NEW DELHI: The housing and urban development ministry has filed a petition in the Supreme Court to transfer over two dozen cases filed in different benches of HCs challenging the Real Estate (Regulation & Development) Act (RERA) to one court.
 
 
According to sources, 25 cases have been filed, including one by the Jabalpur chapter of Confederation of Real Estate Developers Associations of India (CREDAI).
 
 
Government officials said six petitions of developers are filed in Bombay HC, two in Nagpur bench and one in Aurangabad bench. Three cases are pending in Jabalpur HC and 12 cases in Bangalore HC.
 
 
TOI on August 1 had first reported about the government move to approach the SC. In almost all cases, the builders' main contention is that the provision of bringing all "ongoing projects" under RERA have retrospective effect since the projects were started when there was no such law, and hence the law is untenable.
