Registration With RERA Must For Real Estate Firms In Bihar

PATNA: The real estate firms in the state would have to register themselves with the Real Estate Regulatory Authority of India (RERA), failing which the flats they sell would not be registered with the registration office, the state cabinet decided on Friday.

Principal secretary, cabinet secretariat department, Arun Kumar Singh said relevant changes in the Bihar Registration (amendment) Rules 2018 would be made to comply with this decision. RERA (Bihar) had moved the proposal in this regard, he said. The changes made in the rules would be effective from the day the prohibition, excise and registration department adopts a resolution on it, Singh said, adding that the changes made would make the system transparent and also protect the rights of persons who purchase flats or land for apartments.

The cabinet gave its nod to include under the Bihar Public Services Rights Act (BPSRA) 2011 the Mukhyamantri Kanya Suraksha Yojana and the complete immunization programme of the newborn girls. They would be included as new services put under BPSRA. The services asked by the beneficiaries would be provided in 21 working days, while the clearance of the first and second appeal each would be done in 15 days.
