Consumer body starts campaign against real estate law
Terming them anti-consumer and lagging in transparency, consumer rights outfit Mumbai Grahak Panchayat (MGP) has started online signature campaign appealing people to oppose the proposed rules under Regulatory and Authority (RERA) Act, 2016 by the state government.
The MGP is circulating letters about their objections and suggestions on WhatsApp and emails, asking citizens to send it to the state on its email address firstname.lastname@example.org
MGP has opposed RERA act rules formed by the state government claiming they are not only pro-developers but to be in clear violation of the consumer rights.
“The rules proposed by the state are defeating the main objective of the act, which was to bring transparency in the real estate business and protecting consumer interest,” said Shirish Deshpande, chairman MGP.
