A plea seeking replacement of West Bengal’s HIRA with RERA will be heard by the Supreme Court

Dated on: Thursday 25th July 2019

A petition filed by the group of activists from Kolkata seeking an order to declare HIRA as ‘ultra vires’ as per the Constitution and to replace the HIRA with the RERA Act, 2016. Putting Article 254 of the Constitution as their main point they have clarified that if any provision of law made by the legislature of a state is in contravention to any provision of a law made by the Parliament, then the law made by the Parliament shall prevail, hence seeking to declare HIRA unconstitutional and void. Finally, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear a plea seeking direction to West Bengal’s HIRA with RERA Act, 2016.
