Tripura to tighten its grip on Rest Estate Sector with T-RERA

In order to regulate Tripura’s fast-growing real estate sector and bring transparency into the same, the state has deemed it necessary to all developers/builders/promoters who wants to build flats or housing complexes having over 500 sq km floor area or eight apartments to register his/her firm with the Tripura Real Estate Regulatory Authority (T-RERA).

From Sunday onwards, a developer/builder/promoter who wants to build flats or housing complexes having over 500 sq km floor area or eight apartments will have to register his/her firm with the Tripura Real Estate Regulatory Authority (T-RERA). It will enable the government to keep a close eye on the functioning and activities of developers, promoters and builders. 

In order to make this process easier, a web portal – rera.tripura.gov.in is already launched.  

An official of the Urban Development Department stated, “Besides, they will not be able to take any extra money from the flat buyers.” He said, “The government will monitor and try to ensure that no prospective flat buyer is cheated in any manner. All the developers, promoters and builders will have to work as per the guidelines laid down by the Urban Development department.” 

Along with the web portal, the Chief Minister also inaugurated e-municipal service through Common Service Centres (CSCs). He said, “This will enable the citizens to avail 17 services offered by Agartala Municipal Corporation. The dwellers of Agartala municipal area and other civic bodies will no longer be needed to visit the offices to pay taxes and other charges. Anybody can avail these 17 services through the CSCs. It will also boost the income of the people running the CSCs.”

So far, there are 219 CSCs in 20 urban bodies while 17 online services such as property tax, water tax, application for trade license, permission for building construction, garbage clearance, septic tank clearance, etc. The inauguration of the web-portal and e-municipality service was an effort taken to strengthen the vision of digitising the government works in Tripura.
