We all know that in every sector there is an act of law to protect human rights and one can file a complaint under that particular act if something goes wrong. After the execution of the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, or RERA as it is commonly called, there was a sign of hope among homebuyers that this new act will finally secure their interests. And rightly so, slowly, people started getting updates about their projects from RERA website. However, the customers are still confused about how to file their complaint under RERA.
A complaint under the RERA is required to be in the structure endorsed under the individual state’s guidelines. Before filing a complaint one should keep few things in mind such as the project should be enrolled under RERA, the complaint should be registered within the time limit for violation or repudiation of arrangements of the act or the guidelines drafted under RERA.
How to register a complaint under RERA
In every state, there are different rules and regulations in order to register a complaint. Any individual who shows interest in a project can register an application with the RERA expert. The application can also be registered through the web, as per the available format. The complainant must give:
- The points of interest of the candidate and the assenter.
- Project address and enrollment number.
- A compact statement of certainties and grounds of case.
- The reliefs and between time reliefs, assuming any, looked for.
- The complainant needs to register a comparative application, in order to begin with the procedures before the settling official for remuneration under RERA.
Pending land cases under NCDRC
There are a bulk amount of land cases pending under the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC), which can take more time than imagined for the final hearing. The Real Estate Act, henceforth, may accommodate speedy transfer and demonstrate to be more successful than the NCDRC, with regards to the judgment and acknowledgment of compensation under Sections 12, 14, 18 and 19 of the RERA.
Dispute resolution time under RERA
For registering a complaint there is no particular time allotment given in the RERA. Nevertheless, a complainant ought not to be smug. Complainants under RERA will require to conform to the timespans for starting procedures, as endorsed in the Limitation Act, 1963. The timeframes under this Act fluctuate, in light of the particular cases. Furthermore, to look for dire between time help, it is prudent to approach the RERA expert at the earliest opportunity, after the move causing the grievance to make the place.
