The Uttar Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority (UP RERA) received 36 applications to register new residential and commercial realty projects in the month of September. The authority said that it is the highest number of applications received in a month since the formation of UP RERA in April 2017. It received 125 applications to register new projects in the first half of 2022.
According to the rules, a developer is required to register any new project with the authority and obtain a registration number before beginning construction work. RERA registers a project only if the developer gets the project map sanctioned by local authorities.
A number of these new realty projects are coming up in cities outside the national capital region. Earlier, 70% of new projects were from Noida, Greater Noida, Ghaziabad and Meerut, and the remaining 30% were from non-NCR cities like Lucknow, Kanpur, and Agra, RERA informed. “In September, 70% of new applications were from non-NCR towns and 30% from NCR towns,” Rajive Kumar chairman, UP RERA, said.
Out of 36 applications received in September this year, 24 were from non-NCR towns such as Lucknow, Agra, and Muradabad and the remaining from NCR towns including Noida, Meerut and Ghaziabad. The total cost of these residential and commercial projects is ₹3,648.35 crore and RERA has sanctioned 6931 residential and 1185 commercial units.
