Jaipur Developer Accuses Rera Judge Of Favoritism, Real Estate News, ET RealEstate

June 23, 2023

JAIPUR: A developer has filed a complaint against a presiding officer of the Rajasthan Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) court. The developer has accused him of being biased and showing favouritism.

As a result of this complaint, the RERA court has declared the developer as non-compliant for not following its orders. Notices have been issued to all directors of the builder group as well as their chartered accountants instructing them to attend the upcoming hearing.

Authority member Salwinder Singh Sohata considered the lack of compliance regarding the decision made on the petition as an act of defiance.

A RERA officer said that a petition was filed against the developer, demanding a full refund with interest due to non-delivery of a flat on time in a residential project. After hearing the petition, the authority members ordered the builder group to refund the money without interest on April 6, 2023.

“Despite this order, the builder group failed to reimburse the complainant. Instead, it wrote a complaint letter to the authority accusing RERA member Sohata of issuing a biased decision. The builder’s CA and representatives claimed that they requested another hearing date in the matter but their plea was ignored, resulting in an unfair verdict.”

Moreover, two other petitions were previously filed with the RERA authority regarding delayed possession of flats in the same project.

The petitioners sought a refund of their deposited money due to the builder’s failure to deliver on time. However, the builder presented its side stating that the project was completed and requested possession to be granted. Consequently, the RERA authority ruled in favour of the builder, denying the refund and ordering the delivery of the flats.
