Despite rapid growth in the Indian real estate sector’s compound annual growth rate (CAGR), investors faced issues relating to pricing, quality, and delivery of projects due to the unregulated sector. This required government intervention in the form of stricter laws and improved regulation. The government addressed this concern via RERA in 2016.

What is RERA MP?

To eliminate unethical behavior by real estate developers, promoters, or agents, the Government of India implemented the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act (RERA) in 2016. Every state and union territory in India is required to establish a Real Estate Regulatory Authority to oversee the real estate sector within its boundaries and protect homebuyers’ interests. 

Accordingly, just like the other states, the government of Madhya Pradesh introduced the RERA Act in the state. The Madhya Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority was established on May 1, 2017, to bring transparency and accountability to the state’s real estate dealings.

Functions of the RERA Madhya Pradesh

  • Creates a productive environment to provide speedy resolution of real estate disputes

The Real Estate Regulatory Authority safeguards homebuyers’ interests. The act came into existence on 10th May 2017. The RERA Act significantly brought transparency to the real estate sector. 

The RERA act is intended to assure, providing fair treatment to buyers and developers, and induce transparency in the system. Contrary to other state authorities, RERA Madhya Pradesh is implementing the RERA rules with extreme effort. 

Impact of RERA on Real Estate

However, its implementation was fairly recent, the RERA Act has already been able to regulate and introduce many changes throughout the sector in India. RERA has made it mandatory for real estate agents to register them with the state RERA  prior to facilitating any project and transaction. During the project registration, the promoters are required to list the agents associated with a project. Without registering with RERA, the agent is not allowed to carry out tasks associated with real estate projects. Asking agents to get them registered to bring transparency among the existing projects. 

An agent is liable for a penalty of Rs 10,000 on the failure of registration. This may extend upto five percent of the project cost on continuity of violation depending upon the related sale or purchase.
