The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 does not preclude the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC) or the Consumer Forum from entertaining any complaint under Consumer Protection (CP) Act. (M/S Imperial Structures Ltd vs Anil Patni and another)
A two-judge bench of the court consisting of Justices UU Lalit and Vineet Saran held that real estate allottees can approach NCDRC apart from authorities under the RERA and there is no provision under RERA which bars initiation of a consumer complaint under CP Act.
