Civic Bodies Ask Udh To Shelve Rera Order On Registering Schemes, ET RealEstate

June 24, 2023

JAIPUR: Several civic bodies of Rajasthan, including the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA), have written to the Urban Development and Housing department (UDH) challenging a notification of the Rajasthan Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) issued in September 2021. The order made it mandatory for all civic bodies to take responsibility to register all real estate schemes under RERA.

“We had received letters from a few civic bodies, including JDA, expressing their concerns over the notification. The civic bodies have requested us to intervene and withdraw the notification, stating that it’s not under their purview to register schemes under RERA,” said a UDH department official.

The notification dated September 27, 2021, says that whether a plan has been prepared by a housing cooperative society or a regulatory body has sanctioned it, it will be the responsibility of the civic body concerned to register or get that scheme registered under RERA. This means that all housing projects in the state should be registered under RERA. The civic bodies have to ensure this and will also have to monitor that the project is constructed maintaining all norms and by-laws of RERA.

Officials of JDA had claimed that for several reasons the monitoring and taking of responsibility of this task was not possible for any civic body in the state.

“If JDA had to register the housing schemes in accordance with instructions from RERA, then JDA will have the responsibility of completing the development work, maintaining all bylaws and norms of the RERA Act. That is not possible for a civic body as we have our own sets of laws and bylaws,” a JDA official said.

UDH officials said they were taking the plea of the civic bodies seriously. They said they may soon take up the issue with RERA officials and find out a solution.

“If such notification is followed, it would have a tremendous impact on the Prashasan Shehron Ka Sang Scheme,” another JDA official said.
