Owing to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the state, the Uttar Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority has deferred the option of physical hearing of complainants.
It has now proposed to start physical hearing of complaints from May 1, 2021.
“It is to be noted that UP RERA in its 59th meeting on March 19, presided over by its Chairman Rajiv Kumar, had decided to provide the opportunity of physical hearing to parties concerned on their request with effect from May 1, 2021 subject to strict compliance of Covid protocol as applicable," said a release.
For the time being, the UP RERA will continue to hear cases virtually.
UP RERA has been hearing complaints through virtual mode under the e-courts system in order to maintain social distancing norms amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
“Further decision about offering the option of physical hearing to parties will be taken in future depending on the situation of the pandemic and directions of Central and state governments in this regard," said the UP RERA release.
