As the real estate industry in India continues to grow, regulatory bodies are stepping up their efforts to ensure that developers comply with the necessary guidelines and regulations. The Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority (MahaRERA) is one such body that has been established to oversee the real estate sector in the state of Maharashtra. In recent news, MahaRERA has ordered Ekta Housing to submit all documentation related to their extension application for Brooklyn Park Phase IV. This move by MahaRERA highlights the importance of transparency and compliance in the real estate industry and serves as a reminder to developers to adhere to all regulatory requirements.
In this article, we will delve deeper into the details of the MahaRERA order and what it means for Ekta Housing and the real estate industry as a whole. We will also explore the broader context of regulatory oversight in the Indian real estate market and the impact it has on developers and buyers alike. Finally, we will discuss the importance of compliance and transparency in the industry and how it can benefit all stakeholders involved.
The Brooklyn Park project is a massive residential complex spread over 22 acres of land in the western suburb of Mumbai. The project was launched in 2013 and was supposed to be completed by 2018. However, the developer failed to complete the project on time due to various reasons, including delays in obtaining necessary approvals and permissions.
In 2019, Ekta World filed an application with MahaRERA seeking an extension of time for the completion of the project. The developer cited various reasons for the delay, including a slowdown in the real estate market and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. MahaRERA granted the developer an extension of time until December 31, 2021, to complete the project.
However, MahaRERA recently received a complaint from a homebuyer who alleged that the developer had not submitted all necessary documentation related to its application for an extension of time. The complainant alleged that Ekta World had not submitted a copy of the sanctioned plan, the completion certificate of the previous phase of the project, and other documents required under the law.
MahaRERA investigated the matter and found that the developer had indeed not submitted all necessary documentation. The authority issued an order directing Ekta World to submit all pending documents related to the extension application within 15 days.
Impact on the Project
The MahaRERA order is likely to delay the completion of the Brooklyn Park Phase IV project further. The project is already running behind schedule, and the additional delay may further aggravate the concerns of homebuyers who have invested in the project.
The delay in the completion of the project has already caused financial hardship to many homebuyers who have been paying equated monthly installments (EMIs) on their home loans for many years without getting possession of their apartments. The delay has also caused mental stress and anxiety to homebuyers who are worried about the safety and security of their investments.
The MahaRERA order is a reminder to real estate developers that they must comply with all legal requirements while seeking an extension of time for completing their projects. Homebuyers must also be vigilant and ensure that developers submit all necessary documentation to the authorities.
It is essential to remember that the real estate sector is one of the biggest contributors to the Indian economy. However, the sector has been facing several challenges, including delays in project completion, non-compliance with regulations, and fraud. It is crucial for all stakeholders, including developers, homebuyers, and regulators, to work together to address these challenges and ensure the growth and sustainability of the sector.
