The newly appointed Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath, has been appealed by the homebuyers in NCR and other regions of Uttar Pradesh to rescind the Real Estate Regulatory Act (RERA) rules made by the state. They want new rules to be made to complement the rules made by the central government.
On one hand, Noida Extension Flat Owners Welfare Association (NEFOWA) has written a letter to the CM, majorly highlighting the demands for RERA. On the other hand one more association by the name Fight for RERA had tweeted to the CM and is planning to send a letter to him to update him about the situation.
NEFOWA and Fight for RERA demand that the rules of RERA should not be weakened and the authority should be regular and transparent.
Rescinding the rules will give a hope to homebuyers all over to India and at the same time will also retain the trust of citizens in the government and the Prime Minister.
Along with the demand of notifying fresh rules, NEFOWA has also demanded an audit by Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG), of Noida and Greater Noida Authorities. It also wants unethical officials to be investigated thoroughly by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). In fact, it wants all the officials of Noida and Greater Noida Authorities, be it junior or senior, to be terminated as it feels they have always been partial towards the builders.
NEFOWA and Fight for RERA requested the CM to give orders to the builders to execute construction, strictly follow the UP Apartment Act and pay penalty for the late delivery to homebuyers.
Uttar Pradesh was one of the first states to make the RERA rules, but soon it weakened the effect giving provisions to certain kinds of projects and builders taking undue advantage of those provisions.
