Promoters must ensure compliance of issued directions to avoid penalty: UP-RERA

Uttar Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority (UP-RERA) on Friday reviewed the status of the directions passed recently and found that promoters have indulged in non-compliance of its directions besides granting them sufficient time.
During the review, it was found that out of 1,810 promoters, only 666 promoters have uploaded details of director for correspondence. The authority has issued approximately 130 notices to promoters in violation of advertisements rules.
Sanjay Bhoosreddy, chairman, UP-RERA, “The directions had been issued to ensure swift registration, extension along with bringing transparency, responsibility and answerability. We expect that promoters will act as per the directions.”

Hence, UP-RERA has issued an office notice under the provisions of section-37 of the RERA Act to promoters of registered projects and expressed its displeasure about non-execution of passed direction in a time bound manner.
Also, the authority has instructed to ensure the execution of all directions without further delay. According to the provisions of the RERA Act, non-compliance of passed directions from RERA is a punishable act and promoters will be responsible for this. The authority, using its powers under section 63 of the RERA Act, may take strict action and impose appropriate amount of penalty.

In previous months, UP-RERA had issued directions about promotion and advertisements of registered and unregistered projects and mentioning RERA registration number and portal prominently, uploading coordinates of a designated director of organization for correspondence with RERA, update and correct the filled details of projects on the RERA portal, maintain active telephone numbers for consumers and appointing knowledgeable person to answer them and activate helpline numbers for mega projects.

Apart from this, the directions include providing complete details in project registration applications, all three bank accounts with standing instructions to banks to speed up project registration process, utilize model agreement for sale uploaded on the portal for agreement with consumers, uploading all QPRs for approval of extension applications, etc.
