Around 40,00 flats to be delivered this year in Noida: UP-RERA


At least 40,000 flats in Noida and Greater Noida are set to be delivered in 2019, officials at the Uttar Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority (UP-Rera) have said. They have arrived at the figure after carrying out a series of inspections of housing projects last month. Most of these projects are registered with the regulatory body and are in their final stages of completion. In their review last month, the Rera teams had examined nearly 50,000 flats, of which 40,000 are at various stages of complettion and are likely to be delivered this year.

Some of the major builders whose housing projects had been scrutinised over the past one month are Today Homes, Logix, Rudra Buildwell, Mascot Homes, Omaxe, Panchsheel Buildtech, La Residentia Developers and Geotech Homz, among others. Most of the housing projects are being developed over the past five to seven years.

“These are projects by builders who are registered with the Uttar Pradesh Rera. We have started keeping a close watch on the progress of their construction, so that the builders meet the latest deadlines,” Rera member Balwinder Kumar said.

DTCP cancels licences of 31 ongoing real estate projects across Haryana


The department of town and country planning (DTCP) has cancelled licences of 31 ongoing real estate projects across Haryana for violation of norms. The order from the department further stated that directors of these real estate companies could be debarred from getting project licences in the future.

The maximum number of cancelled projects are in Gurugram. Out of the 31 projects, 14 are in Gurugram in areas such as sectors 62, 70A, 70, 71, 95, 74, 73, 108 and the Gurugram-Manesar urban complex, five in Sonipat, three in Faridabad and another three in Palwal. The cancelled projects, which include residential and commercial ones, are either under construction or partially constructed. The builders have been restrained from sale or purchase or any other transactions related to the colonies concerned.

The licences have been cancelled for a range of reasons such as non-payment of external development charges (EDC) and bank guarantee, missing deadlines, non-renewal of licence, non-compliance with DTCP’s building norms etc. According to sources, DTCP is yet to receive Rs 200 crore in EDC from builders involved in these projects.

Meanwhile, Jitender Sihag, chief town planner, DTCP, Haryana, has ordered the district town planner (headquarters) to prepare a list of real estate companies which and directors who have been debarred from grant of licence for future projects. The order further stated that if a licence would be granted to a such a company or director due to lack of reports on the same, the officials granting licence as well as the DTP (HQ) would be held responsible for it.

Thousands of buyers have invested their money in these 31 commercial and residential projects. Officials, however, said they would not be affected by the move because the government would take over and complete the pending projects. In case DTCP takes over a project, the move would not have any financial implications for buyers as the government would meet their liabilities, an official said.

“This order will ensure that directors who or companies which are debarred do not cheat buyers again. The directors or companies concerned are not serious about compliance with DTCP’s rules. Once the project licences are cancelled, the takeovers will be done according to rules and public interest would not be hampered in any way,” said RS Batth, DTP (planning), Gurugram.

After demonetisation, liquidity crunch may inflict more pain on real estate sector


Two years ago, demonetisation caused upheaval in many sectors and the real estate sector also had to bear the brunt. The analogy was that the much diabetic sector required insulin (demonetisation) injections after which it was constantly monitored on the treadmill through measures such as amendments to the Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Amendment Act 2016, Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act (RERA) and the Goods and Services Tax (GST).

The maximum impact of demonetisation was felt on land and luxury residential segments where prices had corrected by almost 30 per cent as these were the asset classes where maximum investors were seen to park black money. But sales started to pick up on the back of affordable housing launches, especially the government’s impetus on Housing for All by 2022 and the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana scheme.

When it seemed that the pain was more or less reduced with these measures being in place and real estate prices getting rationalised, the recent non-banking financial company (NBFC) crisis, triggered by the debt-pile in IL&FS, and the cascading impact on several NBFCs, caused a stir in the residential markets.  Instead of ‘insulin injections’, the sector now requires a ‘booster’ dose of liquidity from the government, say experts.

Preceding the recent financial turmoil, a wave of structural reforms had swept the real estate landscape. “Just as the market appeared to be gaining some strength, the aforesaid financial shake-up has caused a rewind-like situation amongst the financial community,” said Arvind Nandan, Executive Director – Research, Knight Frank India.

