Pune citizens clamour for speedy disposal of MahaRERA cases

Dated on: Thursday 9th March 2023

With over 6,000 complaints lingering with the Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority (MahaRERA), citizens' groups have urged that cases be resolved quickly and that more adjudicating members be appointed to hear the pending cases as soon as possible. Last week, citizen groups wrote to chief minister Eknath Shinde and deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis. In his representation, Ramesh Prabhu, chairman of the Maharashtra Societies Welfare Association (MahaSeWA), stated that the chairman and another member handle 2,000 complaints every year on average.

Citizen activists have pointed out that the position has been empty since MahaRERA member BD Kapadnis departed in 2020. They have also requested that cases in Pune and Nagpur be heard again. With Fadnavis as housing minister, campaigners are hopeful that more members will be appointed to expedite the resolution of cases. The representation was also forwarded to MahaRERA chairman Ajoy Mehta.
