The Maharashtra government has directed the civic bodies and the planning authorities to prepare and submit a list of illegal and unauthorised properties across the State to the department of stamps and registration. The stamps and registration department has been ordered to not register any illegal property in the State.
Officials have shared that the civic bodies will soon publish the list of unauthorised properties on its websites and in the daily newspaper.
Experts have opined that the number of illegal properties have gone up in the recent past and have become a major concern in the State. Several developers construct real estate properties without obtaining required permissions. The latest order will protect end-customers and will stop them from buying any unauthorised properties.
The Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India (CREDAI) Nashik has welcomed the move as identification and not registering illegal properties would bring transparency in the real estate sector. Buyers would not be cheated.
