RERA act can be considered as a guardian to the buyers who are really looking forward with the hope of some protective rights of buyers. If this Act had not been created this would have made the upper hand on the builders who violate the rights of buyers by delaying, not fulfilling the agreed promises while handing over the property to the buyer.
The RERA Act has brought a ray of hope to the buyers. If it is implemented with proper monitoring there will be a reduction in the fraudulent activities of builders.
