RERA seeks Karnataka government’s help for action against builders
Karnataka’s Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) has knocked on State Government’s door for help. This is because despite passing judgements against defaulting realtors and builders, the authority has been unable to help the aggrieved home-buyers due to lack of support from deputy commissioners.
The regulator has been able to provide compensation to the home-buyer in only one of the 288 cases.
In a letter written to the Department of Revenue and Housing, the authority has complained that the Deputy Commissioners of Bengaluru Urban, Dakshina Kannada and Dharwad are not honouring the judgements of RERA Karnataka.
Of the 288 cases, 285 pertain to the Bengaluru Urban district.
