What is RERA and how will it impact the real estate industry and home buyers?

Posted by Balaji on November 4, 2020

RERA (Real Estate Regulation and Development Act) has been implemented by the

government on 10th March 2016 with the primary objective of safeguarding

homebuyers from fraudulent builders and channels of investments in the real estate

industry. The following rules have been developed in order to encourage informed

decision making by investors.

  • For any developer launching residential property over 500 square meters or eight units, it has been made mandatory to register the project with RERA and upload all the information related to the said project on the RERA website before any sale initiation is made.


  • This Act also mandates developers to deposit 70 percent of the total sum collected from buyers into a separate bank account reserved for each project and two-thirds of buyers in that project must approve any alteration suggested by the developer in the layout or plans.


  • The major benefit for customers included in the Act is builders will have to quote prices based on carpet area, not super built-up area.


  • State-level Real Estate Regulatory Authorities (RERAs) to monitor transactions related to both commercial and residential projects and ensure the timely completion and handover of the property.


How will RERA impact homebuyers?

  • Increase in the quality of construction due to a defect liability period of five years.


  • Homebuyers could have more visibility into the projects that they are considering to associate with.


  • The major benefit of this Act is that it provides a unified legal regime for the purchase of buildings. It aims to standardize this practice across the country.


RERA aims to bring transparency and accountability in the unstructured real estate

sector. RERA has provisions to penalize both the developer and promoter for late-

payments and delayed construction. Further, in case of violation, the developer risks

the imposition of heavy penalties and even losing their developer registration.

Thus, we can say that RERA is a step towards reforming India’s real estate market,

enabling greater transparency, customer-centricity, accountability, and financial

    We bought an apartment in Bangalore recently and Gangadhar made the entire process easy and seamless. Our experience with Gangadhar was outstanding and he took care of all the requirements for the property transfer end to end in a compressed timeframe. Gangadhar was patient, provided good advice and listened to all our requirements. He went above and beyond to help with a variety of other matters as well. I would highly recommend Gangadhar and his team.

    Mr. Balaji is our family acquaintance and is known to us for several years, he is also involved in philanthropic work, It is our good fortune that we entrusted the sale of our ancestral property to Mr. Balaji and his company. Mr. Balaji and his team of trusted lieutenants ensured the process right from selecting the buyer till completion of sale was completed without any hiccups and took care of all the paper work. Balaji and his team were willing to go the extra mile to ensure the sale was complete as per agreement. We would like to commend Balaji and team and hope we will have the opportunity to engage him again in the future. Wishing Balaji and team all success personally and professionally.
