The Real Estate Regulatory Authority has created a great positive change to the image of the whole real estate industry. Earlier, the confidence amongst the investors and other stakeholders who invested their hard-earned money in the projects and desired for taking possession on the contractual delivery date was almost shattered till the time Real Estate Regulatory Act, 2017 (herein referred to as “RERA Act”) came into force. There was a total transformation of the whole real estate industry which was earlier a one-sided game played by the builders in domination over investors.

Almost all the States and Union Territories of India have implemented the RERA Act and all are now bound by the rules made thereunder. The RERA portal is a single-window portal for both builder and investor in which registration of project, registration of agents, complaint against the builder, the complaint against the agent, compliance updation under the RERA act and rules made thereunder, regulatory updates, circulars and notifications of  RERA Jharkhand. 

After the inauguration of the RERA portal, is more transparency in monitoring the status of the project by banks, allottees, and other stakeholders of the project and the cases in litigation between the builder and the allottee are also being tracked by the management on a real-time basis.

As of now, the portal is offering just registration of the project and registration of agents and complaints against the developer is still under process to be made live. The users will now be able to register their respective projects from the ease of home, keeping in view of the COVID-19 pandemic situation because of which physical contact is negligible. The registration will be a PAN based registration, therefore the prospective applicants have to keep themselves ready with PAN number for themselves to get registered. Further, at the Litigation front, there will be Virtual hearings as introduced by the RERA Tribunal in the Pandemic situation which will also help many aggrieved allottees to get justice without visiting the courts for personal hearing.
