Latest developments in the Haryana RERA

Update on April 28, 2021:

Property sales on the basis of super area shall be null and void: Haryana RERA

The Real Estate Regulatory Authority in Haryana (HARERA), on April 27, 2021, has ruled that if any property is sold on the basis of super area, the same shall be treated as ‘unfair/fraudulent’ trade practice on the part of the promoter. Conveyance deeds executed for a project, will also have to be on the basis of carpet area only, it said. The Haryana RERA’s move comes, following numerous complaints from home buyers that developers have been selling properties on super area rates and not carpet area rates. The regulation will be applicable on all real estate projects, irrespective of whether they are registered or yet to be registered or exempted from registration.

“No conveyance deed of a real estate unit shall be registered, except on the basis of carpet area. In cases where the real estate unit was allotted to the allottee prior to the Act coming into force, the promoter shall, at the time of registration of the conveyance deed, make disclosure of all the components constituting the super area. However, the conveyance deed shall be registered only on carpet area basis,” the HARERA said.

This means that for ongoing projects, where units have been allotted to the allottees on the basis of super area before the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016, came into force, the promoter shall disclose the components that constitute super area. If the conveyance deed has not been executed, the promoter will have to mention the carpet area, in addition to the super built-up area and what constitutes the same. The aim, is to protect the allottees from fraud when the unit is sold on a super area basis.

Chairperson of HARERA (Gurugram), KK Khandelwal, warned that penal proceedings would be initiated against promoters or real estate agents who violated these directions. The practice of selling realty units on super area basis is not only ambiguous, misleading, opaque and confusing but it also results in litigation that can be avoided, he added.


Resolutions and penalty: Gurugram RERA chairman KK Khandelwal has said that the authority has been able to resolve 70% of all the complaints ─ that is 6,598 complaints ─ so far. About 509 penalty notices have been sent and penalties worth Rs 40 crore have been imposed on erring developers so far.

Brokers under scrutiny: Strict action might be taken against brokers who have registered but not taken the licence. Going forth, the chairman has said that their registrations might be revoked. As per the RERA rules, brokers cannot charge more than one per cent as commission, split between both buyer and seller.
