ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Three basic needs of life are Roti, Kapda aur makaan (Food, Clothes and Home). Eventually everyone looks for an abode. Initially, people wanted a home for themselves. Soon, cities were developed into metropolitan and metro cities attracting people to settle there and enjoy all facets of life. The spree to own a house in the metro city gave birth to the real estate market.
Now, everything that we see around us, apart from the air we breathe, has some connection with property and real estate. The place that we live in or go to work, this is the place where we spend the majority of our lives consists of a type of property. If you analyze the things you saw and the places you visited today are all types of property. For example, the road you traveled, the railway station or bus terminal, the shops you stopped on, the ATM premise you transacted from, the mall, the movie theater, your office or institution, the temple and so on. So basically everything is connected to property. Now, people even own a land piece (plot in common parlance) on the moon. People like Elon Musk are aiming to develop a colony on the planet Mars. In India, Right to Property is by virtue of 44th Constitutional Amendment which inserted Article 300-A of the Constitution of India, but the right had witnessed a long tussle between legislature and judiciary. Previously the Right was contained in Article 19(1)(f) of the Constitution. There are many aspects of property which have been regulated with specific legislation, e.g., the Transfer of Property Act, Rent Control Legislations of respective states etc. Real Estate specifically, was dealt for the first time in the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016. Although, states like Maharashtra, Kerala, West Bengal, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh etc. already had legislation in place but there was a gap felt in Union Laws. The Act provides for RERA was enforced in two parts. On 26 April 2016, 59 Sections (S. 2, 20-39, 41-58, 71-78 & 81-92) were notified making them effective from May 01, 2016 enabling preparation of Real Estate Rules, setting up Regulatory Authorities, and other infrastructure. On April 19, 2017, the remaining 32 sections were notified (w.e.f. May 01, 2017) requiring registration of projects within three months.
Uttar Pradesh is the most populated state of the country and Lucknow is one of the few metro cities of the state as well as the capital. The city has the main key authorities of the real estate framework, i.e., RERA & REAT. Due to rapid population growth and for a better quality of life, Lucknow is going through unprecedented urbanization, and is developing outside their demarcated boundaries due to the urbanization. The City is being developed by Lucknow Development Authority but private players occupy a huge space. A law usually takes a certain time to pan out. The time is also required to reveal the gap and lacunae. It has been 7 years since the law has been enacted. Now is the high time to highlight the issues and challenges of the real estate laws and contribute towards further policy making. The conference is being conducted with the following objectives:
- To create awareness about the Real Estate Laws among society at large.
