By Dr. Sanjay Chaturvedi LLB, PhD
Muralidhar Mahadeo Prabhu V/s G A Builders Pvt Ltd.( CC00600000000-12265) Order dated 15th January 2018
The Complainant in his complaint has stated that he is the member of a Co-Operative Housing Society which is taken up for redevelopment by the Respondent. He alleged that the Respondent had in 2007 promised that the redevelopment work of the said building will be completed within 24 months from thereon, however, the Respondent has failed to handover possession and pay rent as per the Development agreement dated October 25, 2007.
Maha RERA observed “The Complainant has not been able to point out any contravention or violation of the provisions of the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 or the rules or regulations made thereunder. Maha RERA is not the proper forum to resolve the grievance pertaining to non-payment of rent raised by the Complainant.”
