LUCKNOW: The state government and the real estate developers engaged in a fresh bout of disagreement on Sunday with UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath asking the developers to get themselves registered under Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) act through a web portal scheduled to be launched on July 26, while the latter claiming of the facility being provided too late. The deadline for developers to get registered under the RERA act comes to an end on July 31.


Speaking at a seminar organised by Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India, Yogi said that the state government was trying to remove red-tapism by providing an online registration facility for registration of developers by the deadline of July 31. "The developers need to abide by the trust of the people and the state government and ensure transparency in executing their housing projects,'' he said.


CREDAI president, Jaxay Shah, however, said the coming of any such facility like a web portal was too late. "Any such facility could have come up at least an year ago when RERA act was announced. The former urban development minister Venkaiah Naidu has been calling upon the state government to set up the RERA authority. But his call did not evoked any response. Even the present state government in UP has been there for around four months but it too did not take any such step,'' he said, while speaking to reporters on the sideline of the seminar.

Yogi said that the state government adopted RERA to stop exploitation of home buyers who could not get possession of their house timely.


"What has been happening in Noida is an eye opener. Scores of home buyers have been up in arms against the developers who did not complete the projects timely. Such things needs to be addressed,'' the CM said. Shah, however, said that it was the state bureaucracy which at times produced hindrance which eventually delayed the projects. "It is highly unfortunate that RERA holds only developers accountable for the delay in a housing project. The role of state government and the bureaucracy should also be taken into account,'' he said. Shah said that CREDAI already has a consumer grievance redressal unit to address the complaints of the home buyers.
