A) Firstly buyer should know if the project is RERA registered. Here are some points where the consumer can know or check if the project is registered or not. Every compliant have unique RERA number, ask for that. Let’s see more methods on how one can know while exploring or searching the house

B) How Carpet Area Definition Changed in RERA

According to the Act, the carpet area which is a usable area of the apartment will include the areas of the internal walls only. Balconies, terrace, verandah won't be the a part of carpet area calculation. Until now the developers used to use built-up area instead of carpet area to sell the project, but RERA purpose is to bring uniformity and hence from now developers have to advertise using carpet area. It is an end of the practice of builders selling flats on measurements like (sum of carpet area, wall thickness, ducts, exclusive balconies, and veranda etc.) or super built up (facilities like passage area, staircase, lifts, verandah etc)

The main aim of RERA act is to eliminate the loophole lately deliveries and convey regulation within the informal sector of business.
