The Tamil Nadu Real Estate Regulatory Authority (TNRERA) is still to appoint its chairperson and is not in accordance with the order of Central Advisory Council (CAC). The CAC looks into the issues involving RERA implementation and had advised the body to appoint a permanent regulator by June 30. The delay in appointing a head has raised questions among urban development experts over the efficient functioning of the authority which is presently run by bureaucrats and has the housing and urban development secretary serving as an interim chairperson. TNRERA came in force on June 22 last year, and since then, has been awaiting the assignment of a chairman and two members of the regulatory authority.
S Kanagasundaram, the former president of the Association of Licensed Building Surveyors Coimbatore believes that the realty authority cannot take effective decisions and a regulator is required for smooth functioning of the body. An official from TNRERA shared that there was no delay in the registration of housing projects. An undertaking was received for the supporting documents from the applicants, and the developer would be held responsible for their self-declarations.