The NBFC cash crunch has had a cascading impact on the somewhat improving residential real sector. “This is primarily because for last few years, developers had been availing term loans from NBFCs and Housing Finance Companies (HFCs) and any turmoil in the latter is bound to impact the Indian realty industry. Further, at a time when the festive season fervour and loan melas are expected to boost residential market sales, the state of financial markets is likely to play a vital role,” he explained.

Post-demonetisation, land prices that were inflated due to black money deployment had come down drastically, corrected by almost 30 to 40 percent. Prices of luxury real estate projects corrected by 30 percent and there was no appreciation for almost three years. “Today, the sector is suffering from a new ailment (liquidity crunch) post the NBFC crisis. Earlier, an insulin injection of demonetisation was required to reduce the deployment of black money in the sector. Now we need a booster dose of liquidity from the government,” said Pankaj Kapoor of LiasesForas, a Mumbai-based real estate rating and research firm.

The next steps should include rationalisation of tax structure and stamp duties and electronic registration of properties. While GST on affordable housing has been reduced to 8 percent, for other properties, including under construction projects, it is still 12 percent. This, say experts, is an impediment for home buyers who are preferring to buy ready-to-move-in properties that do not attract GST.


Over 80 villagers arrested for stalling work at Wave’s project in Greater Noida

Over 80 villagers arrested for stalling work at Wave's project in Greater Noida

At least 84 people have been arrested over the past two days for staging a protest outside an under-construction project of the Wave Group in a Greater Noida village over additional compensation.

The protesters, from whom land had been acquired in Kacheda village in 2010 for a housing project called Hightech City, have refused to hand over the land, demanding 64% of the amount already paid to them as additional compensation. The villagers, who have grown crops on the land earmarked for the housing project, allegedly fought with the labourers when they reached the village to start construction work on Friday. While 63 villagers were arrested on Friday, 21 more were sent to judicial custody on Saturday.

The villagers claimed they had asked for five more days to hand over the land to the builder, but were told to vacate immediately. As a mark of protest against the police and administration, the villagers have now put up a board saying no leader from the ruling BJP, whom they had voted to power, would be allowed in the area.

Narender Kumar, a Kacheda resident, said no BJP leader had come for their support. They sought a meeting with party MLA Mahesh Sharma, who had adopted the village under Adarsh Gram Yojana.

“The administration and police have been harassing the villagers for the past three days. Our crops were destroyed by the developers’ men who drove excavators on the fields. Nobody from the ruling party came to support us. We have taken our plea to many local and national leaders, including MLAs and MPs, but to no avail. All we want is an extension of five days to hand over the land,” said Mahender Pehelwan, a villager.

Told about the allegation, BJP district president Vijay Bhati said: “No sooner did we get the news, we sent a team to the village to speak to the people about their demands. Another team would be visiting the arrested villagers in jail on Monday and talk to them.”

A spokesperson for the Wave Group dubbed the farmers’ demand “illegal” and pointed out that it had been quashed by the high court in 2017 when the villagers had filed a suit against the building company for additional compensation. “The land was purchased directly, through one-on-one negotiations with the farmers. The compensation given to the villagers was more than the prevailing land rate at the time of purchase. Unfortunately, some anti-social elements are misleading the gullible farmers for their own vested interests,” the spokesperson said.

The villagers said they had been paid compensation at the rate of Rs 93 lakh per acre when land was acquired from them in 2010. The farmers are now demanding an additional 64% of the amount paid to them.

Vijay Kumar, the station house officer of Badalpur police station, said the villagers had been warned against continuing with their protest. “We had orders to hand over the land to the builders. They are now the legal owners,” he said.

“However, the people who were protesting refused to leave the area and stalled construction work by lying down in front of the excavators. They even fought with the labourers and police constables, because of which we had to use batons to disperse the crowd. On Friday, we arrested 63 people. The next day, 21 more were sent to judicial custody by the court,” Kumar said.

The officer said two separate FIRs had been filed. The first one has the names of 24 villagers and the second one is against 150 unidentified people. All of them have been charged with rioting and causing damage to public property, apart from other provisions of the IPC.
