CREDAI for reducing human interface to check corruption

CREDAI for reducing human interface to check corruption Mumbai: CREDAI, the apex industry body for real estate developers, Thursday said the proposed realty regulator should try to minimise the human interface in the process of granting clearances and registrations to reduce corruption.

"Human interface should be minimised in the process of granting clearances and registrations, which will help in reducing corruption," CREDAI national president Lalit Kumar Jain said in a release issued here.

When the real estate regulatory Bill comes into force, there should be a single agency to attend to consumer complaints, that too as an appellate authority, after the CREDAI redressal process is completed, he said.

Confederation of Real Estate Developer's Associations of India (CREDAI) has its own consumer redressal system across its chapters in the country, apart from various courts that take up the complaints.

He also advocated that consumer forums and even civil courts should not have any jurisdiction over real estate issues if the regulator comes into force.

Newly-appointed Minister for Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation Ajay Maken had yesterday said that the government was likely to present the much-awaited Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Bill before Parliament in the Winter Session.
