In 2016, the Indian Parliament passed the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act (RERA) to protect buyers’ interests and boost the real estate sector. The Act was first introduced in 2013 and came into force on May 1, 2017. Though it is a Central Act, the implementation of RERA depends on each state as real estate is a state matter. The Uttar Pradesh Government drafted and published its RERA rules on October 27, 2016, and launched the UP RERA website on July 26, 2017.
The RERA Act 2016 was launched with the aim to regulate India’s real estate sector and protect homebuyers. Streamlining the real estate sector and the introduction of regulations also boosted the industry.

It would protect the interests of investors and create and maintain a robust grievance redressal system. The RERA Act also stipulated that all real estate promoters and developers had to register themselves and their projects for increased transparency.
