Real Estate

With the advent of commercialization, the nature and scope of real estate has expanded in India in the last decade. This led to a requirement for protection of interests of various stakeholders involved, increased accountability from developers, and ultimately to the enactment of the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 (“RERA”).
