UPRERA i.e. the Uttar Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority is to start e-court from November. According to the plan, the complainant will be required to visit the court only for the final round of arguments after which the UPRERA bench will give its verdict. This decision is taken to fasten the disposal of complaints.
Rajive Kumar, UP-Rera chairman said that presently the authority is receiving applications online and the complainant has to visit the court multiple times during the case. Thus, we plan to begin e-court proceedings from the next month as the complainant will then be required to visit the court only for the last round of proceedings.
While elaborating the functioning of e-court, Kumar said the builder will be asked to submit his/her reply after receiving an online complaint and the same will be emailed to the complainant. Once this is done, the complainant can come up with more pleas or can file a reply on the same. Similar to the earlier process, this reply will be emailed to the builder. After the round of reply submission, both the parties will be asked to submit the evidence and supporting documents.
After this, both parties will put their case strongly in the court and the authority will then either pass the judgment on the same day or can also reserve the order. The party seeking an official copy of the decision will have to apply online for the same while paying a predetermined fee, Kumar informed.
The officials said that all the complaints will be registered online once this system introduced. They also said that e-court is an efficient and time-saving process.
