MahaRERA has also initiated steps to temporarily suspend another 1,137 real estate projects, the regulatory body said in a statement.

MahaRERA said in a statement that these projects will be banned from engaging in any banking transactions, advertising, marketing, registration and sales. It also urged homebuyers to be cautious while investing in any of these projects.

“From the start of the project to its completion, all project-related information should be made available to the homebuyer for a well-informed decision while buying a home. With this objective, MahaRERA, based on various regulatory provisions, is thoroughly monitoring the real estate sector at various levels. A dedicated Compliance Cell has been established for this purpose. It is mandatory to update the status of each project on MahaRERA’s website and insist on the submission of compliance reports within the stipulated timelines,” said Ajoy Mehta, chairman, MahaRERA.

What is a lapsed project?

According to the Real Estate Regulatory Authority Act, 2016, developers have to register with respective RERA authorities in every state. Post registration, each project is given a specific timeline to complete the project between three to five years, depending on the size of the project. However, a project is termed as lapsed or stalled when the timeline given for completion is not met, and the developer has not applied for extension.
