The authority will certify trainers to train workers for the real estate industry. MahaRERA chief Gautam Chatterjee said the training will help the labour force deliver projects of better quality, which will eventually be graded. “Consumers can access the grades given to the projects on the MahaRERA website,” said Chatterjee.
Maharashtra CREDAI president Shantilal Kataria said it will be an escalation of CREDAI’s own skills training programme. He said CREDAI will help facilitate the MahaRERA’s training through its centres.
It had earlier started a training programme for construction workers across the country in line with the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana.
Shrikant Paranjape, CREDAI-Pune Metro president, said, “The MahaRERA has, in principle, agreed to certify these trainers who, in turn, will train the workers.”
Talking about the reconciliation forum, the MahaRERA chairman said depending on the number of cases, the number of benches for the forum can be increased. He said the developers’ and consumer bodies were doing a good job of addressing consumer complaints.
About recovery warrants, Chatterjee said they were issued against developers — for not complying with orders and giving refunds to home buyers — under Section 40(1) of the Real Estate Act.
