West Bengal RERA to hear realty plaints lodged with HIRA, says SC

Dated on: Thursday 18th May 2023

The West Bengal Real Estate Regulatory Authority (WBRERA) will take over all proceedings on complaints filed by home buyers against developers before the now-defunct West Bengal Housing Industry Regulatory Authority (WBHIRA). The Supreme Court has clarified that all orders issued by WBHIRA will remain valid. However, those aggrieved by an order passed by WBHIRA can seek remedy before WBRERA. This clarification brings significant relief to homeowners who had sought resolution through WBHIRA but faced uncertainty following the court's decision to revoke the law. The homeowners will not have to initiate proceedings against developers who have failed to meet their commitments all over again, resulting in time and cost savings.
