Chandigarh:The Tricity Association – ‘Property Consultants Associations’ of Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula has held a seminar to discuss implementation of Real Estate Regulatory Act and the major and common issues being faced by property consultants in this area.
According to this act, registration of property consultants is mandatory and they cannot facilitate the sale, purchase of any plot, apartment or building without obtaining registration.
As per the laid norms, no promoter should advertise, market, book, sell or offer for sale, or invite persons to purchase in any manner any plot, apartment or building, in any real estate project without registering the real estate project with the Real Estate Regulatory Authority established under this Act.
Suresh Aggarwal, President, Haryana Property Association, has made a suggestion to form a joint action committee to handle the common problems relating to RERA and goods and services tax (GST).
The joint forum will take up the issues related to the real estate consultants with the authorities concerned. Kamal Gupta, general secretary, Chandigarh Property Consultants Association, suggested that in case a dealer gets himself registered under the RERA, he should also be authorized to examine the files relating to different properties to avoid frauds in the real estate business.
Kamaljit Singh Pannchi encouraged the members to call regular meetings of Tricity Associations to sort out different issues.
In Chandigarh, Chandigarh Housing Board (CHB) has launched a website — rera.chbonline.in — for city-based property dealers to get registered under RERA. Currently in Chandigarh there are still 400 unregistered property consultants operating in the city.
