Remedies under CPA, RERA are concurrent


The Delhi High Court in a recent judgment held that remedies available to homebuyers under the Consumer Protection Act, 1986 (CPA), and Real Estate (Development and Regulation) Act, 2016 (RERA), are concurrent. This judgment allows flat purchasers aggrieved by errant developers to choose between redressal authorities established under the CPA or the RERA.

In the M/s M3M India Pvt Ltd v Dr Dinesh Sharma and Anr case, judgment was passed by Delhi High Court while deciding a batch of petitions moved by several real estate companies against an order passed by the National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC). The question for consideration was whether proceedings under the CPA 1986 can be commenced by homebuyers against developers after the commencement of RERA 2016.
