Aggrieved home buyers who have filed complaints against developers with the Tamil Nadu Real Estate Regulatory Authority (TNRERA), will no longer have to take the RTI route to seek details from the realty regulator. Just an application would fetch them the information.


The state government has notified the regulations for TNRERA that it should follow. These were notified on Wednesday and made public on Saturday.


As per the regulations, any complainant or their legal representative may be allowed to inspect the record of the case by making an application. Further, the facility has been extended to those not connected with the case as well. "A person, who is not a party to the proceeding, may also be allowed to inspect the proceedings after obtaining permission in writing," the notified suggestions added.


However, those inspecting documents cannot record or take notes of the documents and records.

"They cannot take pictures of the documents related to cases. But, the respective person can get the photocopy of documents for which a fixed charge would be levied," a TNRERA official said. Opening the access to information was added to the procedures of Tamil Nadu's realty regulator, taking a cue from Maharashtra real estate authority, the official added.


The Tamil Nadu Real Estate Regulatory Authority (General) Regulations, 2018 outlines the procedures that are to be followed regarding registration of housing projects, grievances by the home buyers, examination of cases and withdrawal of the 70% deposits on the project by the developer from the designated bank account.
