Rajasthan RERA serves notices to nine developers for violations


After nearly one-and-a-half year, the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA), Rajasthan, on Wednesday once again swung into action and issued notices to nine developers who were allegedly violating the norms.

The authority cancelled the registration of one project, while it issued show-cause notices to developers for advertising their projects without getting registered under the RERA (Rajasthan).

An official source said, “One developer who had proposed a project in Pratap Nagar near NRI colony has allegedly claimed that the land belongs to him. For the same, an affidavit was submitted, while registering the project at RERA. However, a complaint was received against the developer and during examination, it was proved that the land doesn’t belong to him and RERA cancelled the registration.”

To others notices were issued also under Section 35(1) of the RERA Act 2016 to builders for advertisement of project without prior registration. The authority has also directed these developers to stop such illegal actions immediately and explain in writing within seven days. “The developers violated the law as the advertisement, market, book, sale or offer for sale or invite person to purchase in any manner, any plot, apartment or building in the real estate project prior to registration of the sale under the said Act is prohibited,” said the source.

The authorities would impose penalty if these developers are found guilty. “In case the explanation is not submitted within given time, the authorities may take action,” said a source.
