No extension for MahaRERA registration
The Maharashtra government has denied giving any extension to the developers or real estate agents for registering with the MahaRERA website. The deadline of July 31 will stay and not be extended.
According to MahaRERA, 1,350 applications were received from developers for registration while more than 900 projects were approved. Moreover, nearly 4,500 applications were received from real estate agents, out of which 4,300 applications were cleared.
Last week the developers were allowed to make corrections in their forms and upload documents. However on Monday, the applications touched 1,300 as per MahaRERA authorities and with over 100-150 registrations taking place daily, they are hoping that all the projects will be registered by month-end. So far, 882 projects have been registered with MahaRERA in Maharashtra. Out of them, 3 are in Amravati, 8 in Aurangabad, 453 (Mumbai city 41, Suburban 164, Thane 120, Raigad 98) in Konkan, 13 in Nagpur, 49 in Nashik and 356 in Pune.
As per the act and the window period for registrations of ongoing projects was three months from May. The MahaRERA officials have repeatedly made it clear to the developers that no extension to the deadline will be given.
Meanwhile, with just a week left for completion of registration, RERA authorities also released the process of registering complaints regarding registered projects as well as complaints for unregistered projects by source. The MahaRERA secretary told to media that while the rules were already in place, they wanted to encourage people to register complaints, if any, with MahaRERA and from August 1, the authority will also take note of unregistered projects.
