NOIDA: Even though homebuyers in GautamBudhNagar district have hailed the passing of the Real Estate Regulatory Bill by the Union Cabinet, they are sceptical and fear that some 'anti-forces' may weaken the proposal.


Buyers have planned to meet the Union housing and poverty alleviation minister Ajay Maken after studying the bill. They have also threatened that if the bill is not passed in the monsoon session, they will intensify their agitation and even stage a protest outside Parliament.


Buyers have demanded a proper implementation of the bill which is set to bring transparency in the real estate sector, while helping homebuyers in redressal of their grievances. Since a regulatory authority will enforce fair practice and accountability norms, buyers feel that there will be a decline in cases of property fraud which are rampant in Gautam Budh Nagar.


The investors have raised a suspicion that the lobby of real estate firms, in which money of politicians and bureaucrats is invested, may pose a problem in passage of the bill. "Except a few developers, even the big names in the real estate industry are habitual of cheating innocent investors. With the passing of the real estate regulatory bill, we hope that things will change," alleged an office bearer of Noida Extension buyers' association.


Developers on their part have welcomed the move of the Centre. "The real estate regulatory bill will even benefit the real estate players as it will develop professionalism and transparency. Even developers want a single window system as it will help in getting fast clearances of project plans. Apart from that, environment-related issues also need to be addressed," said Amit Gupta, member Assocham and MD Orris Infrastructure.


"Implementation of this bill would definitely bring vigilance and accountability in the process and further bolster the real estate sector at large. This will result in a win-win situation for every stakeholder," said Brijesh Bhanote, director (sales and marketing), The 3C Company.
