AHMEDABAD: Gujarat National Law University, Gandhinagar (GNLU) conducted a certificate course on real estate laws recently, keeping in mind country’s aspiring stakeholders in the real estate industry. Realizing the dearth of awareness among real estate stakeholders regarding real estate laws, this was GNLU’s second endeavour in promoting these laws; the first one being a national symposium of realty law that was organized recently.
The weekend certificate course was attended by builders, developers, real estate agents, housing finance institutions, architects, civil engineers and lawyers in large numbers. Designed and coordinated by Anand Shrivas (CCEL Research Fellow on Real Estate Laws), the course received a healthy response and GNLU now plans to conduct similar courses across India in various cities in order to train real estate professionals in the legal aspects on real estate.
The certificate course comprehensively dealt with three tiers of regulations governing real estate; namely the centre, state and local laws.
