CREDAI requests Uttar Pradesh CM to extend real estate project deadline

The Confederation of Real Estate Developers’ Associations of India (CREDAI) has written to the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister requesting to extend the deposit dates of all the dues related to Noida, Greater Noida, and Yamuna Authority to 18 months without any interest so that the developer could begin construction work first and pay the liabilities once the lockdown is lifted.

In the letter by CREDAI Western UP, it’s president Prashant Tiwari has said that after the second wave of Covid 19, there has been a slowdown in the real estate sector as the migrant laborers of the site have gone back to their homes.

“It has hit the under-construction project very much and many projects have stuck at the last level. The sector is facing a shortage of funds, project sale has stalled and buyers are also facing after effect of the epidemic,” said Tiwari.

The association has also demanded that the interest rate of the outstanding amount should be taken as per the recent order of the Supreme Court, in which the Court had asked the authority to recover the outstanding amount at the rate of MCLR + 1%.

At present, this order has not been implemented and in such a situation, the state government is requested to ask all authorities to take payment of the outstanding amount under this order, so that work can be done on the project and people can get possession.

“The real estate sector was first hit by air pollution in 2019. After gaining momentum the sector was hit by lockdown and migration of labours in 2020. But the second wave Covid 19 has hit the sector before attaining full momentum in 2021 again. In such a situation, the entire sector could not function properly for the last 3 years and this is going to be the biggest reason for the delay in the project. Keeping this in mind, the deadline for completion of real estate project should be extended to a maximum of 4 years without any penalty,” Tiwari has said in the letter.

The association has also requested that all types of approvals related to the project, including building plans and many other important approvals, should be extended for 18 months.

Last year, the project affected by Covid 19 got a deadline to complete the project by 30 June 2021 to get the benefit of zero period.

“But after the Covid 19 havoc again in 2021, it is impossible for any project to reach this deadline. In such a situation, there is an appeal to the state government to eliminate this time limit and provide benefits of zero period to all the projects,” Tiwari said.
