Much to the discomfort of homebuyers, as many as 5.76 lakh housing units worth Rs 4,64,300 crore are delayed in seven major cities/regions — Mumbai, NCR, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Pune — of India despite the implementation of Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) that came into effect May last year.
The data shows as many as 4,10,000 units, worth Rs 3.6 lakh crore, in Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) and National Capital Region (NCR) are facing with some issues or the others, resulting in delay in possession. In MMR, 2,10,000 units worth Rs 2,34,000 crore are stuck, whereas 2,00,000 units worth Rs 1,26,000 crore are pending in NCR. The MMR and the NCR account for 71 per cent in volume terms and 78 per cent in value terms. The maximum delay has been witnessed in MMR and NCR at 65 months each.
“In Bengaluru, the delivery of 39,000 flats worth Rs 28,000 crore is delayed, while 10,000 units worth Rs 6,500 crore are yet to be handed over to buyers. Kolkata has 13,000 units worth Rs 7,300 crore and Pune has 95,000 units worth Rs 57,000 crore that are stuck. As per report, Hyderabad has seen the least project delays during the period, with around 8,900 units worth Rs 5,500 crore delayed since 2013 or before.

In Greater Noida, around 3.5 lakh homebuyers are still yet to get possession of flats that were to be delivered from 2012.
