The Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority (MahaRera) and MahaOnline have made a pact to map the entire state to help home buyers get information on their ongoing projects and nearby amenities, a senior official said.
MahaOnline is a joint venture of Maharashtra government and IT firm Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) established in March 2010 to facilitate digitisation across the state.
"We have engaged with MahaOnline which will help us map the entire state in a manner that consumers, in just a click of a button, will now come to know about the nearby facilities like hospitals, railway stations, schools, among others," MahaRera chairperson Gautam Chatterjee told a leading press agency.
He said the work is already in progress and it will be completed by May.
"It has been our endeavour to ensure complete transparency in the real estate sector, which is the genesis of this Act. The Act necessitated the developers to disclose complete details of the project along with the timeline by when it would be completed," he added.
Chatterjee said that the Real Estate Regulation Act, 2016 is helping home buyers in making an informed choice with all the details about projects at their disposal.
Maharashtra has always been a frontrunner when it comes to the implementation of Rera.
It is the only state to have set up conciliation forum where makers and home buyers can mutually solve their disputes out of court.
