under the Rera in the state.
The source said, “The interim authority is now working on a list of ongoing projects, which do not have occupation certificates so that they can have a definite number of the projects under Rera.”
The process of appointing officials is underway and interviews for some top posts are going on. Once the authority is ready, the Rera website will take another month or two to be functional, according to senior government officials involved in the proceedings.
