How To Check The RERA Status Of Any Project Across India?



How to check the RERA status of any project across India?

Checking the RERA status of a project is vital for homebuyers and these guidelines will help them do it

Under RERA it is mandatory for builders to register their project on its website. The failure to do so results in a hefty penalty as well as automatically points out towards the dubious nature of the builder/developer. RealtyNXT lists guidelines on how to check the RERA status of a project.

What is RERA?

The Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act came into being in 2016. The primary purpose of this act was to empower homebuyers from dubious builders and ensure that developers complete their projects during the promised timeframe.

Why should you check the RERA status of a project?

It is compulsory for homebuyers to check whether the project they will buy is RERA registered or not. However, many homebuyers either don’t do it assuming that the project is RERA registered or they simply do not know how to do it. The biggest benefit of checking the RERA status of a project is that the chances of the homebuyer being cheated, duped or left waiting for years for work on his home to finish are minimised to a great extent.

Thanks to the strict penalties mentioned in the law against those developers who do not register their projects these days most of them register their projects with RERA. However, there are still a few who do not register their projects with the housing authority.  

While RERA was launched on a nationwide level, it is bifurcated into the various Indian states. So before checking the RERA status of the project make sure you are aware of which state the project falls under. For example projects in Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur etc will fall under MahaRERA while projects in Lucknow, Agra and Noida etc will fall under UP-RERA.

These are the following steps in order to check the RERA status of a project:

  1. Visit the homepage of the RERA website of the respective state under which the project falls.
  2. You will notice a tab which reads registration. Click on it.
  3. It will then give a few options and one of those will be registered projects. Click on it and it will take you to the list of registered projects or it will open up to a page where you are required to enter the respective project’s name you are seeking information about. Once you enter the name, it will show you if the project is registered or not.

This will also be your opportunity to check if the details mentioned on the website about that project are the same as the developer has promised you or not. For example the location, carpet area of the house, the number of storeys  and the promised date of delivery of the project etc.


Note that Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh were the first states to implement RERA and their websites too went live on May 1, 2017. However, there are still a few Indian states like Mizoram, Nagaland, Uttarakhand and West Bengal among others which have yet to launch their respective RERA website. You are a homebuyer and you now have the power to decide if the project you are about to invest your hard earned money is worth it or not. If the project you are searching for is not registered you even have the option to file a complaint against it on the RERA website itself.
