An important meeting was held under the chairmanship of Sri Rajive Kumar, chairman UP RERA at the RERA Headquarters today with the officers of the department of Panchayati Raj, Housing Board and LDA to discuss and address the issues relating to the approval of the layout plans of the real estate projects outside the planning areas. The meeting was attended by Sri Anurag Srivastava Principal Secretary Panchayati Raj, Sri Mahendra Prasad Secretary Industrial Development and CEO LIDA, Mrs Preeti Shukla Secretary Panchayati Raj, Sri Ajai Chauhan Housing Commissioner, Sri Masoom Ali Sarvar Director Panchayati Raj, Sri MP Singh secretary LDA among others. Sri Rajive Kumar was assisted by Sri Abrar Ahmed Secretary RERA, Sri MP Mishra Conciliation Consultant RERA and Sri Subodh Rai Technical Adviser RERA.
It was explained by Sri Rajive Kumar that although RERA Act applies only to the real estate projects with area of 500 sm or more and with 8 apartments or more in planning areas, RERA has received about a thousand complaints in respect of projects and promoters from outside the planning areas mainly from the districts of Lucknow and Barabanki, although not limited to them only and the complaints vary from non- implementation of the projects to the promoter having run away with the money of the buyers. He further elaborated that Rera can not extend relief to such buyers unless the project can be registered in Rera. He invited the attention of the participating officers to the provisions of Section 3 of the Rera Act wherein a provision has been made that Rera can, in order to protect the interest of the buyers, direct a promoter to register in Rera a project outside planning area and that the provisions of Rera will apply to such a project from the date of its registration in RERA. He, however, clarified that the project can be registered in Rera only if the layout plan of the project has been approved by the concerned local authority, which means Zilaa Panchayat in most of the cases.
Rera has already engaged U.P. Remote Sensing Application Centre for carrying out the site inspection of real estate projects within 10 kms of LDA limits in the districts of Lucknow and Barabanki with the help of satellite data. A presentation was made by Sri Alok Saini scientist Remote Sensing Application Centre. Sri Saini narrated that about 40 percent of the work has been completed and the final report will be made available by the end of June 2019. Sh Rajive Kumar said that the report will be shared by all concerend departments and agencies. It was clear from the presentation made by Sri Saini that in most of the cases the projects have not been approved by the local authorities, although it was told by the AMA Lucknow that zila panchyat has approved about 150 projects over the last 5 years.
Sri Aurag Sivastava principal secretary intervened in the meeting to share the information that in some of the Zila Panchayats the bye-laws relating to the approval of the projects have not been adopted so far. He, however, he assured to direct the concerned districts to adopt the bye-laws soon.
The chairman Rera further clarified that although there are complaints regarding projects from outside planning arera from all over the state, to begin with Rera has undertaken to survey and bring within rera the projects within 10 kms of LDA limits and this exercise has been taken on pilot basis. He also emphasized the need to bring the bye-laws of the zila panchyats at par with those of the development authorities so that the project can get necessary clearances and security certificates. The principal secretary panchayati raj also agreed to it and promised to facilitate the same from his end.
Finally it was decided that the district panchayats of Lucknow and Barabanki will carry out a sustained drive to accord approval to the real estate projects within their respective areas and share the approval details with Rera. They will also work effectively to check the breaches of the sanctioned plans or the development of real estate projects without required approvals.
It was further decided to review the progress in the month of June 2019.
