Bengaluru: A large number of homebuyers, allegedly cheated by builders, staged a protest here on Saturday
against the dilution of Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) by the Karnataka government.

The protesters, under the banner of Fight for RERA and Forum for People's Collective Efforts (FPCE), said the government has watered down certain provisions of the Act, which, the protesters said, were detrimental to the homebuyers.

"Implement and enforce RERA in letter and spirit," said secretary of the forum MS Shankarm who demanded speedy disposal of the complaints, under the RERA Act and Rules, and increase the number of adjudicating officers.

Shankar said the Karnataka government had diluted the important section of 3 which protects the interest of the homebuyers awaiting possession of purchased or invested homes which have not received the occupancy certificate or the completion certificate from the competent agencies.

The buyers have paid 70% - 100% of the payment, but the construction has not even reached 50%, he said.

In the memorandum, the forum said many apartment projects were built on encroached upon lakes, stormwater drains, and government land. In all such projects there were allegedly mischievous manipulations of land records, the association said adding that innocent purchasers of such apartments face the threat of demolition.
