UP Real Estate Regulator Issues Notices on Noncompliance of RERA Act

The Uttar Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority (UPRERA) has issued notices to promoters of four projects in Gautam Buddha Nagar for violation of Section 11 of the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016.

According to the authority, the projects that have been issued the notices include M3M The Cullinan being developed by Lavish Buildmart; Irish Pearls being developed by Irish Infrastructure; Saya Piazza being developed by RGB Infra, and Saya Status being developed by Saya Cementation.

Section 11 of the Act states that it is mandatory to display both the RERA registration number and the respective regulator’s website address prominently when advertising RERA-registered projects on any medium.

“The print advertisement released by M3M The Cullinan did not mention the UPRERA website, www.up-rera.in and RERA registration number prominently. Apart from this, the advertisements on social media of Irish Pearls, Saya Piazza and Saya Status did not mention both the RERA registration number and the website,” UPRERA said in a statement.

Pramod Kumar Upadhyay, the UPRERA secretary, said, “We are continuously identifying promoters violating the rules regarding publicity of projects. Compliance with the prescribed norms of the RERA Act is mandatory for the promotion of projects. Noncompliance with Section 11 can result in a penalty of up to 5 percent of the total project cost.”

He added that the act is aimed to ensure growth and development of the real estate sector and this is possible only if the promoters perform their prescribed functions and duties. The primary responsibility of the promoter is to provide correct information about the project to prospective buyers, the correct registration number and complete project information on the UPRERA website portal, www.up-rera.in.

There was no immediate response to the developments from the promoters. This report will be updated after receiving a response.
