How real-estate regulator RERA failed to help homebuyers stuck in bad housing projects

The failure of the real estate regulator in Haryana to give relief to homebuyers in the Green View project developed by a state-owned company is only one instance of its limitations and indifference.

NBCC Green View is a project based in Gurugram, near New Delhi, where homebuyers have been evacuated due to faulty construction, despite the project being relatively new. Homebuyers are still awaiting resolution.

About 10 years ago, when Sanjeev Singhal, 47, booked an over 2,000 square foot, four-bedroom apartment in Gurgaon, he and his family had no clue about what was coming.

Singhal, currently working as a general manager with a public sector company, booked the apartment in the NBCC Green View project in Sector 37-D of Gurugram in March 2011. The builder was NBCC (India), formerly known as National Buildings Construction Corporation Ltd., a central government enterprise.

Singhal said he paid about Rs 95 lakh over six years for the apartment, using up all his savings and taking a loan of Rs 50 lakh to fund the purchase. The scheduled date of possession was May 2015, but NBCC handed over the apartment in December 2017, after a delay of two years and eight months, with the work still incomplete.
