Know More about RERA Registration

Under the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 201, the Parliament of India passed a regulation which made it mandatory for each state to have a Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA), which would benefit both buyers and sellers in the real estate sector.
RERA builder registration is essential since it has had a great impact on the real estate sector as liquidity has been tightened. Project costs have increased, and so has the Cost of Capital. Real estate has reached a new level of standardization with the introduction and application of RERA.

Why registration is mandatory for builders, brokers & agents ? 

RERA was introduced to benefit both buyers and builders alike. As a builder, you must choose RERA project registration taking into consideration the following points:

  • Buyers will not hesitate in investing in your project since you shall be required to deliver the space on time
  • You can only advertise your project after your project is registered under RERA
  • Also you will receive all clearances making your project a suitable choice for buyers
  • You have the feasibility of complaining about any matter related to the project to RERA or the Appellate Tribunal.
  • RERA ensures quick dispute resolution with transparency.
  • The risk of insolvency is reduced since you shall be required to deposit 70% of the total amount of funds collected for the project into a separate bank account. However, this amount can only be withdrawn if the architect, engineer, and CA agrees to it.

The floor material to guide or to warn the visually impaired persons with a change of colour or material with conspicuously different texture and easily distinguishable from the rest of the surrounding floor materials is called guiding or warning floor material. The material with different textures gives audible signals with sensory warnings when a person moves on this surface with a walking stick. The guiding/warning floor material is meant to give a directional effect or warn a person at critical places. This flooring material shall be provided in the following areas :-

 

a) The access path to the building and to the parking area.

 

b) The landing lobby towards the information board, reception, lifts, staircases and toilets.

 

c)  Immediately at the beginning/end of the walkway where there is a vehicular traffic.

 

d) At the location abruptly changing in level or beginning/end of a ramp.

 

e) Immediately in front of an entrance/exit and the landing.

 

2) Proper signage :-

 

Appropriate identification of specific facilities within a building for the differently abled persons should be done with proper signals. Visually impaired persons make use of other senses such as hearing and touch to compensate for the lack of vision, whereas visual signals benefit those with hearing disabilities.

 

Signs should be designed and located so that they are easily legible by using suitable letter sizes (not less than 20 mm. high). For visually impaired persons, an information board in brail should be installed on the wall at a suitable height and it should be possible to approach them closely. To ensure safe walking, there should not be any protruding sign which creates obstruction in walking. Public Address System may also be provided in busy public areas.

 

The symbols/information should be in contrasting colours and properly illuminated because people with limited vision may be able to differentiate between primary colours. International Symbol Mark for wheel chair be installed in a lift, toilet, staircase, parking areas, etc., that have been provided for the differently abled.
