Homebuyers are in the dilemma, whether opt for RERA or consumer forum

Dated on: Wednesday 24th January 2018

Before the implementation of RERA, consumer forums were the only authority to make an appeal. These forums were dealing with the case from the district, state or national level to provide relief in cases of cheating. However, the introduction of RERA got the limelight in its initial phase and homebuyers would move to this authority. Since RERA will not deal with projects that have got their occupancy and completion certificate before 1 July 2017 RERA has its own limitations. Furthermore, the consumer forums are the only remedy on which homebuyers can bank upon as certain states are yet to adopt this RERA Act.
