More developers filing timely quarterly reports after strict warning: MahaRERA

The Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority’s (MahaRERA) strict action against erring developers violating RERA rules have resulted in developers filing the quarterly progress reports (QPR) on the MahaRERA portal on their own, the authority said in a statement.

The quarterly progress report (QPR) provides quarterly updates on project status to home buyers and prospective investors about the way the project will be developed. It is imperative that all developers registered under the RERA update the QPR on time. However, even after notices on strict actions, a sizable number of developers don’t update their QPR page on the MahaRERA portal.

The MahaRERA had taken stringent action against developers including serving notices on suspending their projects in January 2023 when the ratio was 2 out of 746 developers (0.03%) complying with MahaRERA. In June 2023, the number improved with 333 out of 633 developers (52.6%) following the rules mentioned under the RERA Act and filing QPRs on time.

“In order to closely and effectively monitor these regulatory provisions, MahaRERA has implemented a financial quarter-based project progress reporting system from the first quarter of the projects registered from January 2023. MahaRERA has also taken action to suspend direct registration of projects that do not submit quarterly forms,” mentioned Ajoy Mehta, chairman, MahaRERA, according to media reports.
