Real estate developers are required by UP Rera to offer apartments based on carpet area

"There is no justification of 'Super Area' as per the provisions of the RERA Act and pursuant to other legal agreements and contracts," UP RERA stated.

On Wednesday, the Uttar Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority gave state housing project developers instructions to solely offer apartments or units based on carpet space.

 

"There is no justification of 'Super Area' as per the provisions of the RERA Act and pursuant to other legal agreements and contracts," UP RERA stated.

 

It stated in a statement that selling flats on this basis would be prohibited by the RERA Act and that the sole basis on which apartment purchases and sales are permitted is the carpet area.

"The RERA Act does not define or abbreviate the term Super Area. According to UP RERA Chairman Sanjay Bhoosreddy, "it is in fact necessary for allottees to consider Carpet Area as the actual area of the unit or flat and pay the promoter according to this area."

 

When registering a project on the portal, promoters are required under the RERA Act of 2016 to provide information about the number and kind of units, as well as the floor, balcony, terrace, and area of any other areas. They discuss the actual floor area between internal walls in this (Carpet Area).

An example of an agreement for sale between an allottee and a promoter may be found on the UP RERA portal. Additionally predicated on carpet area is this sample agreement for sale. According to the statement, selling flats or apartments on the basis of a "Super Area" is in violation of the RERA Act's restrictions.

 

Promoters must thus make sure that just the Carpet Area is used for unit sales. Legal action may be taken for violations of this clause, the UP RERA stated.
