The Supreme Court on Monday asked chief secretaries of States to respond to queries raised by the Centre on the implementation of rules framed under the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) (RERA) Act, 2016 in their respective jurisdictions.
Last month, A Bench of Justices D.Y. Chandrachud and Surya Kant said that in March 2022 the Centre had written to States and union territories for information about the agreement of sales rules notified under the RERA Act.
However, only five States had responded till now.
The Bench Said that – “In order to facilitate the exercise carried out by the Union of India, we direct all the chief secretaries to respond to the queries raised with RERA rules on or before May 15”
It asked Additional Solicitor General Aishwarya Bhati and amicus curiae Devashish Bharuka to also file a status report after receiving the relevant information from the States.This matter was posted by the court on the third week of june.
On February 14, the top court had directed the Centre to examine whether the rules framed by various States under the RERA Act were in conformity with the interests of home buyers.
It had given three months to the Centre to examine if there were deviations in the rules framed by the States to the rules framed by the Union government in 2016 and to place the report by the first week of May 2022.
