Plan to bring projects on smaller plots under West Bengal RERA

Dated on: Thursday 16th March 2023

The state government may explore placing smaller residential constructions under the purview of the West Bengal Real Estate Regulatory Authority (WBRERA) or enact separate legislation to manage these projects. Mamata Banerjee, the chief minister, has urged the housing department to consider the suggestion so that purchasers who are now not covered by WBRERA can also obtain some protection. Sushil Mohta, president of the Confederation of Real Estate Developers' Association of India (West Bengal), raised the issue of small-time local promoters bringing disrepute to the trade by defrauding homebuyers who had no protection, unlike larger developments covered by WBRERA, during the interactive session on Wednesday.
