The homebuyers awaiting a strong tool to take faulty builders to task under the real estate regulatory act (Rera) rules, could be disappointed, as the Haryana government registered only 15 projects till date, while hundreds are still escaping.

In the next 15 days, all ongoing projects have to get themselves registered with Rera, as the deadline is July 31.

In Gurgaon, more than 150 ongoing projects are lagging much behind the completion. The inordinate delay has deprived tens of thousands of homebuyers who have been waiting for possessions. A lot of resentment among the buyers has often resulted in protests and litigations.

Dilbag Singh, former chief town planner Haryana and one who has been appointed nodal authority for Rera, said, “Wait for 15 days, if faulty developers do not apply for registration, action will be initiated against them. We also appeal to people to inform TCP if any developer is doing advertisements, selling flats without registration.”

Of the 15 registered projects, six projects belong to Raheja developers followed by Signature Global India, Signature Builders, Forever Buildtech and others.

“The Intention of government is apparent, as officials are trying to protect developers but we will not allow it to happen. We will move court against dilution of the act,” said RS Rathee, president of Gurgaon Citizens Council.

As per the Rera, every ongoing project that has not received completion certificate (CC) or other occupation certificate (OC) from the TCP would be considered incomplete.

Mahinder Singh, 70, who purchased home at Sec 110A Mahindra Aura and is waiting for possession after inordinate delay of more than a year, said, “We are waiting for the right time to react to government’s attempt to defend faulty developers from wrath of homebuyers.”

The homebuyers under different associations are mulling to approach consumer forums or courts for redressal of their grievances, as they believe Rera is more of an eye wash and not going to help them.

“It looks like Rera is more of an eye wash. How states can dilute it when we have such a strong Central Rera? If Rera is diluted we home buyers have just one option that to approach consumer courts for justice,” said Prakhar Sahay, president Estella Welfare Association.
