Civic bodies in Rajasthan to face music over deeds for unregistered projects

Dated on: Thursday 16th March 2023

The Rajasthan Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) has directed all local bodies to withhold lease documents for plotting projects. Even though the RERA was established in Rajasthan on May 1, 2017, urban bodies such as municipalities, UITs, and development authorities continue to issue leases of houses allotted to private developers or private account holders in plotted schemes in other major cities such as Jodhpur, Kota, and Ajmer. Upon the receipt of complaints, the RERA authority issued a warning letter and stated that fines would be applied for failing to obey the guidelines. "If a local body provides lease deeds without registration, it shall be liable for penalties," stated advocate Mitesh Rathore. According to the RERA rule, if a promoter seeks to create a project with nine or more plots on a plot of land larger than 500 square metres, the project must be registered under RERA.
