Hardeep Singh Puri, the Union Housing and Urban Affair minister said that every Indian state has to follow the rule formed by the Central Government. Puri said this in regard with the West Bengal state Government effort to form its own Housing and Industrial Regulation Act.
Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri cleared the air on separate state RERA and said that there is no ambiguity when it comes to the implementation of the central law and states have to conform to it. The minister also said that a letter has been sent to the State Government of West Bengal regarding the issue and according to the sources union Government has also asked the West Bengal Government to repeal its RERA act as the Central RERA Act is already implemented.
According to the Central RERA act, the state is required to formulate their own Real Estate Regulatory Authorities, in order to provide protection to the home buyers. Hardeep Singh Puri, the Union Housing and Urban Affair minister also said that if the West Bengal Government wishes to offer a legal view to its Housing and Industrial Regulation Act i.e. HIRA then it must get it passed by the President of India and should be in consent with the law framed by the Union Government on the same subject.
On the question of 60 developers who have already registered themselves under RERA, Puri the minister said that he don’t wish to comment on anything which is not lawfully completed.
