MahaRERA since its inception till now has received 11,903 complaints and of that it has passed orders in 8,281complaints.
The total number of complaints are from both registered as well as unregistered projects across the state.

The authority received a total of 739 complaints for the unregistered projects, of which it passed an order in 616 cases.
For unregistered projects MahaRERA passed an order in 83.35% of cases it received.
According to Adv Sunil Kewalramni, MahaRERA began hearing cases not only for registered projects, but also included those projects that ought to be registered but weren’t.
The main aim of this was to provide remedy to home buyer who had invested in a project, but the builder hadn’t registered it.
Post registration MahaRERA, would take up complaints agains such projects thus providing relief to the affected party.
Apart from this, the housing authority has even formed a conciliation forum.
This conciliation forum comprises of developers as well as members of Grahak Panchyat.
The conciliation forum as the word goes, is meant for conciliation between the developer and the home buyer.
Till now the conciliation forum of MahaRERA has completed conciliation in 561 cases.
It had received a total of 704 conciliation requests with consent form both parties, remaining 143 are in process.
Adv Vivekanad Gupta, says, “Decisions help both the builder and the flat owners to settle the dispute before a competent authority. The formation of MahaRERA by Central Government has thus proved it’s a boon to both the real estate industry as well as the common man.”
