Builders must provide proof that 70% of the total payment has been deposited by them into a discrete escrow account instead of using it for some other investment.

Builders must get all the necessary consents before advertising a new project. Discounts for early bird bookings and pre-launch offers will not be there anymore.


If you fail to follow any of RERA’s rules, there some penalties will be imposed on the buyers, developers, sellers and investors For non registration of projects 10% of the project cost to be paid, For false information 5% of the project cost to be paid like that so many penalties are there to follow.


After the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 enforcement, registration of sale deed of a project unit cannot be done in the office of the sub-registrar without obtaining Occupancy Certificates or Completion Certificates.
