WB RERA had replaced West Bengal Housing Industry Regulation Act 2017 (WBHIRA) , a substitute of central government’s real estate regulation act ,after it was struck down by the Supreme Court .as unconstitutional on May 4 2021.
Project promoters as per the 2016 RERA Act rules are required to get their ongoing projects registered within three months of the formation of the RERA Authority. Forum For People’s Collective Efforts(FPCE) , which played a key role in the formation of RERA Authority in West Bengal, believes that after the ongoing real estate projects in the state are registered under WB RERA, it will allay the concerns of the home buyers about the product quality and the timely delivery of homes.
