Suggestions for Real Estate Developers from RERA

For escalating the accountability and the responsibility towards consumers, RERA has made it mandatory for real estate promoters or real estate developers to register all those projects that measure above 500 square meters or over a total of eight apartments. RERA has also mandated that all real estate developers need to get a valid registration number prior to making any proceedings. The real estate developers will not be allowed to advertise and market or sell the apartments without registration. For projects being developed in phases, it is necessary for the developers to get each phase registered separately.

It is essential for the promoter or the developer to submit all the important documents regarding the projects as agreed by RERA. RERA has further made it an obligation for the real estate developers to open escrow accounts in government-recognized banks. The developers must also make a deposit of 70% of the total amount that the get from the consumers. The developer has the flexibility of withdrawing this amount but he or she needs to use it solely for the purpose of developing a certain project post getting approval from an architect, chartered accountant or engineer.

In case the developer is not able to comply with these directions or violates the regulations as prescribed by the Appellate Tribunal or RERA then, he or she might face imprisonment of around three years along with a penalty of 10% of the total estimated project cost.
