Dialogue on Real Estate Regulatory Act - A boon or bane

04 December 2017

Our School held its second public interaction in collaboration with NIUA and India International Centre on 1 December 2017 in New Delhi.

For long, home buyers in India were at the receiving end and have complained about real estate transactions being lopsided and heavily in favour of the developers.

The Government of India enacted the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act 2016 on 26th March 2016. This came into effect from 1st May, 2017.  Would this act help the home buyers? What are the loopholes and procedural teething problems with this act? Are states diluting the main intent of this act? What problems do financial institutions like banks, etc. anticipate in its implementation? Though this is a topic of immense public scrutiny and debate, there are many aspects that need better understanding, clarification and debate.
In order to develop a better understanding of contemporary issues facing built environment sector and to provide industry inputs to policymakers, RICS India and RICS SBE are organizing a Panel Discussion on the 1st of December at the India International Centre Annexe. The programme is co-sponsored by the NIUA and the India International Centre.
The first dialogue in this series was organized on 16th November on “GST, Demonetisation and the Built Environment Industry” at the IIC.  The second dialogue in this series is being organized on 1st December 2017 at India International Centre, New Delhi.
