Bengaluru: The Karnataka Home Buyers Forum has staged an online protest on Sunday January 16 against the Karnataka Real Estate Regulatory Authority’s (K – RERA) poor implementation. The move has come after receiving no response to their memorandums.
Many home buyers from various projects around Bengaluru and Karnataka participated in the virtual andolan to voice their concerns and problems, including the lack of action taken by K – RERA against builders.
Several home buyers had filed cases against builders for a number of reasons, including poor building infrastructure, fraud in the procurement of completion certificates, and failure to complete projects that were due years ago.
Many of the buyers have been facing financial difficulties as a result of non-payment of loans taken out to purchase the homes, with some even risking homelessness.
Despite the fact that they have been filing cases with K – RERA for years, they have not received any kind of relief yet. A group of dissatisfied home buyers had approached RERA several times, submitting several memorandums in an attempt to get their demands considered.
Despite promises to make amends and dispose of cases quickly, no such action had been taken. The forum has approached the CM’s office and submitted memorandums to the PM’s office, as well as Housing Minister V. Somanna, and the Home Minister.
