  4. I have been duped by M3M builder Gurgaon in booking 2bhk under 3 years No Rent No EMI scheme.I met the builder representative Shubham Malhotra and India bulls representative Chandan ,they took Rs.2 lakh cheque on the pretext of booking a flat in their scheme.They encashed the cheque and refused the loan.Now they are making excuses ,neither any refund nor any loan in the scheme.What should I do.

    1. As per the RERA Act, 2016 read with HRERA rules if that project falls under the criteria of “ongoing project” then a complaint can be filed.However, the RERA Authority has its sole discretion to gauge about the maintainability of the case in such circumstances.For more clarification please contact at 9717790021.

  5. I have booked Flat in SRS Faridabad in 2011 and the possession is to be delivered upto August 2015. The possession offered in August 2017. Can I lodge complaint in RERA. I do not know whether the project was registered in RERA

  6. Hi there,
    I have a flat under Affordable housing policy, Haryana. The builder is demanding the EDC charges of 70k, which were never mentioned earlier at the time of application. Also he is nor passing on the benefit of Input Tax Credit under GST. Can I file a complaint to RERA, in this matter. If not, who are the relevant authorities who can help??

  7. I booked a plot with Raheja Developers at project – Raheja Aranya, Sohna, Gurgaon. There was a separate agreement between builder and purchaser, according to which I could cancel my booking after a certain period and then builder would give me guaranteed premium over the 25% amount paid. 75% was taken as loan from the bank. Now Raheja has refused to honor the agreement.
    Does this come under RERA perview?

    1. The project Raheja Aranya City comes under the ambit of Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016. In this case, we can ask for all the loss and damages due to the non-performance of the Builder.Furthermore, we are already dealing with 2 cases of the same project and the complaint has been accepted by the Gurgugram RERA Authority.

  8. Hi we have bought a flat from ABW in their Verona Hills project in Sector 76 Gurgaon. This project has been stalled for last 2 years or more. The builder is not responding or giving any reply as to when this will commence and handed over. We want refund of the money paid to the Builder. Please help us in this

    1. If the Builder is not responding and the possession date as per the Builder-Buyer agreement has been surpassed then a RERA complaint shall be filed before the HRERA Authority and therein you can ask for the refund along with the interest.

      For more clarification please contact at 9717790021.

The licensee is a subsidiary of promoter which marketed the project , collected more than 50 percent of the cost , failed to renew the license and register with Haryana RERA which is mandatory for ongoing project.

    1. Yes, as per section 18 read-with Section 19(4) of RERA Act, 2016, you can approach to RERA authority for complete refund with interest and compensation.

  12. Ist of all, I found Centrik very informative & useful Service and we r thanful for the same. My querries are :
    1.Is Haryana RERA is functional ?
    2. For better result should we prefer filing complaints before Chairman H-RERA or before Adj. Officer ?
    3. Is it mandatory for state RERA to provide the Online submission of compalints services to the complainent , if so by when is expected to be functional /
    4. In pre RERa era the Builder Buyer Agreements are biased towards the customer, is it still necessary to get BBA of pre RERA era signed, if so then the complainent would be compelled to give his consent to the partial terms & conditions (unspecifice date of possesseion, different interest rates ( while charging for late payment by alottee and different while project possession get delayed ) etc etc..
    5. What is the case number of WP filed before HC H&P filed on 20.2.18, DOH 27.4.08 reg reg diluting theH RERA by keeping developers with Just OC (instead of CC) out of the purview of RERA ?

    1. Dear Harmet, Haryana RERA is functional. The complaint shall be filed before Haryana RERA only. The adjudicating officer has not been appointed in Gurgoan till 15/6/18. Complaint filing may be online or offline but hearing shall be offline only.

  13. I have filed a case against the builder in NCDRC. Can I still file a case in RERA even if the builder has taken OC before RERA enforcement

    1. Dear,

      As per section 71, any other court would not have right to decide the matter which falls under RERA. As per section 31, any aggrieved person may file a complaint. As per our opinion, you have file case under RERA and RERA has right to ask for withdrawal of case with NCDRC. For more info, please mail us at rera@centrik.in
