The builder cannot change the plan after it has been registered with the RERA authorities without taking the sanction of a majority of the buyers of the property. You will indeed be able to recover the booking amount by claiming the same from the RERA authorities with the help of the top RERA lawyers in India. According to RERA, at the time of the signing of the final contract, the promoter is required to provide all the documents, as well as a declaration, supported by an affidavit stating the time period within which the project or the specific phase will get completed.

Under the RERA Act, you may cancel the booking and the builder is mandated by law to refund the booking amount to you within 45 days. If the builder doesn’t refund the money to you within that time, you may initiate a complaint under the RERA authorities with the help of the best RERA lawyers in your locality. Contact us at 011-331-38-123  or visit our website to talk to expert RERA lawyers to resolve your legal issue.
