Chorus Grows For Changes In Rera Amid Slow Execution Of Orders, ET RealEstate

July 15, 2023

PUNE: Delayed execution of MahaRERA orders has become an issue of distress among homebuyers, who have demanded amendments in the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016, to speed up order implementation.

“There should be an amendment in RERA. We have demanded a strict time limit for hearing and decision on the execution of applications in the Act. This should be incorporated in the MahaRERA rules of 2017. Else, the whole purpose of the Act and the real estate authority would be rendered futile,” said citizen activist Shridhar Joshi.

“Why should citizens approach HC when there is a quasi-judicial body in place?” asked homebuyer Madhavi Mehta, who is planning to approach MahaRERA with a complaint.

Chairman of the Maharashtra Society Welfare Association Ramesh Prabhu said, “Though MahaRERA directs the promoter to pay the awarded amount to the allottees within 30-45 days from the date of order, it is not executed on time. When the allottees approach MahaRERA over the non-execution of the order, the first date for the hearing comes only after 12-18 months,” Prabhu said.

“ If the promoter fails to file the compliance affidavit, the MahaRERA should levy the penalty on everyday basis till the order is complied with, as provided under section 63 of RERA,” Prabhu said.

Advocate Manjunath Kakkalameli said, “I am fighting for at least 40 flatbuyers of a project, wherein orders of compensation have been passed, but not executed. I think there should be an independent mechanism for the timely execution of MahaRERA orders.”

Nine orders executed

Nine MahaRERA recovery warrant orders, eight from Mumbai and one from Pune, were executed last week, amounting to Rs 8.72 crore.
